FLORENCE, Ky., July 9, 2021 – On September 14-15, Mazak will host an open house at its new Florida Technical Center in Orlando. The company established the fully staffed facility to provide manufacturers with easy access to demonstrations of the latest in advanced Mazak manufacturing technologies, along with sales, service, application and training support.
During the event, Mazak will showcase the facility’s training center, which conducts courses to help manufacturers increase the output of their existing workforces and shorten the learning curve for new, less-skilled employees. Mazak sales manager for Florida Perry Leonor said that the new facility will also function as a collaborative education location where Mazak partners for tooling, accessories and digital technologies can conduct presentations on an ongoing basis to enhance customer support.
On the new technology side, the event will also feature demonstrations of two machines from Mazak’s recently launched Ez Series – the VC-Ez 20 Vertical Machining Center and the QT-Ez 12MSY Horizontal Turning Center – and a machine from its new INTEGREX i-H Series, the INTEGREX i-100HST Multi-Tasking Machine.
As part of Mazak’s Ez Series, both the VC-Ez 20 and QT-Ez 12MSY offer job shops reliable, robust machine-tool performance at a lower capital investment. To streamline machine programming and shorten the learning curve for new operators, Ez machines feature Mazak’s new MAZATROL SmoothEz CNC with dual 800 MHz processors, 512 MB of RAM and a vibrant 15" capacitive touch screen that includes a full keyboard and displays up to 60 lines of code.
Machines in the Mazak INTEGREX i-H Multi-Tasking Series provide shops with the flexibility to process a virtually endless variety of part types without additional capital expenses. All INTEGREX i-H Series machines feature Mazak’s new MAZATROL SmoothAi control, which includes enhancements on the MAZATROL side and added flexibility on the EIA/ISO side, along with an optional second screen. The second monitor displays the status of multiple connected Mazaks within the same shop.
