Machinery Highlight: Multi-tasking Mazak Models

Machinery Highlight: Multi-tasking Mazak Models

In the manufacturing industry, there are three things directly related to your profitability:

  • Flexibility
  • Productivity
  • Efficiency

Are your processes flexible enough to change quickly to account for emergencies, last minute requests, and late additions to a project?

Is your productivity constantly improving and increasing customer retention?

Are your processes efficient enough to account for a potential drop in machine productivity and resolve the problem quickly?

When it comes to maximizing profitability, your manufacturing business needs to have machines that can take you to the next level. Whether you’re already set on buying a machine or don’t know where to begin, the professionals at ASI Machine Tool can provide the answers you’re looking for. This article is the first of a Machinery Brand Highlight series: your go-to resource for need-to-know details of the different machine brands you’ll see in your industry and what those machines are capable of doing for your production line. The first brand we will be exploring is Mazak.

Multi-tasking Mazak Models that Will Improve Your Production

In a day and age where companies and consumers need their products now, your biggest ally will be machine tools that can do it all: be versatile, work quickly and accurately, and maintain ease of use. The question is, do such machines exist? They do. They’re called multi-tasking machines. These machines take multi-tasking to a new level and are able to execute 5-6 operations simultaneously, making them integral to streamlining a manufacturing production chain.

As opposed to having turning, milling, drilling, tapping and deep-hole boring remain as processes handled by multiple machines, multi-tasking machines combine all of those process capabilities into one seriously powerful machine.

If you’re looking for high accuracy and high quality, while also significantly reducing setup time, you’ll want to get a Mazak multi-tasking machine on your team.

Mazak Multi-Tasking Machine Possible Configurations:

  • Second Turning Spindles
  • Multiple Tool Turrets
  • Rotary Tool Stations
  • Y-Axis Off-Centerline Capability
  • Tilt/Rotary B-Axis Milling Spindles
  • Rotary/Tilt Tables
  • Large Capacity Tool Magazines

Benefits of Combining Operations:

  • Reduce inaccuracies that occur when parts move across multiple workstations.
  • Reduce the amount of extra man-hours required to transition products between workstations.
  • Eliminate in-process inventory that linger between stand-alone machine tools.
  • Eliminate wait time on overall product completion.

5 Levels of Multi‑Tasking Mazak Brands

Adding multi-tasking technology to your production line will ensure your production team can produce even the most complex parts in the world in a quick and cost-effective manner. When you purchase a Mazak multi-tasking machine, you’re ensured a large range of capabilities. Those capabilities are consolidated into 5 levels below.
