Yamazaki Mazak’s traditional November open house will boast a star-studded cast of machines, guest speakers, tours and live machining demonstrations. The event, which will take place on 20-22 November at Mazak’s European Technology Centre in Worcester, revolves around the theme of manufacturing excellence and aims to give attendees a comprehensive overview of the latest machining technologies, including laser, additive manufacturing, machine connectivity and sector specialisation.
Of the 20 machines on display, the stand-out is likely to be the Integrex i-400S machining centre, which is equipped with Mazak’s SmoothX CNC. The latest function on the i-400S is Smooth Gear Cutting software, which combines multi-task machining and Mazak’s latest developments in gear manufacturing processes, including Smooth Gear Skiving, Smooth Gear Milling and Smooth Gear Hobbing. The software allows the operator to develop complex gear machining programs by entering the gear data via a user-friendly dialogue on the CNC, thus reducing set-up times.
