Mazak’s Smooth Technology platform – the foundation of Mazak’s iSMART Factory Concept – is revolutionizing today’s part manufacturing processes through smart machines, big data, sophisticated analytics and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). 

As part of the platform, Mazak demonstrated the user-friendly programming capabilities and processing speed of its MAZATROL SmoothX and MAZATROL SmoothG CNC as well as its new MAZATROL SmoothC control at IMTS last month. These controls have transformed the way Mazak equipment performs, especially in terms of 5-axis and complex contouring operations.
 
In today’s smart factories, Multi-Tasking and 5-axis machine tools with enhanced single-setup, DONE IN ONE® part-processing capabilities are crucial. And Mazak’s HYBRID Multi-Tasking technology, such as its new VC-500 AM HYBRID Multi-Tasking machine, are taking the concept to even higher levels of sophistication and output – building part features to near net shape up to ten times faster than other comparable systems.
