Mazak’s National Service Department and Training Department has moved into the company’s expanded National Technology Center & Center for Multi-Tasking and Manufacturing Excellence in Florence, Kentucky. The National Technology Center is the second of three major expansions which together will increase total floor space at the company’s Kentucky manufacturing campus to 800,000 square feet. The first expansion involved the company’s North American Parts Center and Spindle Repair Department and enables the company to stock more than 52,000 unique part numbers valued at more than $65 million. The third and most significant will involve the company’s manufacturing plant and is expected to boost production capacity to as many as 200 machines per month.
The National Technology Center now occupies 100,183 square feet of space and houses six dedicated customer-training classrooms and space for the company’s National Service Department and MAZATROL Control Support Group. The facility provides ample room for customer hands-on training courses as well as machine maintenance training classes.
Mazak’s National Technology Center is the hub for its eight Regional Technology Centers. Each offers full access to advanced Multi-Tasking and five-axis machines, training courses, applications assistance and seminars, parts support and leading-edge networking and manufacturing technologies, which collectively provide Mazak customers with the resources required to achieve lean, efficient manufacturing operations.
