Mazak Corporation has established Mazak Automation Systems, a new department at its North American headquarters in Florence, Kentucky. The company says the department will offer a comprehensive range of automation solutions and enable customers to benefit from the company's experience in manufacturing and machining technologies. Systems include process and software engineering, project management, application support, customer support and customer training. The team is expected to grow quickly to accommodate increased demand due to ever-more-intense global competition.
“Global competition has intensified over the last decade, but advanced parts manufacturing technologies allow American industries to become more productive and retain their competitive advantage,” says Brian Papke, president of Mazak. “With Mazak Automation Systems, we will work together with customers to ensure that their new investments provide the greatest benefit possible.”
