Machine tool builder Mazak will host a portion of the Valve Manufacturers Association (VMA) tour from April 30 to May 2 at its North American headquarters in Florence, Ky. The VMA represents North American manufacturers of valves, actuator and controls. The Mazak stop is open to VMA members and will include a tour of the campus as well as workshops on topics such as MTConnect, supply chain management and lean manufacturing. The University of Kentucky will also conduct workshops on lean manufacturing, with a focus on the success of Toyota’s eight-step problem-solving process.
