Mazak’s compact Tooltech tool magazine is designed to store big, heavy and large-diameter tools in a small space on the shop floor. Special tool carts and docking stations eliminate the need for operators to manually lift tools in and out of the system, speeding and easing tooling setups in addition to making them safer.

The magazine accommodates as many as 206 tools in the same amount of space required for a 120-tool chain-type magazine storage system, the company says. Tools are organized by length and diameter and stored in racks, one designated for tools with diameters larger than 100 mm and the other for smaller diameters.

With its carts and docking station, the Tooltech ensures easy and safe handling of tools with diameters ranging to 360 mm, lengths ranging to 800 mm and weighing as much as 40 kg. Operators load the magazine’s tool carts with any needed tools, and roll it directly into the storage system’s magazine tool-docking station where the tools load into racks. A touchscreen control panel eases operation.

As a shop’s tooling needs increase, the magazine’s storage capacity can expand to as many as five levels and accommodate as many as 250 tools via an extension of the frame.
