DISCOVER 2015 Attendees

DISCOVER 2015 a Success!

Thousands Harnessed the Power of Advanced Manufacturing

With metalworking professionals from all over North America in attendance, DISCOVER 2015 proved to be this year’s top productivity destination. Not only did the six-day technology and education event at Mazak's North American headquarters showcase the latest metalworking equipment for improved productivity, it also explored how connectivity between smart machines, software and the Internet creates an explosion of data that will drive factories of the future. 

In terms of new technology, Mazak demonstrated highly optimized part production for every industry segment using over 30 of its latest machine tools. Demonstrations included: the debut of the new SMOOTH TECHNOLOGY platform, alternative machining techniques and unprecedented Kentucky innovation via the VCN 705D, VTC-805G and QTZ 250.  

Tours of our new iSMART Factory showcased how we are leading the way in digital resource productivity via free-flow data sharing and plant-wide connectivity. Attendees saw first-hand how our factory uses MTConnect and process support software to monitor then harvest data from all the different machines, cells and devices on the production floor. 

As part of the factory tours, attendees got to witness the debut of the Mazak SmartBoxand experience its benefits in a real-world setting. Ideal for large production environments, this revolutionary data collection, analysis and security platform creates a secure, digitally connected production environment where data sets become actionable intelligence for improved productivity and increased responsiveness to market changes.  

Over 60 technology presentations rounded out the event by sharing valuable manufacturing insight on topics such as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), adaptive gear machining, cutting strategies for high-temperature alloys and more.   

If you were a DISCOVER 2015 attendee, we appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to come experience the latest in metalworking technology and learning what the future holds for advanced manufacturing.  We hope you went back to work feeling inspired by all of the latest tools and techniques for improved productivity and profitability. If you didn’t attend, we’re sorry to have missed you—just be sure to remember DISCOVER in 2017, as it truly is an event no one in metalworking can afford to miss.

Aerospace Machining

Aerospace parts present some unique challenges, which is one reason we opened the Mazak Technology Center in Gardena, CA, in 1989. As a part of our National Technology Network, its intent is to continuously improve the machining process while providing application support to the aerospace industry.

Automotive Machining

The shift to lean manufacturing has replaced dedicated machines with more flexible systems. Maximizing uptime has been key to reducing part costs. Done-In-One machining has reduced WIP inventories and improved cash flow. Our turnkey approach to manufacturing has created opportunities for companies to improve their bottom line like never before.

Contract Manufacturing

Traditional job shops have had to evolve into leaner, more flexible operations to stay competitive - and even stay alive. And here at Mazak, we've made substantial changes in the way we make machine tools, in order to continue making advanced technologies available to all.

Medical Machining

The parts are small- to medium-sized and precise. The machine tools that make them are required to perform intricate operations with outstanding surface finishes and unquestionable repeatability. In this world of medical parts, Mazak presents an opportunity for you to really shine.
