Conference Tower Tokyo Big Sight

Field Report From Japan
The Japan International Machine Tool Fair (JIMTOF) is Japan’s most important machine tool show. The 2008 show reinforced the trends observed at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) that took place in Chicago two months earlier. Along with a review of the show, this article summarizes editorial visits to two new machine tool factories. The report shows that Japan continues to be a dynamic force in machine design and construction.

Laser Cutter Taps Into “Done-in-One” Fabrication
Multitasking machines offer a number of advantages, including reducing multiple setups that require manual material handling and refixturing. However, many fabricators still use multiple operations on separate machines to process tube and pipe components. Secondary operations such as tapping are especially prob

Company Profile

MAZAK OPTONICS CORPORATION established a presence in the U.S. in 1987 for the marketing, sales, service, and support of Mazak laser cutting systems in North America. Originally a joint venture, Yamazaki Mazak Corporation obtained full control of the operations in 2005. Mazak Optonics specializes solely in CO2 laser cutting processes for the metal fabrication, structural steel, and construction markets. Our parent company, Yamazaki Mazak Corporation (Oguchi, Japan), is the world’s largest manufacturer of machine tools, including CNC turning centers, machining centers, and laser cutting systems. Our company’s commitment to technology innovation and quality has resulted in worldwide manufacturing and distribution of hundreds of types of high-productivity machines, cells and systems. With the combined strengths of Mazak’s engineering, manufacturing, and commitment to continuous improvement, Mazak Optonics has become the leading supplier of CO2 laser cutting systems in North America. For nearly twenty years, we have been at the forefront of laser technologies as the industry began to accept laser processing as a viable technology, not just a lab experiment. Our approach has always been one of consultation and education for our customers to help them apply laser processing to their advantage and achieve world-class competitiveness. The country’s largest staff of laser engineers and support personnel – dedicated solely to laser cutting – is based in our Schaumburg, IL Headquarters and Technology Center and in many other regional locations to meet our customers needs. This brainpower and the powerful 2-D and 3-D laser systems provide time and application studies for specific customer parts, proven and demonstrated in our 15,000 sq. ft. Technology Center. In addition, the benefits of various stages of automation are studied and justified in this age of scarce and costly manpower. Our training headquarters is also in the Schaumburg facility, with classroom sessions supplemented by “hands-on” experience on the center floor. Management, operator, programmer, safety, and distributor training are developed and held here on an ongoing basis.
