Mazak Launching Virtual Event Series, Technology Center, Facility Tours
The three-pronged virtual outreach initiative is headlined by the All Axes LIVE series of virtual technology events to begin in August.
Mazak has announced the launch of a three-pronged holistic digital customer experience featuring an interactive tour of its Kentucky campus, an immersive Virtual Technology Center and All Axes LIVE, an ongoing series of online technology events.
“At Mazak, we are in a unique position to understand the changing needs and expectations of North American manufacturers, both as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ever increasingly competitive business landscape,” says Dan Janka, president. “As a local manufacturer, we have challenged ourselves to be agile and find new ways of doing business. Our new digital experience applies what we’ve learned to provide unprecedented access to our products, technology, customer support and expertise, and most importantly, puts our customers in the driver’s seat.”
The first installment of All Axes LIVE will air from Mazak’s Midwest Technology Center August 11, 2020. The event will launch the new Variaxis C-600 five-axis machining center as well as new automation solutions. Automation highlighted during All Axes LIVE will include the RoboJob TA200.
An extension of Mazak’s successful All Axes podcast, All Axes LIVE offers participants a range of on-demand educational sessions, facility tours, live cutting demonstrations and the ability to ask questions in real time, the company says. Additional details and online registration will be available free of charge beginning July 6, 2020.
Following the launch of its series of All Axes LIVE events, Mazak will roll out its Virtual Technology Center and Interactive 360 Kentucky Campus Tour to extend the product and technology experience beyond traditional events. The Virtual Technology Center will feature a rotating lineup of machines, automation systems and digital technology, as well as the ability to request quotes, schedule in-person visits and means for customers to connect with Mazak experts. The interactive 360 Kentucky Campus Tour will enable visitors to explore Mazak’s North American Manufacturing Plant, National Technology Center and National Parts Center, including the newly completed Spindle Remanufacturing Facility. Details on both the Virtual Technology Center and Interactive 360 Kentucky Campus Tour will be available in the coming days and weeks.
