Mazak powers to MACH with 13 machines and its biggest ever stand

Yamazaki Mazak is planning its greatest ever MACH show with its biggest ever stand hosting a total of 13 machines at the 2016 exhibition.

From entry-level machines, through to 5-axis, horizontal machining centres and lasers, the Mazak stand will showcase the finest machines across the entire Mazak range, many of them equipped with state-of-the-art SMOOTH Technology, the world’s fastest CNC.

The 800 m2 stand will be themed “It’s all about you”, which references Mazak’s continued focus on its customers and practical solutions to their specific machining needs and applications.

Amongst the highlights will be the INTEGREX i-400AM which combines additive and subtractive manufacturing technology, and the new 5-axis VARIAXIS i-1050T, specifically designed for the heavy duty machining of large workpieces.


In addition, the stand will also host the latest version of the extremely popular UK-built VTC 800 series, the 800/30 SLR, and Mazak’s newest horizontal machining centre, the HCN 5000/50. CNC turning centres will be represented by the QUICK TURN PRIMOS 150S, the QUICK TURN COMPACT 200MY and the QUICK TURN NEXUS 250 MS with RoboJob automation. Laser cutting will be represented by the new 6kW version of the OPTIPLEX 3015 Fiber. All of the machines will be live cutting for the duration of the show.

Richard Smith, Managing Director UK and Ireland Sales Division, commented: “We’ve taken the decision to make MACH 2016 our biggest ever UK trade show presence, in terms of both stand size and machine numbers.

“This is a clear demonstration of our confidence in the quality and performance of our machines across the range and also our continued belief in the robust health of UK manufacturing, from OEMs and tier one suppliers, through to the thriving subcontract manufacturing base.

“Many of the machines at MACH 2016, will be making their UK public exhibition debuts, which means it is the first time that UK machine tool users will be able to see these machines live cutting.”

He continued: “2015 was an outstanding year for Mazak machine sales in the UK and we are confident that 2016, a MACH year, will continue in the same vein. I look forward to welcoming UK machine tool users onto our stand at MACH 2016 and demonstrating our state-of-the-art machining technology.”
