Putting productivity to the fore

Yamazaki Mazak is set to showcase 13 productivity-enhancing solutions from its global portfolio of machine tool and laser-cutting machines, as part of a MACH stand dedicated to maximising efficiency for machine users across all areas of the UK’s manufacturing landscape.

With key sectors such as oil and gas making a resurgence in 2017, coupled with the ongoing buoyancy of automotive manufacturing and the fast-paced nature of the UK’s thriving medical devices market, Mazak will bring a stand fully-focused on showcasing its broad range of sector-specific metalcutting solutions that can enable manufacturers of all sizes and stages of the supply chain to drive productivity and cut downtime.

Productivity will be at the heart of its MACH 2018 stand, and Mazak will also use the platform to showcase its suite of Industry 4.0 solutions, which were first unveiled at EMO.
