Mazak's machine tools are used to process various aircraft parts
Machine tool manufacturers are required to supply high-performance, high-productivity and high-accuracy 5-axis machines and multi-tasking machines and propose new techniques to process difficult-to-cut materials and integrated components.
Mazak's extensive product range includes various machines suitable for the aircraft industry, and today many Mazak machine tools are playing active roles in aerospace manufacturers around the world.
Opening of the Aerospace Technology Center for aerospace industry
The first Aerospace Technology Center, which is devoted to the aerospace industry, was opened in 1999 in the Mazak Western Technology Center in Gardena, California.
This location was chosen since the center of the US aerospace industry is located on the West Coast.
Its main functions are to provide support to customers and develop processing technologies for the industry.
To enhance these activities in response to the currently booming aerospace industry and its expansion on a global scale, we opened an Aerospace Technology Center at the company headquarters in Japan in September, 2016.
The Aerospace Technology Center in Japan is currently exhibiting the latest VARIAXIS 5-axis machining centers, as well as the INTEGREX multi-tasking machines. Advanced processing of example aircraft components such as frames, casings, blisks, blades and landing gear by these machines is demonstrated.
