Mazak moves into expanded National Technology Center | Business
FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) - The National Service Department and Training Department of the Mazak Corporation has moved into their expanded National Technology Center & Center for Multi-Tasking and Manufacturing Excellence in Florence. The move was made official on Tuesday.
The National Technology Center marks the second of three major expansions that will add significantly to Mazak’s Kentucky manufacturing campus, ultimately increasing its total floor space to 800,000 square feet and positioning it as one of the largest machine tool factories in the country. The first of the three expansions was that of the company’s North American Parts Center and Spindle Repair Department, which allows Mazak to now stock over 52,000 unique part numbers valued at more than $65 million to provide customers with one of the industry’s most expansive spare parts inventories. The third and most significant expansion is that of Mazak’s manufacturing plant that will boost the company’s production capacity to as many as 200 machines per month to meet the needs of various types of machines and support.
“The expanded National Technology Center will provide customers with significantly enhanced applications support and customer’s learning opportunities,” said Brian Papke, president of Mazak Corporation. “We will also be able to demonstrate larger-size machines and automation systems to create increased opportunities for process and productivity solutions, including complete turnkey manufacturing systems.”
All customer training courses will be conducted in the new larger facility beginning the week of January 7, 2013.
The facility provides ample room for customer hands-on training courses as well as machine maintenance training classes. For a complete list of available training classes, please visit https://support.mazakcorp.com.
