By visiting the website emo.mazakeu.com users will have the opportunity to virtually experience the Mazak stand, accessing all the information available to a regular stand visitor, from the comfort of their own mobile phone or office desktop.

The virtual experience is packed with information about Mazak’s world debuts, integrated automation solutions and CNC technology, with the virtual 360 stand tour promising the same level of information to virtual visitors as those who visit the stand in person.

Visitors can watch machine and automation videos, access technical information and learn more about services such as Mazak’s ‘Go Green environmental manufacturing initiatives such as the Smooth Energy Dashboards and Mazak iCONNECT, a new customer service portal being launched at the show.

New machines being exhibited include two world debuts, the new European-built machines, the VCE-600, a high-specification entry-level machining center with a large Y-axis stroke, and the VCN-700, a new ‘performance-line’ machining center that is the latest addition to the highly successful VCN range.

New automation systems include the latest in 5-axis automation and the preview model of Ez Loader 10 (pronounced ‘easy’), a highly portable plug-and-play collaborative robot ideally suited to jobshops and subcontractors operating multiple machines. In addition, the virtual stand includes information about the new SmoothEz control, the latest addition to the MAZATROL conversational programming range.
