As part of its ongoing commitment to American manufacturing, Mazak will host a special three-day Discover More with a Mazak open house at its Midwest Technology Center in Schaumburg, Illinois. Slated for June 26 - 28, the event will highlight the facility's recent 18,000-square-foot expansion, cutting demonstrations on the latest productivity-improving machine tools and industry expert presentations. Mazak will also offer a sneak peek of its plans for IMTS 2012 and the expansion of its Kentucky manufacturing operations.
The Midwest Technology Center expansion allows Mazak to further support the continuous upswing of manufacturing business throughout the region as well as provide its customers with even more advanced technology, support and training for increasing their competitiveness. The expansion also offers an increased opportunity for collaboration with local manufacturers with respect to new technology and process development and improvement.
"The vibrant manufacturing market and our long-term commitment to our customers in the Midwest convinced us to accelerate our expansion plans for our Technology Center in Illinois," said Brian Papke, president of Mazak Corporation. "Business across all industry segments, including automotive, aerospace, medical and energy, is improving in the Midwest and nationwide. The expansion of our Midwest Headquarters and Technology Center gives manufacturers more resources to improve their productivity."
The Midwest Technology Center's new 124-seat auditorium and two state-of-the-art training rooms give Mazak the means to host more events with its VIP technology partners. In fact, an incredibly diverse array of no-charge classes and seminars will ensure customers achieve a maximum return on their machine tool investments and achieve greater effectiveness in meeting their customers' needs.
Visitors to the expanded Midwest Technology Center will also find spacious areas for turnkey projects and test cuts, as well as expanded machine tool technology demonstration facilities. Such additions give Mazak customers even more opportunity to process actual industry components from various materials, including polymers, steels, aluminum and high temperature alloys, using the latest machine tool technology.
