Manufacturing for the motorsports industry requires consistency, precision, speed and performance gained from advanced machine tool technology. At the 2012 Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Show, taking place Nov. 29 – Dec. 1 in Orlando, Florida., Mazak will demonstrate how its innovative manufacturing solutions can keep motorsports manufacturing shops out in front and ahead of the competition. PRI attendees who visit Mazak booth 4169 will experience the advanced technology of Mazak’s Vertical Center Nexus Compact vertical machining center, Quick Turn Nexus 200-II MY turning center as well as the Variaxis j-500 and Integrex i-200 multitasking machines.
While each of these Mazak machines serves a different application purpose, they all offer consistency in precision, speed and performance throughout the part-production process, as well as the versatility to quickly adapt vehicle components to the ever-changing racing track conditions and racing industry requirements. In fact, these are the very reasons Penske Racing uses Mazak machines to produce various critical racecar components, including cylinder heads, engine blocks, intake manifolds and key suspension parts. In fact, Penske maintains "the team couldn’t do what it does on the racetrack without Mazak machine tool technology."
