Mazak’s new Ez Series of machines were among the more popular displays at the company’s recent DISCOVER 2023 held recently in Florence, Ky.

Mazak believes its lineup of Ez vertical, turning and Multi-Tasking machining centres can offer solutions for every manufacturer. In the Job Shop Solutions Action Area at DISCOVER 2023, the VC-Ez Series Vertical Machining Centres on display included the new MAZATROL SmoothEz5 CNC with 5-axis functionality. Additional VC-Ez machines and the 2-axis QTE-100M SG also showed their capabilities.
