Mazak Corp. has completed the expansion of its Spindle Rebuild Department as part of a $15 million investment in its Florence, Ken.-based manufacturing campus.
The expansion coincides with other Mazak investments, including new Technical Centers in Northern California, Florida and most recently Edmonton, Alta., all of which have been developed to provide local manufacturers with fast and reliable access to expertise, training, service and support.
Mazak has also installed a new state-of-the-art manufacturing cell with fully automated storage and retrieval system, six of Mazak’s most advanced machine tools and several of its Mazak Smooth Technology digital process monitoring solutions. The upgrades to the production facility, which has been expanded nearly 20 times since it opened in 1974, will allow the company to satisfy growing customer demand and provide the shortest possible turnaround times.
Check out the new expanded Spindle Rebuild Department and Mazak’s entire manufacturing campus as part of an interactive 360 Kentucky Campus Tour. This virtual interactive tour is part of Mazak’s recently launched three-pronged holistic digital customer experience, which also features an immersive Virtual Technology Center and All Axes LIVE, an ongoing series of robust online events where attendees gain exclusive access to new never-before-seen Mazak manufacturing technology.
The Spindle Rebuild Department supports every Mazak machine tool spindle in North America, covering a wide range of horsepower ratings and speeds. As a cost-effective option for its customers, the expanded department will keep upwards of 1,000 rebuilt spindles in stock and ready for exchange, especially those found in Mazak’s most popular machine models.
“Mazak’s Spindle Rebuild Department leverages over 30 years of spindle build expertise to offer the industry’s best spindle warranty,” said Matt Whissel, spindle repair manager for the Mazak Spindle Rebuild Department. “We understand our customers don’t have time to wait, and Mazak is truly committed to doing whatever we can to support these customers. And with our new facility, we have the capacity to return repaired spindles in three to five days and ship remanufactured spindles in less than 24 hours.”
Details on the interactive 360 Kentucky Campus Tour and Virtual Technology Center will be announced soon. For updates, visit MazakUSA.com.
