Industry 4.0

What is Mazak's role in Industry 4.0?

The pressure to increase productivity, quality and to supply more and more information to customers…
                   … from machine utilisation rates through to 3D simulations of 5-axis programmes, is already filtering down the supply chain to even the smallest machine shop.

For this reason, Mazak has developed SMOOTH Technology, a CNC that has the capability to bring the Industry 4.0 principles of connectivity, productivity and data analytics into any manufacturing plant, factory or machine shop.


Mazak’s commitment to Industry 4.0 is not a concept or an aspiration. Our commitment to Industry 4.0 goes beyond merely providing the platform, SMOOTH Technology that can act as the catalyst for its implementation.
