Mazak to open a brand-new European Technology Centre in Milan, Italy

Yamazaki Mazak is set to open a brand-new headquarters for its European laser business in Milan, Italy.

Established more than a century ago in Japan, Mazak is a gold standard in the industry when it comes to cutting equipment. Buying a machine from the Japanese manufacturer means relying on the most innovative and advanced technology delivered by customer-oriented experts.

Over its long history, the company has set up 10 production plants and multiple sales subsidiaries worldwide, with 14 of them being in Europe.

The rising importance of the European subsidiaries, as well as the developments in laser cutting technology, has ultimately led to the creation of a dedicated site, the brand-new European Technology Centre (ETC) Laser alongside the Italian subsidiary, located in Cerro Maggiore, near Milan.

The grand opening of the ETC Laser will take place from 26th to 28th May 2022. Two brand-new machines will be the stars of the show: The Optiplex 3015 NEO S-15 and the FG-220.

The new 800m² facility features a large showroom where a selection of the company’s flagship laser-cutting machines will be in operation, a clean room, for maintenance operations on delicate optical components such as cutting heads; and other technological solutions related to laser-cutting machines. The showroom also includes a Nitrogen Generator that, together with a Gas Mixer, allows Mazak’s engineers to develop new cutting technologies and processes.

Customers will be able to enjoy multiple events and open-days to better understand the company’s expertise. Such an ample floor space can host a complete line-up of machinery to enhance technical training courses with hands-on experiences.
