Such machines include the VERTICAL CENTER NEXUS COMPACT, a machining center built for precision medical manufacturing, VARIAXIS i-700, a Multi-Tasking machine that efficiently processes long workpieces in single setups, and the QUICK TURN NEXUS 250 MSY, a turning center that includes a second spindle and offers turning, milling and Y-axis capabilities in a single setup.

The company will also introduce a new 3-4-5 concept for better tailoring Mazak machines to specific manufacturing applications.
