Knox Machinery, located in Franklin, Ohio, will represent Mazak Corp. as its southern Ohio distributor. “We are looking forward to a productive relationship with Mazak and one that will truly benefit all local area manufacturers,” says Greg Knox, president of Knox Machinery. “Not only will it provide easy access to the expansive range of Mazak machine tool technology, but also to application and training support.

Other Mazak news: The company has expanded and newly updated its spindle rebuild department, which will now be located in the South Building on Mazak’s Kentucky manufacturing campus. 

The grand opening will take place during the company’s Discover 2019 event, which will be held on November 4-15 at the Kentucky manufacturing campus. The event will present attendees with new technology, advanced manufacturing solutions and industry insight.

The spindle rebuild department, which supports every Mazak machine tool spindle in North America, will keep upwards of 1,000 rebuilt spindles in stock and ready for exchange. The expansion will not only make room for additional technicians, but will also allow the department to boost its rebuild output to 100 spindles per month.

With the new facility, the company has the capacity to return repaired spindles in three to five days and ship remanufactured spindles in less than 24 hours.

To reach that level of efficiency, Mazak has significantly expanded the new spindle department’s work area, and the clean, bright and ergonomic workspace will streamline rebuild operational flow, efficiency and speed, as will its closer proximity to the Mazak parts department in the South Building. Mazak has also incorporated new advanced technologies, including spindle balancing units and other process systems intended for accommodating larger spindles.
