The latest multimillion-pound investment at Mazak's manufacturing plant in the UK includes the installation of a state-of-the-art twin-pallet Versatech H V-140N/280 and FJV-60/80 double-column vertical machining centre as the company continues to increase its production capacity post-Brexit. The machines will be used to manufacture large component parts for new machines built at its plant in Worcester.

The latest in the Versatech Series of multiple-surface 5-axis double column machining centres, the V-140N/280 can continuously machine large workpieces up to 3,100 mm in length thanks to a 10,000 rpm 50-taper spindle head with B- and C-axis capability. Alongside the FJV-60/80, it has replaced older on-site machines and is to allow the company to increase the facility’s capacity for producing large components, enabling more work to be completed in-house and further guaranteeing best machining quality.

The installations are the latest in a series of investments made at Mazak’s Worcester facility, which is the company’s sole machine tool manufacturing site on the continent. The manufacturer had previously installed two new state-of-the-art manufacturing cells in 2019 to make parts for its extensive range of UK-made machine tools, with each cell equipped with an Integrex i-Series machine from its flagship Multi-Tasking solutions range, and Robo Job automation system.
