Mazak has been an ardent supporter of MTConnect since its inception several years ago, and that initiative continues with the company’s participation in (MC)2 MTConnect: Connecting Manufacturing Conference, the first ever MTConnect conference.

The event, scheduled for November 8 – 10, 2011, at the Hyatt Regency in Cincinnati, Ohio, is one that will focus on both the business and technical aspects of MTConnect – fostering conversations about implementing the standard, as well as the increased productivity and return on investment it can provide today’s manufacturers.

“Mazak recognizes the significance of the MTConnect protocol, which is why we are participating in the (MC)2  event and why all our new machines areMTConnect enabled,” says Brian Papke, president of Mazak. “MTConnect’s value to our customers is in the ability for them to establish extensive and open channels of communication for plug-and-play interconnectivity between devices, equipment and systems to improve operational efficiency and optimize productivity. MTConnect is a marvelous opportunity to improve machine tool utilization, and we encouragemanufacturers to take advantage of the MTConnect Conference.”

(MC)2 will offer many benefits to a wide range of attendees, including end users, equipment suppliers, software developers, distributors, independent software vendors and consultants. In addition, everyone from C-level executives to students to those who just want to gain a better understanding of MTConnect is welcome to attend.

Attendees will learn from the experts during conference tracks that will be both technical and business oriented. Technical tracks will place a strong emphasis on the “hands-on” side of MTConnect, while the business tracks will focus on quantifying increased productivity. Additionally, (MC)2 will showcase commercially available products that use the MTConnect standard.
