Article about Mazak using MTConnect and MERLIN
Mark Albert, editor-in-chief of Modern Machine Shop Magazine, wrote a fantastic article titled “Data-Driven Manufacturing Moves Ahead at Mazak”. The article discusses how machine giant Mazak is utilizing MTConnect at their North American Headquarters and Technology Center in Florence, KY. MERLIN and MTConnect’s capabilities of integrating throughout the shop floor are discussed at length throughout the article. Mazak is currently in the process of rolling out MERLIN throughout the entire Florence, KY plant.
