Oakland Business Line: Trend BEMS installation
Objective: Temperature management
At Yamazaki Mazak’s European Headquarters, Manufacturing Plant & European Technology Centre in Warndon, Worcester, Oakland Air Control have just completed the installation of 7 new Trend Control Panels along with Temperature sensors for the main manufacturing areas.
Mazak are one of the world’s leading manufacturers of advanced machining technology solutions including Multi-Tasking, 5-axis, milling, turning, CNC controls and automation.
Their global clients include companies manufacturing in the fields of Automotive, Aerospace, Energy, Construction, Die and Mould, Medical and Marine.
It is essential for the manufacturing areas to be kept at a constant 21 degrees centigrade. This ensures that the very tight tolerances to which these machines are built are not affected by temperature variations at the various stages of manufacture and construction.
Mazak manufacture many of the components of their product at the Worcester site from scratch including machining their own castings, and making their own spindles, turrets, tool magazines and sheet metal covers.
