CNC Automation for Mazak machine tools
“With four machines and Fastems FMS we can achieve an output of 28,000 hours/year, including downtime for maintenance, troubleshooting, and holidays. To obtain the same results using stand-alone machines, we would need at least 10 units with just as many operators, meaning an obvious increase in costs.”
CEO of A. Abete, a company with Mazak and Fastems
Are you looking to automate your Mazak machine tools to make the most of your investment? Look no more – Fastems has automated Mazak machines for decades, helping hundreds of CNC manufacturers globally take their productivity to the next level. We automate both lathes and milling machines, from easy entry-level solutions to more complex production systems with any additional processes integrated. In addition to new machines, we can automate the already existing machines on your shop floor.
Over the past 40 years we have integrated hundreds of Mazak milling and turning machines, so we have an extensive library of ready-made interfaces available. You can also have multiple different Mazak models integrated into the same automation system.

Triple the value of your Mazaks with CNC automation
We have an extensive history of creating extremely well performing production systems to metal shops all over the world, together with Mazak. When you combine your Mazak machine tool(s) with Fastems flexible automation, you can get closer to the ultimate target of manufacturing of doing the right things at the right time – all the time. In numbers, that means during all of the yearly 8,760 hours.
Automation transforms daily operations, making them much more productive, efficient and stable. Automation helps in minimizing set-up times as the next batch can be be prepared while the previous is being machined. At the end of the day, the operational benefits are measurable in the five key production metrics mentioned in the pyramid above.
Improved financial results are of course driven by development in operations such as higher utilization of resources, more throughput, higher quality and more proactive production planning. The effect in short: the production achieves higher volumes and profits and operates with less money (less stocks and WIP).
Customers and people
Smarter operations are good both for the workforce and customers. They help fight the challenge of finding and keeping skilled labor and being able to deliver quality on time – while remaining profitable.
