November 4th, 2021 10:45 am | by admin

XYZ Machine Tools, in partnership with CERATIZIT UK & Ireland, has opened the doors to its latest Demonstration and Training Centre. Located on the Advanced Manufacturing Park, the centre is strategically placed to support customers looking for the latest in machine tool technology from XYZ Machine Tools.

The facility is equipped with a broad range of XYZ machines from ProtoTRAK controlled lathes and mills, through its heavy-duty and linear rail machining and turning centres to the flagship UMC-5X 5-axis machining centre. Working with CERATIZIT UK & Ireland, XYZ Machine Tools customers can visit the centre to investigate not only the machines, but also to develop machining strategies to help improve manufacturing efficiencies. It will also be utilised to provide training for those customers in the region who have purchased new machine tools, where they can make use of the classroom facilities alongside hands-on practical use of the machines.

The Technical Centre is ideally placed to provide support to manufacturing companies both locally and nationally. With the full range of CERATIZIT products available for use on a wide range of machine tools, the aim is to support customers with both training and process development

On the opening day visitors from across the manufacturing sector descended on the centre to witness live demonstrations. “The turnout exceeded our expectations and is a sign that manufacturing is returning to some form of normality and customers are continuing to look to invest in new machine tools to meet changing and growing demands on their manufacturing capacity,” says Nigel Atherton, managing director of XYZ Machine Tools.

Tony Pennington, managing director of CERATIZIT UK & Ireland says: “This new Technical Centre is an extension of our previous facility, but by locating it on the Advanced Manufacturing Park we have been able to expand the services that we can provide to customers with a dedicated team helping to support the development of machining processes. We are really excited about working with our machine tool partners to create what will be a focus of manufacturing technology, providing practical solutions to machining issues. The reactions of visitors on the opening day are proof that we are delivering a service that will become increasingly valuable in enhancing their productivity.”
