Colchester Machine Tool Solutions are hosting a two-day open house on Tuesday 10 October & Wednesday 11 October at their European Technology Centre in Elland, West Yorkshire. This is their first open house in 4 years, so naturally, a whole host of new products to showcase!
The open house signals a new slate of products on offer from Colchester, who have been trusted in the industry for over 100 years. Across the two-day event, there will be live product demonstrations and talks on all their very latest product ranges, as well as refreshments, goodies and a special prize giveaway!
Leading the new line-up is the Storm Vertical Machining Centre range, offering linear guideways, box ways & compact toolroom machine variants, all capable of heavy-duty and precise machining.
2023 marks the 30th anniversary of Tornado CNC Turning Centres and this year, Colchester have brought them back better than ever in new and modern configurations to give you exceptional rigidity and accuracy for any machining project.
The Colchester Student centre lathe is known throughout the industry to many as the ultimate training and apprentice’s machine tool. This year, Colchester are releasing the Student CNC lathe, a modernised variant proudly designed and engineered in the UK and fitted with the latest Fanuc CNC controls, giving the user ultimate flexibility in programming, including ISO, conversational Manual Guide i, or via CAD/CAM.
Also on display will be new CNC and manual turret mills, providing extensive reliability, accuracy and versatility for small to medium size production runs. Colchester’s automation partner Olympus Technologies will be present to demonstrate their bespoke automation solutions in tandem with Colchester’s Storm VMCs, which are automation & Industry 4.0 ready.
