Mills Open House — ‘a masterstroke’Mills CNC (, the exclusive distributor of Doosan machine tools in the UK and Ireland, reported that its recently held ‘Strokes of Genius . . . LIVE’ Open House was a huge success, with over 200 visitors in attendance.

Taking place at the company’s technology campus in Leamington Spa, the event showcased the latest Doosan machines to UK and Irish manufacturers, plus other recently introduced technology and service innovations.

Kevin Gilbert, managing director of Mills CNC, said: “Our Open House surpassed all expectations, and visitor numbers were much higher than anticipated.

Alongside significant machine tool sales during the two-day event, the number of serious sales leads and enquiries was also particularly encouraging, especially as a high percentage of these came from new customers visiting the campus for the first time.”

Highlights of the Open House included a number of new Doosan machine tools making their debuts, with pride of place going to the new Doosan Puma 2600SY Mk II — a 10in-chuck Y-axis sub-spindle turning centre that has replaced the popular Puma 2600SY Mk I.

Other technology highlights at the event included 16 challenging and innovative machining demonstrations — among them one involving a DNM 5700 vertical machining centre integrated with a Robojob automated workpiece loading/unloading system, plus two 5-axis machining demonstrations on a Doosan VC630 5AX and a Doosan DNM350 5AX.

Mr Gilbert added: “Our Doosan multi-tasking turning centres and multi-axis machining centres certainly proved popular with visitors, reflecting the growing demand among UK and Irish component manufacturers for high-productivity
machine tools.

"The high visitor numbers at the Open House are proof-positive that new, innovative and exciting technologies definitely capture the imagination of component manufacturers.”
