Citizen 3-day Open House brings immediate saleCitizen Machinery UK’s (CMUK) three-day Open House last month immediately added a further 15 machines worth over £2.7 million to its record order book involving some 100 Cincom sliding-head and Miyano fixed-head turn-mill centres, with deliveries stretching into 2019.

Deputy managing director Darren Wilkins said: “Over 350 people came through our doors over the three days, with several bringing important future projects for us to investigate (www.citizenmachinery.co.uk).

“This influx of interest was from both the OEM and sub-contract sectors — in particular, oil and gas, aerospace and automotive companies. Our area sales engineers have a host of follow-ups and customer visits scheduled, which will doubtless create business well into the next year.”

Citizen’s patented Low Frequency Vibration (LFV) programmable chip-control machining technology was a major focus of attention, being included in seven out of every eight machines ordered.

From the demonstrations, visitors were able to appreciate how Citizen’s patented development of LFV is a fundamental part of a machine’s design, and that the reliable control of chip size cannot be achieved by simply adding a macro to the programming — something that Citizen investigated and rejected over a decade ago.

Mr Wilkins added: “Both new and existing customers were also showing considerable interest in the Cincom Superimposition operating control software, which enables simultaneous cutting with up to three tools on fixed-head two spindle twin-turret turn-mill centres.

"Demonstrations showed that the ability to remove material from both ends of a component significantly reduces cycle times.”

CMUK is also responsible for the Citizen and Miyano product ranges in Africa, France, Italy, the Middle East, Portugal and Spain.
