Ward CNC welcomes new innovations from EMOThe EMO 2 exhibition — held in Hanover at the end of September — proved a resounding success for Sheffield-based TW Ward CNC Machinery Ltd (www.wardcnc.com), as the machine tool specialist used the platform to introduce the latest innovations from its machine tool partners.

The company exclusively represents Axile, Hankook, Hartford, Hyundai-Wia, Pinacho, Soraluce, Takisawa Japan and Takisawa Taiwan in the UK, and each of these brands introduced a range of new technologies at the exhibition.

Ward CNC managing director Simon Whitworth, executive director Stephen Bodsworth and head of strategic accounts Stuart Lawson attended the show.

The Hyundai-Wia booth had no fewer than 10 machine tools, with multi-tasking and Y-axis turning centres, a selection of three- and five-axis machining centres and a horizontal machining centre with automation, — the HS6300+ PLS (pallet load system).

Mr Bodsworth said: “The focus of the Hyundai-Wia stand was not only the new machine tool innovations but also the new Hyundai-Wia ‘Smart System’ software and equipment-monitoring software.

The slogan on the stand was ‘Experience the New Technology’; on our return to the UK, we will be introducing the new Industry 4.0 platforms and their benefits to UK manufacturers.”

The Soraluce stand showcased a multitude of new technologies, including the DAS+ Dynamic Active Stability (elimination of chatter during machining) system. Another highlight was the DWS (Dynamic Workpiece Stability) system,
a portable component-mounted unit to remove chatter from fabricated/non-rigid workpieces.

Further innovations included a new five-axis milling head and the patented VSET clamping system, which provides time savings.

Hartford also had a number of new products at EMO, while five-axis machining and Industry 4.0 were the core focus of the Axile booth.

Automated production with zero down-time and the integration of Industry 4.0 technology was evident on Axile machines, with the ART system drawing attention at the show.

Meanwhile, for the production of smaller turned parts that demand the utmost in productivity and precision, Takisawa had two stands at EMO.

Be seen in all the right places!
