Devon-based XYZ Machine Tools
, in partnership with Sheffield-based Ceratizit UK & Ireland
have opened the doors to their latest Demonstration and Training Centre. Located on the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham, the centre is strategically placed to support customers looking for the latest machine tool technologies.
The facility is equipped with a wide 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 five-axis machining centre.
Working with Ceratizit UK & Ireland, XYZ Machine Tools is inviting customers to visit the centre to investigate not only the machines, but also to develop machining strategies to help improve manufacturing efficiencies. It will also be used 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.
Nigel Atherton, XYZ Machine Tools managing director, said: “On the opening day, visitors from across the manufacturing sector descended on the centre to witness live demonstrations. The turn-out 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.”
Anyone wanting to visit the new centre should contact their local XYZ area sales manager or telephone 01823 674200 for an appointment.
