MACH MT to showcase eight DynaPath-controlled machinesThe MACH MDV 855 and MACH MDV 1160 production-oriented VMCs

Bristol-based MACH Machine Tools, part of the Vigilance Group, and a leading supplier of CNC and manual machine tools and machine shop equipment to UK and Irish component manufacturers, will be showcasing eight DynaPath-controlled machines on its stand at MACH 2024 (Hall 20, Stand 402).

The machine line-up, which includes the company’s recently-launched MACH MDV 855 and MACH MDV 1160 vertical machining centres, not only demonstrates the depth and breadth of MACH Machine Tools’ constantly evolving and improving product portfolio, but also the importance of this year’s show to the company’s marketing objectives and future growth ambitions.

MACH MTDave Andrew, managing director of the Vigilance Group, said: “We have booked our largest-ever MACH stand to showcase a wide cross-section of the different technologies we can now offer our customers. As well as our new MDV production-oriented vertical machining centres, we are also exhibiting an impressive selection of our toolroom mills and lathes and, if space allows, we will also be taking a MACH MDHS 65 high-speed machining centre along.”

Over the last 11 years MACH Machine Tools’ growth has been rapid. From initially supplying customers with its manual VS-1 turret-type milling machines when the company was first incorporated back in 2013, the company can now provide component and mould tool manufacturers with a comprehensive range of CNC milling machines and lathes, all equipped with the advanced and innovative DynaPath control system, as well as an impressive range of manual lathes, mills, grinders, drills and bandsaws.

Mr Andrew continued: “MACH 2024 provides a great shop window for us to showcase our technologies to visitors. Many of the machines being exhibited on our stand will be under power performing a range of innovative machining demonstrations designed to show-off their capabilities. The stand also includes a ‘Genius-type Bar’ facility which, using advanced CNC simulators, will enable visitors to test-out the DynaPath control system for themselves.”

Production-orientated VMCs

The MACH MDV 855 and MACH MDV 1160 production-oriented VMCs will take centre stage on the MACH Machine Tools’ stand. The two machines being exhibited are equipped with direct-drive 12,000rev/min BT40 spindles, 24-position swing-arm automatic tool changers (ATCs), large worktables (up to 1,200mm x 600mm on the MACH MDV 1160), and have 36m/min rapid rates on all axes. The MACH MDV 1160 will be showcased with a 4th-axis table for fast indexing.

MACH MT MDS 845MACH Machine Tools has a reputation in the market for supplying customers with high-quality, reliable and value-added toolroom mills and, at MACH 2024 the company will be showcasing three machines. Leading the line will be the compact MDS 845-8T ‘spider’ toolroom mill which is fast and flexible and features a 5.5kW/8,000rev/min direct-drive BT40 spindle and a generous-size 850 x 420mm worktable. The machine is also equipped with an integrated eight-position tool changer that increases its productivity and performance potential.

Alongside the MDS 845-8T will be a MACH MDS 900-4T, which features a 3.75kW 5,000rev/min spindle, a large 1,470 x 320mm worktable with 220kg maximum table load, and a four-position ATC. Completing the line-up of toolroom mills will be a MACH MDM 700 – a popular and proven machine with a 5,000rev/min spindle and a 1,244x 228mm worktable. Other CNC milling machines being exhibited include a MACH MDT-1 turret mill.

An 8in chuck MACH MDL 1600 flexible and powerful flat-bed lathe will also be in the spotlight at the show, which features 1,050mm distance between centres, a 7.5kW 3,500rev/min spindle, a manual tailstock and an automatic four-way toolpost.

MACH Machine Tools will also be displaying a diverse range of manual machines and toolroom equipment. These include a MACH VS-1 turret-type milling machine, a MACH L 1340 and a MACH L 1550 manual lathe, as well as MACH-branded bandsaws, belt linishers, double-ended grinders and pedestal drills.

Mr Andrew concluded: “We are pushing the boat out at MACH 2024 and our stand will demonstrate that we are ideally positioned, technologically and commercially, to meet customers’ CNC and manual machine tool and equipment needs. Our technologies help make manufacturers’ lives better – more productive, more efficient and more profitable — visit our stand and we will show you how.”
