On stand 5658 the new ultra-heavyweight Colchester Magnum centre lathe available with 660mm and 800mm swing over bed options, centre distances up to 4,000mm and with spindle bore options up to 230mm will be on show. Colchester Magnum lathes have been designed to ensure that they are totally at ease with any heavy metal turning requirement and are capable of fast metal removal, allied to fine precision finishing.
600 UK will also showcase the newly redesigned Colchester Triumph centre lathe which now gives industrial operators increased productivity benefits with enhanced design features including flexible guarding and moveable, integral DRO with CSS offered as standard.
Another new product at MACH will be the Harrison Alpha XC combination CNC lathe which incorporates driven tooling and full C-axis interpolation to the high specification, simple to use, flatbed CNC Alpha lathe range. This enables operators to carry out secondary operations on one-off and small batch components including milling, drilling and tapping at the machine.
On the toolholding and workholding front, Pratt Burnerd International (stand 4501) will exhibit a full range of manual and power chucking solutions, demonstrating amongst others, large special manual chucks and the Gripfast combination power chuck. The Gripfast can be easily retrofitted to existing production CNC machines of whatever manufacture, ensuring operator downtime between jobs is minimised and productivity maximised.
A new addition for Pratt Burnerd International is the new Gripsafe chuck force measurement gripmeter which offers a reliable method to accurately measure and permanently record gripping forces being applied by a chuck under both static and dynamic conditions, which for all CNC turning jobshops, is a critical health and safety concern.
Following its successful education presence at MACH 2014, 600 UK will display lathes from Colchester and Harrison that are ideally suited for the education and training sectors (stand 4776). The bestselling training centre lathe, the Colchester Student, will be exhibited alongside the brand new Harrison EziTurn electronic lathe. The EziTurn has been developed to bridge the step up in skill levels required between manual and CNC turning when preparing engineering apprentices for working in industrial workshop environments.
To complete the range of new products from 600 UK, US-based Clausing Precision Machine Tools will make its European debut. Clausing will be exhibiting workshop equipment from its extensive catalogue of milling, drilling, sawing, grinding and large swing turning machines.
This, new to Europe, range of machine tools has already enjoyed success in North America, the Middle East and Australasia. The addition of the Clausing brand of non-turning machines reinforces 600 UK’s ‘one stop shop’ philosophy.
The addition of the Clausing range allows 600 UK to satisfy the requirements demanded by colleges, UTC’s, universities and industry for high quality machine tools.
Howard Bamforth, 600 UK sales director says: “Our plans are shaping up nicely for MACH 2016 with a mix of great new products from all our brands, alongside some well-known, established favourites. We truly believe that as designers and manufacturers of some of the best industrial and educational engineering products in the world, our MACH line-up ranks as one of the most innovative and exciting we’ve ever produced.”
