The big picture

The story started in 1942 in the Czech Republic with the manufacture of precision drilling machines right up to the present, producing a wide range of heavy-duty CNC multi-axis horizontal, vertical large machining centres and vertical turning lathes.

Since the beginning, the name Tos Kurim established its reputation as one of the world’s largest manufacturers of machine tools. The first steps towards automatic control of linear axes came in 1958 and in 1962 the first numerical controlled machine was manufactured. In 2005 Tos Kurim became part of the Alta Group which opened up the opportunities in world markets for exporting. Following a recent exclusive distribution agreement, TOS Kurim machines are now available in the UK and Northern Ireland from Axe & Status Machinery.

The latest restructuring of the Tos Kurim range has been consolidated to an extensive range of heavy-duty bed type and floor type vertical and horizontal CNC boring machine centres extending to 24,000mm X-axis travel.

The all new range of products was launched at the last year’s EMO Milan exhibition and received by many visitors with interest and enthusiasm resulting in serious potential enquiries from a number of international visitors.

The range comprises: FUT series table ram type horizontal universal machining centres; FU series floor ram type horizontal machining centre travelling column ram type; FUB series floor ram type heavy-duty machining centres; FRU series double column travelling gantry fixed bed machining centres; FRF series double column, fixed table travelling column machining centres; FRP series double column, fixed elevating bridge, travelling table machining centres; and FS series bed type machining centres.

The all new technology machines are offered with flexible specifications to suit customer requirements: travelling spindle or ram; rotary B-axis; choice of universal heads; and angular/universal indexing/universal continuous.

Expansion of production capability at Tos Kurim in 2010 involved integrating the manufacturing capacity of affiliate company CKD Blansko which enhanced its product portfolio and service and support offering significantly. The cooperation with CKD Blansko adds a new dimension to the range – heavy-duty CNC turning centres capable of turning diameters up to 16m diameter.

On 7th January 2016, Axe & Status Machinery was appointed sole exclusive distributor for the UK and Northern Ireland for the new Tos Kurim range of products. First line support is provided by the Bletchley, Milton Keynes-based company as well as installation, service and maintenance.

Axe & Status will be exhibiting at MACH 2016 in hall 5 on stand 5461.
