Ceratizit UK & Ireland’s new 3,600ft2 technical centre located on Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Park will officially open on 12th October.
A total of eight machine tools have been installed, including the simultaneous 5-axis UMC-5X machining centre from XYZ Machine Tools, a Mazak Integrex I250H multi-tasking machine and sliding head technology in the form of a SR-20JII B from Star Micronics GB.
All these machines will be available for demonstrations of Ceratizit’s extensive range of cutting tool and workholding systems. In addition, the applications team will be able to take customer’s components from drawing to finished part, with the entire process optimised for maximum productivity when taken back to their own premises.
Located at the heart of some of the most advanced manufacturing facilities in the UK, Ceratizit’s new technical centre will be a hub of learning for cutting tool technology. It will provide industry-focused seminars, individual customer process assessments, machining tests and applications training.
Tony Pennington, managing director, Ceratizit UK & Ireland, commented: “From our UK office located just a few minutes away we have had the capability to support customers with cutting trials for a few years now. This development will optimise that support with a dedicated facility with machinery that replicates what our customers have available in their own machine shops.”
With the opening of the new technical centre, along with the ability to draw on products from the four competency brands of Ceratizit, Komet, WNT and Klenk, the applications team at Ceratizit can continue to develop machining strategies with customers from a wide range of industries, such as aerospace, medical, automotive and oil and gas.
