Star GB celebrates new facility with open house event

Leading sliding head lathe manufacturer Star GB is celebrating the opening of its new UK headquarters with a special open house event.

Running for three days from 5-7 October, the open house will give visitors the opportunity to see Star’s brand new facility first hand in addition to its comprehensive range of sliding head lathes. The spacious, purpose-built site, located in Derby alongside the Rolls-Royce factory on Raynesway, is easily accessible from the A52 and the M1 with dedicated parking.

Visitors will get the chance to view the all-new successor to Star’s flagship SR-32J machine, which has become a firm favourite with turned parts manufacturers across the UK. The SR-32JII will be unveiled for an early preview ahead of its 2017 release.

Also on display will be an array of Star’s most popular lathes, including the small diameter SB-12RG and SW-12RII; the larger SR-38B and ST-38 machines; and the SR-32J and SR-20RIV Type B. The Star team will be on hand with expert advice and insight, as well as selected partners to provide advice on ancillary equipment and supplies.

The event opens at 9.30am each day and closes at 6.00pm on the Wednesday and Thursday and 5pm on the Friday. Refreshments and lunches will be provided for all attendees
