VERO DESIGNER – “THE NEW

STANDARD” SAY MANUFACTURES

Delegates on the first training courses for Vero

Software’s new specialist direct modelling

CAD for CAM system say it will become the

new industry standard.

As a stand-alone optional application for

its CAM portfolio, Designer enables users to

create new designs or modify existing

geometry from third party CAD systems.

Focusing on specific needs of machinist

programmers, it provides a quick, dynamic

editing and modelling environment, where

users sketch, drag, hold, push or twist, to

create and modify models…and it is not

dependent on having a series of parameters

that drive it, or a feature tree.

David Garner, Managing Director of CNC

Training Centre, says Designer is easier to use

than traditional methods. “It’s much smoother

Swift-Cut is thrilled to announce that we

have won the highly coveted 2018 Queens

Awards for International Trade. The Queens

Awards for Enterprise are awarded to

businesses who excel in one of four

categories: International Trade, Innovation,

Sustainable Development and Promoting

Opportunity. The International Trade

Award recognises the outstanding success

we have had since our mission to expand

globally began.

Since its inception in 2011, Swift-Cut

Automation has risen from a company

designing and manufacturing just one CNC

plasma cutting table in the UK to a global

success story – launching in 35 countries,

exporting over 80% of our business globally

and producing a range of highly sought after,

extremely efficient cutting machinery with

an enviable reputation for innovation,

affordability and quality.

This is a recognition of the highest order

from the Prime Minister and the Queen,

proving that Swift-Cut has made remarkable

progress internationally, representing UK

manufacturing on a global scale and

demonstrating the very best of British design

and workmanship.

and far less clunky. I’d been looking for a

good modelling system for some time…but I

don’t need to look any further now. This is the

best way forward and I believe it’ll become the

new standard way of doing things.”

Vero Applications Engineer Ben Miller,

who is delivering the first courses, says they

cover functionality in all three Designer

licenses, from Essential to Advanced, and are

aimed at getting users into the mindset of

direct modelling.

“Delegates will be able to prepare and

produce models much faster and easier than

in a traditional history-based modelling

system.”

Ben Miller states they are expecting to

provide additional training courses in the

coming months, following the considerable

interest shown at the recent MACH

exhibition. “Visitors to our stand were

particularly impressed with Designer’s

ability to read native CAD data, clean up

any poor geometry, close gaps, stitch it

into a solid, and then make modifications

that are important to the CAM process,

such as the suppression of features, or the

modification of draft angles.”

SWIFT-CUT AUTOMATION WINS

QUEEN’S AWARD FOR ENTERPRISE

Swift Cut’s International Global

Development Director Neil Smith is

understandably delighted at the recognition.

He said, “We are thrilled that our international

growth and success has been recognised by the

Queens Award, arguably the most prestigious

business award in the UK and a testament to

our product, our team and our vision.”

TIGHTENS ITS

GRIP

Three years ago, Industrial Tooling Corporation

(ITC) made a strategic decision to become the UK

agent for the BIG KAISER brand of precision

tooling. Since signing that agreement, sales of the

BIG KAISER product lines have more than trebled

in the UK.

The UK has rapidly become the 5th largest

European market for BIG KAISER and

establishing this market position in such a short

period of time is credit to the dedication and

professionalism of the ITC sales network and the

quality of the Swiss manufactured brand.

Prior to the merging of KAISER and Big

Daishowa in 2015, the KAISER brand was sold in

the UK by KAISER UK, a dedicated subsidiary

that closed in 2008. Simultaneously, the Big

Daishowa brand was sold via machine tool

manufacturers as a supplement to existing

product lines and sales channels. Following the

merger, BIG KAISER re-evaluated its position and

recognised the need to work in synergy with an

OEM with a successful high-quality brand that

targeted the ‘entire’ industry as opposed to a niche

aspect of the machine tool industry.

Discussing the founding of the relationship

with ITC and how the partnership has flourished

over the last three years, Giampaolo Roccatello,

BIG KAISER Head of Sales for Southern Europe

says: “When we wanted to target growth in the

UK, we spoke with numerous companies at

MACH 2014. It was very important that we found

a partner that would compliment, rather than

conflict with our brand. We spoke with ITC and

found they were very focused, passionate and

technically competent and this fitted our

philosophy perfectly.”

“Furthermore, we wanted to work exclusively

with a competence partner that would work sideby-side

with us. ITC has fully embraced our

brand, culture and technology and their technical

expertise has really catapulted our brand in the

UK. We had an ambition to reach sales of £1m in

the UK by 2020; this target will be reached well

before this date. We set goals every year.

However, we can never make any concrete longterm

prediction as the market is always

changing.”

ALITECH RACES TO SUCCESS WITH ITC

As a subcontract motorsport machine shop,

Alitech Precision Ltd is a company that is

rapidly evolving and this is credit to its

aggressive investment programme,

enthusiasm and love for all things

motorsport.

Since its inception little over three years

ago, the Silverstone Company has purchased

three HAAS machining centres, OPEN

MIND CAM software, a simultaneous 5-axis

Spinner machining centre and cutting tools

from Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC).

Like any subcontract business in its infancy,

the team at Alitech Precision has acquired its

machine tools and peripheral equipment

based on expert advice, trial and error,

conferring with customers and competitors

alike and personal experiences.

It is these factors among others that led

the Northamptonshire business to

implement hyperMILL CAM software, the

Spinner U-620 5-axis machine and solid

carbide cutting tools from ITC. Whilst the

‘design to manufacture’ subcontractor

utilises cutting tools from a variety of

suppliers, it is Tamworth based ITC that has

stood out for special tools and end mills for

machining steel components.

The relationship between Alitech and ITC

started just over 18 months ago when the

Alitech team encountered tool life and

performance issues with an existing tooling

vendor when machining steel. The Alitech

engineers were exercising a ‘trial and error’

process that was proving fruitless. Alitech

picked up the phone to ITC and local ITC

engineer Mr Gary Bambrick was

immediately on-hand to advise.

Despite the company name being a major

clue to the fact that Alitech primarily

undertakes aluminium machining, the

Motorsport Valley subby frequently

produces towing eyes for race cars and

bonding brackets for CFRP from EN24 steel.

Commenting upon the intervention of ITC,

Alitech Precision Senior 5-axis Programmer,

Mr Charlie Watts says: “The ITC engineer

came in and trialled the four flute 4081 Cyber

Series of solid carbide end mills. The results

were remarkable. After undertaking so many

trials with a multitude of cutting tool

suppliers, we were always going to be a little

sceptical of any tooling engineer that came

through the door. However, Gary Bambrick

offered a level of expertise and advice that

included intuitively optimising the speed

and feed parameters of the 4081 Series. This

delivered really impressive results.”

Since the initial trial success, Alitech has

now widely implemented the ITC 4081 Series

for steel jobs and titanium parts, purchasing

4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16 and 20mm diameter end

mills.

With regard to machining performance on

aluminium, Alitech is more than happy with

its existing vendors. However, when it came

to the profile machining of deep port pockets,

it was ITC that stepped up to the challenge

with its industry leading lollipop cutters. The

majority of projects undertaken by Alitech

involve the complex simultaneous 5-axis

machining of parts such as billet inlet

manifolds, valve seats, inlet port heads, billet

turbo manifolds and much more. Reaching

deep into ports is a complex challenge for the

machine tool kinematics, the CAM software,

the cutting tools and toolholding. At the

sharp edge is the ITC 4101 Series of lollipop

end mills that permit Alitech to reach

surfaces around corners and deep inside

manifold ports.

BEST-IN-CLASS RESULTS

Tests on the new nesting engine unveiled in

Alphacam 2018 R2 show a 17 per cent

improvement in material yield.

Using proprietary technology to deliver

what Brand Manager Hector Henry says are

“best-in-class geometry,” toolpath optimisation

and part handling, the nesting engine also

provides faster calculation times, along with

improved feedback and graphics.

And he says the overall theme of the latest

release is to save time and improve

productivity.

Parametric Rules have now been migrated

to C# and have an enhanced GUI and

functionality, allowing for greater control,

improved UX and simpler, more streamlined,

logic statements, which he says has improved

productivity and reliability.

The Face Milling Cycle has been enhanced,

and is now part of Alphacam’s Core

Functionality, creating intelligent toolpaths,

allowing user to face (surface) mill irregular and

multiple geometries. “This improves

productivity, as the user doesn’t need to create

several operations to achieve the same result.”

Productivity has also been improved

through the new Order by Intersecting

Geometry function which saves significant time

when ordering the sequence of a complex job. It

works by letting the user select a previously

created geometry to define the order of

geometries or toolpaths, based on those which

intersect the selected geometry first.

The Parametric Sketcher is now

considerably more powerful, thanks to an

updated UI, meaning the window can be

resized. “This provides greater visibility over

the Parameters and Actions list, which will be

essential for managing complex projects.” There

are also improvements to the Sketcher’s

geometry creation tools, for creating fillets and

chamfers as part of the Geometry creation tool

set. This improves productivity as it does away

with the need to calculate those points.

Enhancements to Alphacam’s dimensioning

system provide greater clarity when printing

and presenting information. User-defined

suffixes for both the primary and alternate units

– as well as a scale factor – mean that two

separate values can now be displayed.

Importing CAD models has been updated

through the support of SolidWorks

configurations. “Alphacam now has a new

interface for users to select which configuration

of an assembly to import, without the need to

ascertain that the last version saved in

SolidWorks matches the one they want,” says

Hector Henry.

TECHNI-GRIND CAPITALISES ON

WALTER’S VISION

Techni-Grind (Preston), one of the leading

suppliers of precision tool regrinding services

to the aerospace industry, has installed its

sixth Walter high specification CNC tool and

cutter grinder to increase capacity levels – a

Helitronic Vision 400L with integrated robot

handling and wheel changer.

The new machine not only extends the

length of tooling that can be processed - to 420

mm long - but its automated handling and

wheel changing capability will also, says

Techni-Grind’s Manager Michael Bell,

“further extend our ability to confidently run

the Vision 400L unmanned and in a lights-out

mode, thus further increasing our

productivity levels”.

Capable of processing tools up to 315 mm

diameter and 420 mm long, and weighing up

to 50 kgs, the Vision 400L has travels in X, Y

and Z axes of 500 mm, 350 mm and 700 mm,

respectively. Rapid traverse rates are up to 50

m/min, and the machine boasts linear and

radial resolutions of 0.0001 mm and

0.0001deg, respectively.

Grinding wheels up to 254 mm diameter

can be accommodated within the eightstation

wheel changer, and grinding spindle

speed is up to 10,500 revs/min.

The Vision 400L joins the company’s

existing portfolio of Walter tool grinders and

tool measuring machines that have been

progressively installed - a Classic Power, a

Power, a Power Regrinder and two Helitronic

Visions (one with robot loading), plus a

Helicheck Basic tool measuring machine.

Now, with the new machine meaning that

two of the company’s Visions are equipped

with robot loader and pallet-held tools, these

automation devices “are key to our often nonstop

24-hour running which, of course,

contributes greatly to the production

efficiencies we attain”, says Managing

Director David Higham.

ROBOTICS

FEEDING THE MACHINE

When manufacturers in low-cost economies

such as the Far East and Eastern Europe first

began to threaten the market share of machine

shops in the west, many looked to automation in

the hope that it would level the playing field.

Certainly, the rationale makes sense: eliminating

the labour cost negates the sole advantage of

competitors able to leverage a low-cost

workforce. However, how many UK machine

shops have actually adopted such a strategy?

Among those able to raise their hand is

Rousant Sherwood Manufacturing (RSM), a

family-owned company based at Henley-on-

Thames that specialises in the subcontract

manufacture of complex machined components

for industries such as medical, aerospace and oil

and gas.

RSM has 11 Nakamura-Tome multi-axis,

multi-turret, twin-spindle turn-mill centres,

complemented by the latest 13-axis sliding-head

turning and four-axis milling capability. As a

result, the company has minimised both cycle

times and the number of set-ups required.

However, faced with an increasingly

competitive global marketplace, the 35-

employee company wanted to make further

efficiency gains, deciding to focus its attention

on automation.

Surveying the entire range of industrial

robots available, RSM concluded that six-axis

Universal Robots from RARUK Automation

were the ideal match for its machine-tending

requirements, largely due to their ease-ofprogramming,

competitive price and

collaborative operating capabilities.

Collaborative robots (‘cobots’) use sensor

technology (programmed with a predetermined

force) to stop safely in the event of

human contact. As a result, around 80% of the

thousands of Universal Robots in use

worldwide operate with no safety guarding

(after risk assessment).

“The ability to use the robots unguarded was

something that appealed, as was ease-ofprogramming,”

states general manager Robin

Salter. “Programming is very intuitive; it can

take as little as 10 minutes to program one of our

robots for a new part. What’s more, we recently

trained one of our apprentices and he picked it

up in an hour.”

In total, RSM has invested in five UR5 (5kg

payload) and two UR10 (10kg) Universal

Robots. The robots are busy tending the

company’s 14 CNC machine tools, and are

relocated to different machines in line with

customer/contract demands. One of the UR10

robots is currently serving a Nakamura-Tome

Super NTJX multi-tasking turn-mill centre on a

24-7 basis. The robot loads square billets of

aluminium into the machine, where they are

turned into aerospace components as part of a

40-minute cycle.

“Just to be clear, we have not invested in

robots to save on headcount, we’ve done it to

win contracts,” says Robin Salter. “We could

never have tendered for this job without

automation. Using a robot makes us profitable

on work where we wouldn’t normally be able to

compete.”

To aid automated machining even further,

investing in the latest workholding solutions can

make a genuine difference. Indeed, some

automation systems combine robots with vices,

such as the Lang Robo-Trex automatic handling

system from Thame Workholding. Robo-Trex

operates a machining centre from an automation

trolley, which serves as a storage medium for

the vices. Depending on the component size, the

trolley can store up to 42 vices. Robo-Trex is

optionally available with up to four trolleys,

which means that the storage capacity can be

increased to up to 168 vices.

The patented vertical positioning of the vices

ensures maximum space utilisation and

guarantees best accessibility when being picked

up the robot. Furthermore, external pre-loading

of the automation trolleys allows Robo-Trex

Automation to be re-equipped within seconds.

Continuing the machining centre theme,

recently introduced by 1st MTA is a new zeropoint

clamping system from V-Tech. For

clamping workpieces on CNC machining

centres, this pneumatic quick-change system

features 24kN retraction of the clamping pin in

each receiver, and a positioning accuracy of

better than 5µm.

Mechanical vices, clamping chucks and bars,

and special workholding fixtures, can be

accommodated in the receivers, while

positioning slots allow precise 90° indexing. The

self-clamping mechanism, which uses highpower

springs to secure the workpiece and

fixture, ensures that the force is still applied after

the air has been disconnected. Pneumatic power

is only required again for release. Clamping

bases are available to hold one, two, four or six

receivers, which are 135mm in diameter but

only 41mm high, so little Z-axis travel is lost.

Elsewhere, now added to the portfolio of

Leader Chuck Systems is the Piranha Clamp

range of centring vices. The Swiss-manufactured

vices replace the usual dovetail guides found on

many vices with parallel twin-cylindrical jaw

guides that are said to offer better precision and

clamping force.

Designed to act much like a hydraulic press,

the hardened and coated spindle guides provide

an increased surface area for load distribution,

while the drive spindle has been tested to

withstand pressures above 1300 Nm². This

capability supports high-pressure workpiece

clamping with a minimal depth of just 3 mm, so

material waste is kept to a minimum.

A built-in zero-point clamping system on the

base of the Piranha Clamp provides the interface

with the machine tool’s work table and achieves

a repeatable loading accuracy of 0.01mm.

However, the quick-change location system can

be specified to fit any zero-point design, with

adapter plates making the vices totally

interchangeable.

Of course, not all workholding devices rely

on mechanical gripping force to secure

components. Leader, for example, now offers

freeze clamping plates from AMCC, which the

company says are an excellent alternative to

magnetic fixtures when securing non-metallic

and non-magnetic components. At the MACH

exhibition in April, visitors were able to see the

plates in action so they could fully appreciate the

holding strength available with ice.

For those required to hold thin-walled or

fragile ferrous parts, the latest Magnos magnetic

chucks from Schunk are designed to offer lowdeformation

workpiece clamping, accessibility

and fast workpiece changeovers. To improve

ease of operation, the company has recently

released Magnos square pole plates equipped

with a status display by default. The display

shows the current clamping status continuously,

even when the magnetic chuck has been

disconnected from the control and is in pallet

storage with a clamped workpiece, for instance.

Schunk is also launching a modular control

unit that gives users a high degree of flexibility

and operating comfort. The Magnos KEH Plus is

suitable for all Schunk square and radial pole

plates. One, two, four or eight magnetic chucks

can be actuated at the same time, depending on

the base version.

To ensure process reliability in automated

applications, users can monitor each individual

magnetic chuck, an action that is facilitated by

transmitting the individual clamping state via a

PLC interface to the system control.

MAZAK HOSTS NEW AUTOMATION EVENT

AutomatiON, a new event designed to

encourage machine users to ‘switch on’ to the

benefits of automation, has been scheduled for

June at Mazak’s European headquarters in

Worcester.

The event, which will include automation

solutions from a range of providers, including

Mazak, FANUC, RoboJob, Indunorm,

Hydrafeed and Iemca, is designed to highlight

the wide range of automation options available

to machine users across Europe and has been

organised by Sadik Atay, European Strategic

Development Director, and Mike Sykes,

Automation Systems Manager at Mazak.

AutomatiON, runs from 19th to the 21st of

June 2018, and will feature eight different

automation solutions that can be easily utilised

to increase productivity and profitability.

Robot machine-tending solutions on display

will include the QUICK TURN 250MY TA-

12/200, a ‘plug and play’ turning centre and

Sawyer completes jobs quickly and accurately,

works safely alongside co-workers and is an

integral part of the workforce. However,

Sawyer is not your average employee — he is a

robot. Here, Jonathan Wilkins, marketing

director at obsolete industrial parts supplier, EU

Automation, explains how advances in

technology are changing the way that humans

interact with robots.

There are now technologies that allow

humans to work side by side with robots,

known as collaborative robots, or cobots for

short. But, what makes them collaborative?

Benefits

“Collaborative robot is a verb, not a noun. The

collaboration is dependent on what the robot is

doing, not the robot itself,” explained Pat

Davison, director of standards for the Robotic

Industry Association (RIA). A collaborative

robot is defined by the type of task it performs

and the space where it operates.

Cobots are becoming more popular in

factories as they are affordable, adaptable and

easy to install. Cobots also support human

workers by completing the heavy lifting and

repetitive jobs that can cause human strain. This

gives human workers more time to complete

creative and intricate work.

robot which has been

developed by Mazak and

RoboJob, using a FANUC M-

10iA robot controlled by

Mazak’s SmoothG CNC. In

addition, FANUC will also be

demonstrating its collaborative

robot capabilities, in

partnership with a QUICK

TURN 250MSY.

One of the highlights of the

show is likely to be the

VARIAXIS i-300 AWC, an

integrated 5-axis automation

cell developed for lights-out

machining of complex

workpieces in high mix, low volume

production. The machine has a compact

footprint and a field expandable magazine that

can hold up to 505 tools and is capable of

machining applications up to Ø350mm x

THE FUTURE OF COLLABORATION

Safety

A key consideration for manufacturers is how

to keep workers safe. Cobots have features that

prevent them from injuring humans when in

operation, such as rounded and soft surfaces to

reduce the risk of injury if a human gets too

close to the machine. They are also fitted with

sensors that stop the machine if a human gets

too close.

Manufactures must also comply with

regulations, such as ISO 10218-2:2011, that

control how facilities integrate robotics into the

assembly line to ensure all workers are kept

safe.

The future

Cobots have the potential to radically change

the manufacturing sector. However, there are

still some skills that a robot has not been able to

perfect. A robot may be able to complete a

repetitive task with complete accuracy, but it is

not as agile as a human. Cobots lack dexterity

and therefore cannot complete more intricate

tasks that humans can.

However, in comparison to traditional

industrial robots, cobots are more capable and

can adapt more easily to the requirements of the

facility. In future, advancements in machine

learning and artificial intelligence could further

increase their capabilities.

Unlike older, industrial robots, cobots have

design features to keep workers safe. Facilities

managers must combine the machine strength

and precision of robots like Sawyer, with

human ability to see, think and adapt for the

perfect factory. So, if you find out you’ll be

working next to a robot like Sawyer, you can

sleep well knowing that he will be a safe,

supportive and efficient colleague.

315mm with a maximum weight of 60kg.

Continuing with automation in the 5-axis

category, the event also features the VARIAXIS

j-600/5X with an ultra-compact Indumatik®

Toolchanger storing 250 tools. This combination

offers a high-performance yet cost-effective

solution to reduce set up time and unit cost for

complex workpieces.

Also on display will be Mazak’s MPP (Multi

Pallet Pool) which is being demonstrated with

an HCN 4000 horizontal machining centre. The

MPP, specifically designed for lights-out

running, offers high-speed pallet transfer and

an economic footprint – up to 40% smaller than

a comparable PALLETECH system – and is

controlled using the SmoothG CNC, which is

equipped with Mazak’s SMOOTH MPP

software application.

For automotive manufacturers and

subcontractors working with high-volume,

large lot production, the MULTIPLEX W-200Y

+ GL-100 combines a twin-spindle, two-turret

machine with a superfast gantry loader for

ultimate productivity. The GL robot features a

new rack and pinion drive system boasting

rapid rates of 75/160 m/min in the A/B axis,

yielding up to 25 per cent reduction in

load/unload time.

Barfeed solutions will be represented by the

Iemca BOSS, an automatic barfeeder capable of

loading bar lengths from one to six metres. The

BOSS bar feeder has bar change times as low as

18 seconds which reduces headstock idle times

and increases lathe productivity.

Richard Smith, European Group Managing

Director at Yamazaki Mazak, commented: “We

firmly believe that further automation is vital if

machine users are to continue to improve their

productivity and enhance their

competitiveness. This is a European event that

is designed to encourage machine users to

switch on to the potential of automation

solutions, because even the smallest machine

shop can benefit from a simple robot machinetending

solution. The automation solutions on

display from Mazak and our partner companies

offer best-in-class productivity solutions and I

would urge all machine users to put this date in

their calendar.”

ROBOTICS

HOW ZOOMORPHISM CAN TEACH US TO MAKE

BETTER ROBOTS

Zoomorphism is the literary term used to describe the attribution of

animal characteristics to inanimate objects. But, have you ever considered

its potential to change the way humans innovate in the robotic sciences?

Here, Jonathan Wilkins, marketing director at obsolete equipment

supplier EU Automation, explains how zoomorphism can teach us to

make better industrial robots.

The nation was touched when the groundbreaking BBC

documentary, Spy in the Wild broadcast a group of Indian langur

monkeys mourning the apparent death of a baby robot monkey that

they had accepted into their group. The robot monkey was filming the

goings-on of the group when it fell from a height and was taken out of

action. As it lay still, a hush spread through the group and, one by one,

the monkeys began to hug and console each other in a show of grief.

This is a touching story that helped scientists learn about group

behaviour in a new and novel way and it also demonstrates how

engineers can create a robot so natural in its movements and mannerisms

that a group of relatively intelligent animals

could not tell it apart from their own.

While humans are yet to overcome the same

uncanny valley for human androids, there is a

lot we can learn from the development of robots

that exhibit animal characteristics. Three areas

that are particularly interesting are grippers,

limbs and artificial intelligence software.

One of the biggest barriers to the adoption of

industrial robots in picking and packing lines

has been the use of adequate grippers that can

pick objects of varying size, shape and weight

quickly and accurately without damaging or

deforming the product.

This is especially important in the food and

beverage sector, such as supermarket

fulfilment centres, where soft hand-like

grippers with fingers covered in tiny suckers

are used to pick and pack items of food such as

heads of lettuce without damaging the product.

At the same time, the grippers are durable

enough to handle glass bottles and heavier

metal cans of soup continuously.

Although there is a tendency to create robots

after our own image, why create robots with

human limitations? Modelling the limb

movements of robots after those of arthropods,

insects and four-legged mammals, such as dogs

and cheetahs, offers engineers the ability to

create robots that can traverse rough terrain

quickly and efficiently, recovering more easily

from falls and setbacks.

While this is particularly useful for military

applications, it also offers opportunities for

industrial use in factories and plants where

such robots could provide use in a more diverse

range of applications, replacing the need for

single-use robots such as automated guided

vehicles (AGVs), cranes and forklifts.

By learning the right lessons and embracing

what the natural world offers, engineers can go

beyond the ordinary and create robots that

illicit a truly emotional response.

FANUC LAUNCHES LIGHTWEIGHT ROBOT FOR

SMALL-TO-MEDIUM PAINT APPLICATIONS

FANUC UK has extended its family of paint

robots with the launch of the light-weight P-

40iA intelligent robotic arm.

The latest addition to the range is ideally

suited to a wide variety of painting and coating

applications, and has a maximum payload and

reach of 5kg and 1300mm respectively.

As with all FANUC robots, the P-40iA is

manufactured from aluminium, and is designed

to seamlessly integrate into an end-user’s paint

or power system. Benefiting from the same wrist

design as the highly popular FANUC Paint

Mate 200iA, the P-40iA provides end-users with

the reliability and proven technology

synonymous with all FANUC products. It can

also easily adapt to small lot sizes and other

modifications.

The robot is IP67-rated to adequately protect

the internal workings of the arm from any

residual paint or coating material, as well as

dust and oil mist from the factory working

environment. The purged and pressurised arm

of the P-40iA is also FM and ATEX Class Div. 1

approved, while the robot benefits from an

enclosed riser for cable connections and the

purge flow switch.

The inherent versatility of the P-40iA is

further enhanced by the model’s slim arm,

lightweight design, and various mounting

positions, including pedestal, wall, angle and

invert. As such, it is the ideal choice for

operating environments in which space is at a

premium.

The robot is also equipped with FANUC’s

new R-30iB Compact Plus Control, complete

with the iPendant Touch – a lightweight

ergonomic control panel with a touchscreen

graphical user interface (GUI). Employing R-

30iB base hardware, first-time users can create a

program and execute it in just 30 minutes. The

control panel also offers a multi-window display

for fast access to key information, as well as any

in-process modifications to the program. 4D

graphics are also available, to bring tool frame

settings, safety zones and robot paths to life.

Andy Armstrong, Sales and Marketing

Manager at FANUC UK, comments: “Painting

and coating applications have long been

undertaken using automated technologies,

given the time and cost-savings this can

generate for end-users. However, many smaller

manufacturers – or those with limited floor

space – have often been excluded from using

automated paint and coating solutions due the

lack of compact technology available on the

market.

“Given the versatile mounting options and

compact arm design, the P-40iA will go a long

way towards opening up automated painting

and coating applications to those manufacturers

who are tight on space. Crucially, despite its

compact footprint, the P-40iA offers the same

level of robustness, quality and ease-of-use that

operators have come to expect from a FANUC

robot.”

CITIZEN BREAKS SALES RECORDS

Citizen Machinery UK (CMUK) left MACH

2018 exhibition on a high with 46 machine

orders worth over £6.3 million directly linked

to the show of which 18 were confirmed and

concluded during the week and a further 28

pending final specification agreement,

application discussions or financial approval.

Said Managing Director Edward James:

“This was an important endorsement to the

activities of the new management team and

especially rewarding to the effort put in by

everyone in the company to achieve record

exhibition sales at a UK event.”

He then recollected how this rolls on from

the new team’s success in 2017. He said: “We

achieved a record year in sales, the first

quarter of 2018 set a further standard and the

Japanese recognition of the business strategy

has been rubber stamped with the setting up

of our £2 million new CMUK facility with 600

m2 showroom in the West Midlands. This is

in addition to our headquarters in Bushey,

Watford.”

Important in the new order placements

were totally new customers to the Citizen

Over 3000 visitors to its stand at MACH plus

hundreds of enquiries and 20 machine tool

orders taken at the Show, put Mills streets

ahead of the competition.

Mills CNC, the exclusive distributor of

Doosan machine tools in the UK and Ireland,

has announced that its attendance at MACH

2018 was a ‘tremendous success’ and,

according to Managing Director, Kevin Gilbert,

“was the best MACH Show in the company’s

history.”

Mills CNC exhibited 16 Doosan machines

on its stand at MACH. Many of the machines,

including the Doosan DVF 5000 (5-axis

machining centre), the Doosan NHP 4000

(horizontal machining centre) and the Doosan

V8300M were new models making their UK

debuts at the Show.

In addition to new machines the company

also showcased a number of its popular, bestselling

Lynx and Puma lathes and DNM

vertical machining centres at the event.

Mills, as always, invested heavily in its

presence at MACH.

As well as having one of the largest stands

Cincom sliding head and Miyano fixed head

technology. Said Deputy Managing Director

Darren Wilkins: “Of orders placed so far

from the show or are under final discussions,

14 involved totally new customers. I also

want to endorse the reaction to our patented

Low Frequency Vibration (LFV) technology

demonstrated on Cincom L20 and L12

machines plus the first introduction to the

Miyano range through the BNA-42GTYLFV.

In total, 18 orders were taken at the show for

LFV machines worth some £1.9 million.”

Mr Wilkins followed on by explaining

how ‘Citizen’s Finance’ has proven to be

such a vital contributor to the show’s success

helping customers justify their planned

investment. He said: “Securing competitive

funding and providing a professional service

for something considered as a challenging

subject by many has further strengthened the

confidence in the Citizen and Miyano

brands.”

CMUK sales, application and finance

teams are running flat out following up each

positive enquiry, confirmations and intended

order placements while helping with internal

justification and machining cycle

applications of some customers. He said:

“The arrangement and confirmation of any

finance arrangements can be quite involved

but the level of support we are giving will

lead to further significant order placements

over the coming weeks.”

described as ‘an eye-catching and thoughtprovoking

“themed” stand’ that impressed

visitors and customers alike.

Says Tony Dale, Mills CNC’s Technical

Director:

“We were delighted with visitor and

customer reaction to the stand and, despite the

new location of the MACH exhibition at the

NEC, our stand drew in the crowds.”

At this year’s MACH event, Mills surpassed

its own high expectations and welcomed over

3000 visitors onto its stand. The company also

reported that hundreds of ‘serious’ enquiries

were generated at MACH and that 20 machine

tool orders were also taken.

www.millscnc.co.uk

ACADEMY WAS A

STAR ATTRACTION

The CNC Training Academy, the

independently operated training division of

Mills CNC, has announced that its

attendance at MACH 2018 was an unrivalled

success.

The company has reported that over the

five days in excess of 300 serious enquiries

were taken by the Academy for its range of

CNC Programmer and Operator training

courses and its recently-introduced Predator

Software machine tool monitoring and shop

floor control technologies.

Says CNC Training Academy Manager,

Jeff Hart:

“We were busy from day one right

through to the last day of the Show.

“Particularly encouraging and worthy of

special mention was the positive reaction by

visitors to our Predator Software solutions.

“Although we only signed the deal with

US-based Predator Software Inc. to become

their main UK and Irish distributor in late

December last year, we were bowled over by

the response from manufacturers attending

MACH who wanted to find out more about

how Predator solutions could improve their

productivity and performance.”

To help convey the unique strengths and

sophistication of Predator solutions, CNC

Training Academy Manager, Jeff Hart, ably

supported by Mr Jim Abbassian (President of

Predator Software Inc.) and Mr Brian Ross

(Director of Sales at Predator Software Inc.).

ran a number of planned and impromptu

information and awareness presentations

from the CNC Training Academy stand.

In total the CNC Training Academy took

over 140 enquiries for Predator solutions

during the MACH Show.

The CNC Training Academy is actively

following up the leads and enquiries taken at

MACH and, with demand for its services

being so high, will soon be announcing a

number of new appointments to its team of

trainers.

DIVERSITY DRAWS THE CROWDS AT

MACH 2018 FOR FLOYD

The 2018 MACH exhibition was a roaring

success for Floyd Automatic with the Baldock

based sliding head tooling experts claiming that

it was the diversity of its collets, guide bushes,

indexable tooling ranges and the application

expertise that sent small turned parts

manufacturers directly to the distinctive orange

stand.

The extensive turning lines from Applitec

and the sheer diversity of its portfolio were

certainly points of note. Providing his feedback

on yet another successful MACH exhibition,

Floyd Automatic Tooling Managing Director,

Mr Richard Floyd said: “We generated more

enquiries at MACH 2018 than at many of the

previous events and what stood-out for us was

the high enquiry level from both new customers

and overseas clients too.

The high level of new enquiries is partially

down to more subcontractors embracing the

benefits of sliding head technology whilst the

overseas lead generation can be largely

attributed to language barriers and a reluctance

to engage in technical dialogue when English

From the perspective of promoting new

product lines and meeting the industry, MACH

2018 was a major success for Guhring. The

Birmingham cutting tool manufacturer yielded

lead generation that surpassed previous

exhibitions with a high level of new business

contacts collected. From a personnel

perspective, MACH 2018 was the swansong

exhibition for longstanding Managing Director

Mike Dinsdale.

Mike Dinsdale has spent the last 39 years

serving Guhring and the wider industry with

distinction. On the penultimate day of the

show, the MTA recognised this achievement by

presenting Mike with a cake on the Guhring

stand that said ‘with congratulations and

thanks from the industry’. Presented by MTA

President Geoff Bryant, who has also recently

retired from Citizen, the presentation was an

emotional occasion filled with tales of days

gone by.

From a product perspective, the Guhring

stand was filled with new products that were

globally launched at EMO in 2017, many seen in

the UK for the first time. Commenting on the

show, Guhring National Sales Manager, Mr

isn’t your first language.”

“We also invested in the Pokem technology

at MACH with eight contact points that enabled

us to identify what product lines generated the

greater interest at the show.”

From the Pokem technology utilised at

MACH, Floyd Automatic noted a high level of

interest in the new Masa Microconic sub spindle

collets. Precise and stable clamping of small

workpieces in the sub-spindles of sliding head

machines has long been an issue for turned part

manufacturers; this is now solved by the

revolutionary precision workholding system.

The Microconic over-grip collet system

consists of a cartridge and precision collet and

the over-grip collet fits inside a cartridge and is

accurately adjusted before it is fitted directly

into the existing collet sleeve with no machine

adaptations required. The patented over-grip

collets can open up to 4mm larger than the

clamping diameter and also incorporate an

ejection guide sleeve blank. This helps the end

user to solve the difficulty of ejecting parts from

the collets after machining. For manufacturers

of high-precision parts in the connector,

medical and electronics sector, the Microconic

over-grip collet system was great find.

Floyd Automatic is renowned for the

unfathomable depth of its product lines, so, if

you didn’t make it to MACH 2018 please

contact Floyd Automatic for further details.

the 2016 event. With a stand more than 20%

larger than in 2016, the gripping systems and

clamping technology specialist received a high

level of interest in a complete range of product

lines.

SCHUNK used MACH as an opportunity to

hold a special ceremony on its Stand to

celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary in the

UK. Since entering the UK and Irish market 20

years ago SCHUNK Intec Ltd, has earned a

reputation as a technology leader and

innovator; gaining market recognition,

continuous growth and adding value to the

manufacturing industry through its

revolutionary products and services. At

MACH, established product lines won plaudits

and generated a high level of enquiries;

however, it was new technology like the new

VERO-S Aviation stationary clamping system

that really sparked the interest of MACH

visitors.

Making its MACH debut, the VERO-S

Aviation stationary clamping system is a

pneumatically actuated zero-point clamping

system developed for the direct clamping of

structural components in the aerospace

industry.

Also making its MACH debut and exciting

the crowds was the new Co-act (collaborative

actuator). As part of SCHUNK’s gripping

system program for safe human-robot

collaboration; the world's first intelligent

gripping module for human/robot

collaboration was certainly a central focal point

at MACH. The new Co-act permits adjustments

to the gripping process to be made in real-time

using diverse sensor systems.

A stand out solution on the SCHUNK stand

at MACH was the ‘pick and place’ unit that

demonstrated the company’s competence

leadership in the field of automation.

Highlighting how SCHUNK is a leading

automation solution provider, the enclosed

automation system certainly drew the attention

of stand visitors.

NEDERMAN

DEBUT PROVES A

HUGE SUCCESS

As one of the world leading suppliers and

developers of environmental technology

solutions for the manufacturing sector, the

debut appearance at MACH 2018 proved a

resounding success for Nederman.

Preston based Nederman introduced

three of its leading product lines and each of

the three products generated sales at the

event. Particularly pertinent at MACH was

the Filtac OMF2000 Series of extraction units

that is regarded as the most efficient oil mist

filtration technology in the machine tool

industry. Incorporating Nederman’s patentpending

FibreDrain technology, the

OMF2000 has been specially designed for

continuous operation on turning, milling and

grinding machines to effectively remove and

control airborne oil mist particles within the

machine envelope.

Appearing alongside the OMF2000 was

the industry leading Filterbox line of dust

and fume extraction systems that is available

as a fixed or mobile unit for 'at-source' dust

and fume extraction. This system proved a

huge crowd pleaser with three sales at

MACH as well as an extremely high enquiry

level. The Filterbox is the solution of choice

for welding, fabrication and other workshop

dust and fume applications

Commenting upon the successful MACH

debut, Nederman Business Manager for

Products, Mr Tony Hopkins said:

“Committing to any exhibition for the first

time is always an unknown exercise.

However, MACH 2018 was a huge success

for Nederman. Our Filtac OMF Series gained

some real traction at MACH and we were

extremely pleased with the high quality leads

we generated at the show. What topped it for

us was the sale of four Filtac OMF units at the

show. Our patented FibreDrain technology is

far superior to alternate products and stand

visitors quickly realised this. We also used

MACH as a networking opportunity to form

relationships with machine tool

manufacturers to introduce the technology to

the OEMs, this is also likely to yield results in

the aftermath of the show.”

SPOTLIGHT ON PRODUCTIVE ADDITIVE

MANUFACTURING

At MACH 2018, global engineering

company Renishaw, showcased the benefits

of its additive manufacturing products range

to manufacturers. The company exhibited its

additive manufacturing products and

software in the 3D Printing Zone as well as a

stand dedicated to its extensive range of

metrology products. During MACH,

Renishaw was visited by Sir Ben Ainslie,

Team Principle and Skipper for the Land

Rover BAR America’s Cup team, who

thanked Renishaw for its significant

contribution to the team.

On its additive manufacturing stand, in

the 3D printing and additive manufacturing

zone, Renishaw exhibited its work as part of

Land Rover BAR’s Technical Innovation

Group (TIG) for the 2017 America’s Cup.

Renishaw contributed encoder technology

and an additively manufactured manifold to

the technologically advanced foiling race

boat.

“Renishaw was lucky enough to be

visited by Sir Ben Ainslie, who officially

opened the show, on the first day of MACH,”

explained Stephen Crownshaw, Business

Jemtech welcomes over 700 visitors to its

stand at MACH 2018 and takes over 300

significant leads and enquiries over the five

days.

Jemtech UK, the exclusive distributor of

Blaser Swisslube metalworking fluids in the

UK and Ireland, and supplier of Oracle

advanced fluid management systems has

reported that its attendance at MACH 2018

was a resounding success.

Exhibiting from its largest stand ever at a

MACH Show, Jemtech used the event to

showcase not only a range of products and

services from its extensive and impressive

portfolio, but to also impress upon visitors the

critical role that metalworking fluids (and

their management) have in making machining

processes more reliable and secure.

According to Stewart Coull, Jemtech’s

Managing Director, “the approach paid

dividends and helped Jemtech substantiate

Manager at Renishaw’s Additive

Manufacturing Products Division. “He was

impressed with the technology we provided

for the America’s Cup, as well as Renishaw’s

measurement equipment, including the

Equator gauge.

“Sir Ben Ainslie launched the show with

a powerful opening speech about fostering

engineering in the UK, encouraging young

people to get involved in engineering and the

TIG. Renishaw is proud to work with Land

Rover BAR, as it shares these values.”

Across MACH, there was a focus on

connectivity, robotics and automation and

productivity. Renishaw tapped into this

trend by highlighting its latest additive

manufacturing system, the RenAM 500Q,

which can increase productivity up to four

times in the most commonly used platform

size and boasts automated powder and waste

handling systems. Renishaw also showed

videos of InfiniAM Spectral, a software

product which allows real-time analysis of

build data.

LOOK BACK AT MACH

CONFIDENCE WAS

HIGH

Across the board at MACH confidence was

high and while machine tools may have been

the focus of many, modular workshop and

storage solutions also proved popular, with

System Store Solutions having a busy week

discussing the efficiency and productivity gains

that can be made through careful planning and

design of the workspace.

“It was interesting to see just how busy the

exhibition was with figures indicating a

significant increase on the previous MACH. It

was also encouraging to see the diversity of

visitors to our stand, we had everyone from

small sub-contractors through to OEM

companies from the engineering sector, and

surprisingly for an engineering exhibition a

good number from the medical sector,” says

Paul Hill, Area Sales Manager, System Store

Solutions.

Of particular interest on the System Store

Solutions stand was the new Master Series

range of storage systems from long-term

partner Fami. Master Series is a modular range

of cabinets that redefines workplace storage

through the ability to reconfigure the system as

a company grows or requirements change. As

expected from one of the leaders in storage

STARRAG TAKES MULTI-MILLION

ORDERS

In addition to receiving orders valued at multi millions of Euros, Starrag UK reports a hugely

successful MACH week “with many positive comments by visitors who in particular were

very surprised – and pleased – at how affordable and available the new range of Heckert

machining centres are”.

Lee Scott, Starrag UK Director for

Sales and Applications, also added:

“Visitors also commented favourably

on our extensive experience of

Industry 4.0 and automation, aspects

of modern production that are

proving increasingly important to

companies of every size across all

industry sectors.”

The stand promoted all product

ranges marketed under the Starrag

brand - Berthiez, Bumotec, Dörries,

Droop+Rein, Ecospeed, Heckert,

Scharmann, SIP and Starrag – though

the focus was on the Heckert range of affordable yet highly productive and high-speed four-

/five-axis horizontal machining centres.

Heckert’s recently-announced new machine series has been designed to cost-effectively

meet the needs of a wide range of companies of any size within supply chains across multiple

industries.

Tel: 0121 359 3637, www.starrag.com

‘ALL THINGS MICRO’

solutions the construction of the Master Series is

to very high standards, with design features

such as front bearing ensuring smooth drawer

action, drawers being freely configurable and

users having personalisation options available

through a choice of 10 colour schemes and

branded labels for each drawer. With security in

mind the system also offers options of manual

and electronic (PIN number controlled)

locking/unlocking.

“A professional review of storage systems

can make a massive difference to the efficient

running of a workshop and it was refreshing to

listen to so many at MACH who recognised this

fact and wanted to discuss how System Store

Solutions can work with them to provide a onestop-shop

from design through to installation to

make these gains a reality.”

Rainford Precision has long been recognised as

the ‘go-to’ company for all your micro

machining applications, but applying this

rationale at MACH yielded the company’s best

results ever at the biennial event.

According to Managing Director, Mr Arthur

Turner the huge flow of visitors to the Rainford

stand was credit to having ‘something

substantial to show’ MACH visitors. In essence,

the figurehead of the St Helens’ company was

referring to the first MACH appearance of the

KERN Micro Pro machining centre, the Finecut

micro abrasive waterjet cutting machine and the

Finespin® polishing and deburring machines

that were all complemented by an extensive

cutting tool portfolio.

“We received a huge number of enquiries

and that was because we gave MACH visitors

something completely new and unique to see.

People genuinely made the effort to attend

MACH just to see the KERN, the Finecut and

the Finespin machines. Attendees were even

bringing fliers distributed prior to the show via

the trade press; such was their appetite for our

technology. Of course, once visitors had seen

the micro technology they came for; we used

the opportunity to introduce the Iwata Tool,

Union Tool, Osawa, Hobe, Louis Belet,

Delmeco, Gloor and Xactform ranges of cutting

tools for hard machining and micro machining

applications. This strategy gave end-users a

chance to investigate all our product lines. It

also gave us greater market penetration with all

our product lines generating enquiries from all

around the UK with a complete spectrum of

industry sectors showing intent to purchase”.

The ultra-precise KERN machine tool brand

took centre stage with the innovative tool and

workpiece magazine configuration integrated

into the compact machine footprint of less than

4 square metres. On display was a 90 station

HSK40 tool magazine combined with a 30

station workpiece changer that can carry pallets

70 x 70 mm with workpieces up to 150 mm tall.

Whilst KERN takes precision to a level far

beyond anything that 99% of the machine tool

sector can achieve, it is the high precision

consistency in dimensions that MACH visitors

were looking for.

CONSIDERABLE

INTEREST

Partnership arrangements with machine tool

manufacturers, along with considerable interest

in its new Designer CAD for CAM system, were

Vero Software’s highlights at the MACH

exhibition.

With a total of 18 partner hotspots around

the UK’s premier production engineering show,

Edgecam programmed 12 CNC machines on

nine manufacturers’ stands, demonstrating 5-

axis simultaneous machining, Waveform

turning and milling, mill/turning, wire EDM,

and certified posts.

DMG Mori ran Edgecam on their DMU 60

Evo Linear machine with a 5-axis simultaneous

program, and an NTX 2000 for mill/turning

operations. UK Showroom Manager

Christopher Cooper says MACH was the

perfect venue to highlight their top level

engineering expertise and their machine tools.

“The linear machine is especially dynamic,

moving at 80 metres a minute, and we created

an impeller from an aluminium block which

was the maximum size for our handling system

– 410 mm wide and 200 mm high. We used

Edgecam to produce code which would show

the machine’s full capabilities, moving the part

around and removing material in the most

efficient way.

Matsuura also programmed two machines

with Edgecam for mill/turn and 5-axis.

“Visitors to our stand were particularly

impressed with how Edgecam produced a

highly complex part that looks like a puzzle or

optical illusion. It was challenging to program,

but Edgecam took it in its stride on our MX 330.

“We work very closely with Edgecam,

which ensures customers get the very best out

of their machine tool. We couldn’t do what we

do without Edgecam.”

Vero’s UK Strategic Partnership Manager

Wesley Tonks says: “Partnering in this way

gives a better understanding of a

manufacturer’s specific requirements, and

allows the machine tool supplier to introduce

the applicable Vero solution.”

VOLLMER GRINDS OUT GREAT

RESULTS

The MACH exhibition once again proved to be

a huge success for Vollmer UK with the tool and

saw blade grinding and sharpening specialists

winning an order at the show as well as

generating a high number of enquiries.

Vollmer had three machines on its MACH

stand and each of the machines for cutting tool

and saw blade production was very well

received by show visitors.

Making its debut at MACH 2018, the Loroch

K850-M for processing metal-cutting saw

blades got proceedings off to a flier with

Birmingham based Precise Saw & Tool Ltd

placing an order at the show. Purchased to add

capacity to its existing operation, the Loroch

K850-M has a 50 blade capacity and robotic

load/unload for extended unmanned running.

The centrepiece of the Vollmer stand was the

new Vgrind 360 tool grinding machine that also

made its UK exhibition premiere. The next

generation Vgrind 360 is the successor to the

Vgrind 160 model, now equipped with

enhanced travel distances for accommodating

carbide drills and milling cutters whose blanks

are made from either solid carbide or carbidetipped

steel bodies up to 200mm diameter.

With groundbreaking kinematics that

incorporates two vertical spindles, the Vgrind

360 allows multi-level machining. This gives

customers the facility to produce large numbers

of milling cutters and drills quickly and

precisely. At MACH 2018, the Vgrind 360 and

its HP 160 loading facility for around-the-clock

unsupervised machining generated a constant

crowd and enquiry levels were unprecedented.

‘BUYING BRITISH’

The 2018 edition of MACH proved to be the

most successful event that Industrial Tooling

Corporation (ITC) has participated in so far.

While many commentators will pin the show

success on a buoyant market and a new floor

layout; for Tamworth manufacturer ITC, the

crowds were drawn in by a stunning stand

design, a Suter MMX500 racing bike and the

sheer diversity of its product range.

Generating more enquiries than at any of

its previous MACH appearances, ITC had a

huge level of interest across the Widia, BIG

KAISER and ITC product ranges. And whilst

the Suter racing bike drew visitors to the

Vollmer UK’s Technical Sales Engineer, Mr

Kieran Rosling said: “Enquiries for the Loroch

K850-M and the flexible CHC840 sharpening

machine for carbide-tipped circular saw blades

up to diameter 840 were particularly high. We

conducted a number of demonstrations on both

machines during MACH week and we have

already booked further trials with a number of

manufacturers showing serious levels of

interest. However, the Vgrind 360 tool grinding

machine was most certainly the show-stopper

for us. The machine demonstrates a serious

investment with results and a return on

investment that is unparallelled. At MACH, the

innovation of the Vgrind 360 was evident and

the enquiry level and the number of follow-on

meetings we have booked-in for the weeks

beyond MACH is really encouraging. The show

was most certainly a success for Vollmer and

this will be qualified in the weeks and months

after the show.“

spacious and inviting stand, it was the

technology that made visitors stay, enquire

and show genuine interest in the latest product

lines.

Commenting upon the extraordinary levels

of interest, ITC’s Marketing & Internal Sales

Manager, Georgia Stewart-Jones says: “The

racing bike pulled crowds to the stand and as

soon as visitors had a glimpse of the high

precision ‘Bluetooth’ boring technology from

BIG KAISER that was next to the bike, general

interest suddenly turned to serious discussions

with our technical engineers. We had

numerous enquiries from manufacturers that

didn’t realise BIG KAISER products were

available in the UK, some visitors didn’t realise

that ITC was a UK manufacturer or that we do

specials whereas some visitors couldn’t

comprehend how extensive our portfolio of

product lines has become. The fact that ITC is

a UK manufacturer of standard and special

tooling lines with fast-turnaround times has

already won us business from MACH.”

MITSUBISHI ADDS SPARK TO MACH

Mitsubishi Electric used MACH 2018 as the

platform to introduce its groundbreaking new

CNC control unit on its established and

industry leading MV Series of EDM machines.

The Mitsubishi EDM stand at MACH was

furnished with the MV1200S and the

MV2400R Series of EDM technology that

introduced the latest advancements in

Industry 4.0 and power supply technology.

The compact

M V 1 2 0 0 S

machine with its

400 by 300 by

220mm (X, Y & Z

axes) travel offers

c o s t - e f f e c t i v e

production in a

small footprint whilst the larger MV2400R

boasted Mitsubishi's V350-V AEII Power

Supply DMX-S (Digital Matrix Sensor) that

shapes each spark to reduce electrode wear

considerably and the World's first Linear Shaft

Drive System XYUV. This combination

delivers smooth, highly controllable

movements and unparalleled precision and

productivity levels.

Quality is in the DNA of the Mitsubishi

brand and the MV-R and MV-S Series at

MACH both demonstrated the pre-installed

Crash Protection System, Intelligent Auto

Wire Threading, the latest Power Master

The new floor-plan at MACH 2018 certainly

reaped rewards for Rochdale based Kerf

Developments. The plasma, waterjet and oxyfuel

cutting manufacturer yielded a greater

number of sales leads from a more diverse client

base than at previous MACH exhibitions.

MACH 2018 was the launch-pad event for the

new Plasmaster HD (High Definition) and the

PythonX robotic plasma structural steel

fabrication system and both machines along with

the established RUR and RUM machines were

hugely successful among visitors.

Commenting upon why the show was such a

success among a diverse audience, Kerf

Developments Sales Director, Mr Craig Walsh

says: “The new Plasmaster 3015 was on show at

MACH and this machine really excited visitors

with its cut-quality and flexibility at such an

affordable price-point. The Plasmaster was onshow

with the Lincoln Electric Flexcut 125 and

the 200HD high-definition plasma unit with

example test pieces to highlight the cut-quality

and precision available at such an affordable

price.

Alongside the extremely popular Plasmaster

was the established RUR2500 and the heavy duty

RUM4500 machine with four cutting heads on a

single gantry.

At the other end of the scale from the

Control for process stability and a host of

additional innovative features. Central to

both machines on the stand was the

revolutionary new CNC control system.

Globally launched at EMO 2017 and

receiving its UK exhibition premiere at

MACH, the new control system incorporates

Industry 4.0 features in abundance.

Advanced technology and a new user

interface can be a daunting prospect for any

machine operator; Mitsubishi Electric has

overcome this by offering both the new and

established interface in a single control. With

the flick of a switch, the new CNC interface

can revert to either type, offering existing

and experienced users the familiar interface

whilst providing all the benefits of the new

technology. The machine operator has a large

screen monitor and modern gesture controls

that boost comfort with a configurable

interface that supports the user by allowing

the main function elements to be freely

arranged for daily work. Furthermore, the

step-by-step dialogue guidance pilots less

experienced operators through the entire

process with checklists taking operators from

programming through to machining.

KERF QUALITY SHINES THROUGH AT

MACH 2018

Plasmaster range, the PythonX robotic plasma

system was hugely successful among

manufacturers in the structural steel industry.

“Whilst the PythonX represents a new

innovative method of manufacture, show

visitors could see the potential of the machine to

replace 5-6 existing machines through its high

level automation and productivity. This machine

really is something that is astounding to see in

action. People passing the stand were watching

the PythonX footage on our monitors and

stopping in the aisles and with Lincoln Electric

experts on-hand; we could discuss applications

with interested attendees.”

“Overall, MACH 2018 was hugely successful

for Kerf and if we could, we’d do MACH every

year. The comments on the technology and cut

samples that we had on show were very

complimentary; MACH was most definitely a

major success for Kerf,” concludes Mr Walsh.

HAINBUCH SETS

NEW RECORDS

Workholding and clamping innovators

Hainbuch have started 2018 in spectacular

fashion and the first quarter performance is set

to continue after an outstanding MACH 2018.

Recording its best first four-month period ever,

MACH 2018 yielded a lead generation rate

more than double that achieved during the 2016

event.

Commenting upon the exceptionally high

enquiry level at MACH 2018, Hainbuch UK’s

Managing Director, Mr Nick Peter says: “We

recieved more than double the enquiries at

MACH than we did two years ago. We are very

particular about the names we take as we only

want to be speaking with manufacturers that

have a serious interest. The Hainbuch team has

already qualified the leads and we have to

either visit or quote upwards of 100 businesses.

Of these companies, at least 60% are new names

to our business and this is great news for

Hainbuch. We have a quote to order ratio in the

region of 70-80%, so we‘ll be expecting to

generate a lot of new business as a result of

exihibting at MACH.“

“The diversity of enquiry covers the

complete range from the Hydrok hydraulically

actuated stationary chuck and the Manok

stationary chuck through to the TestIT

clamping force gauges, the TOPlus and

SPANNTOP mini chucks, the new MANDO

Adapt series, the Centrex face drive attachment

and the new Magnetic Modules. There was also

a number of Hainbuch clamping systems on

machine tools around the exhibition and a

number of stand visitors came over from

machine tool stands, as they had purchased

machines at MACH that will be supplied with

our technology. This emphasised the value of

our collaboration with machine tool builders

and how our product lines complement and

maximise the flexibility and capability of

industry leading machine tools,” concludes Mr

Peter.

With everything workholding on the

Hainbuch stand from 5-axis component

clamping through to stationary and rotary

solutions, the Staffordshire Company offered

something for all industry sectors and

manufacturing applications. If you couldn’t

make it to MACH and you would like to find

out why Hainbuch is the first name in clamping

technology, please contact Hainbuch for more

information.

LOOK BACK AT MACH

MASTER ABRASIVES MAJOR SUCCESS

Exhibiting the widest range of grinding and

finishing products in its 50 years of trading,

Master Abrasives was as busy as expected at the

MACH show this year.

At the centre of their stand stood the eco 200

grinding machine by Micromatic Grinding

Technologies, being exhibited for the first time in

the UK. To complement this, the Master® range of

grinding wheels was displayed with its updated

brochure available to match the brand’s new look.

Paul Batson, Master Abrasives Managing

Director comments: “MACH was ideal platform

for the full range of machinery and grinding

products we now offer. We were pleased to

welcome hundreds of visitors onto our stand to

view the eco 200 grinding machine. One of the

highlights at the show was making the sale of the

eco 200 to Border Ballistics Technologies.”

The economical eco 200 received a lot of

attention being a basic but high-precision grinder

which can be used for external, internal or face

grinding applications. The machine was

displayed with a range of the additional

accessories offered by Micromatic, including the

digital read-out. Its small footprint and low cost

combined with its ability to hold tight tolerances

makes it a great economical entry model machine

for tool rooms requiring precise and accurate

repeatability of wheel slide within ±0.001mm.

Master Abrasives also used the show as an

opportunity to announce their new agency for

Alex Machine Tools, which are now available in

the UK & Ireland. ALEX has developed a

comprehensive range of surface grinding

machines over the past 30 years, including the

reciprocating hydraulically-operated surface

grinder, the high power rotary surface grinder

and the precision double disk grinders. This range

includes a wide variety of sophisticated elements

including computer numerical controls,

automatic in-process gauging and other material

handling automation, depending on the

customer’s need and application.

With machines for grinding and

superfinishing and a full range of abrasives and

measuring equipment, there was something for

everyone at Master Abrasives stand.

“I’m sure visitors will have been impressed by

what they saw of Master Abrasives at MACH, but

I guarantee a visit to our grinding and finishing

showroom and tour of our facilities in

Northamptonshire is even more impressive,”

concludes Paul Batson.

A NEW ERA IN UK CAM SOFTWARE

MACH 2018 started in spectacular fashion for

OPEN MIND Technologies with the CAM

specialist selling three seats of hyperMILL CAM

software in the first two days, an additional four

by the end of the show and another three in the

week after MACH. Located at the entrance to Hall

17, the prime position yielded an unprecedented

level of enquiries and sales.

Four of the seats were sold to prestigious

subcontract manufacturers whilst another seat

was sold to Iver based Newmax Precision. The

Buckinghamshire aerospace and defense

manufacturer is taking delivery of its first 5-axis

Mills CNC, the exclusive distributor of Doosan

machine tools in the UK and Ireland, showcased 16

advanced high-performance machines on its stand

at MACH 2018.

A number of the machines exhibited were

making their debuts at the Show, and amongst

these was Doosan’s latest addition to its already

impressive 5-axis machine tool portfolio - the DVF

5000.

The machine, as was the case with all the

Doosan machines being showcased, proved

machining centre in July, a Matsuura MX330.

Realising its existing CAM software will not

deliver the 5-axis machining strategies to drive the

Matsuura, Newmax Precision Director Mr Adrian

Bundy visited MACH to buy a seat of 5-axis CAM

software. hyperMILL was the preferred choice.

For engineers looking for a paradigm shift in

turning strategies, OPEN MIND had the answer

here too. The new Vandurit rollFEED® turning

system is a collaboration between Vandurit and

OPEN MIND that now offers an exclusive

hyperMILL® CAM strategy to match the

groundbreaking roll turning development. This

THEY CAME. THEY SAW. IT CONQUERED

popular during MACH and its addition has helped

further substantiate Mills CNC’s position as a

market-leading 5-axis machine tool provider.

The DVF 5000 is rigidly built machine and

provides precision component manufacturers with

full simultaneous 5-axis machining capability. The

machine is equipped with a powerful

18.5kW/12,000rpm directly-coupled spindle. (An

18,000rpm built-in spindle variation is available as

an option).

Initially the DVF 5000 will be available from

Mills with the Heidenhain iTNC640 control. DVF

5000 models with Fanuc and Siemens controls will

be available later in the year.

Says Tony Dale, Mills CNC’s Technical Director:

“Precision, speed, process reliability and flexibility

accurately sum up the credentials of the new

Doosan DVF 5000 machining centre.

sales@millscnc.co.uk

www.millscnc.co.uk

collaboration introduces a new solution for CNC

turning that increases process reliability and

significantly reduces machining times and toolwear

by up to a staggering 90%.

Commenting upon OPEN MIND

Technologies performance at MACH, Sales

Director Mr Ken Baldwin says: “We had a couple

of hundred leads from MACH and we did

countless demonstrations. We were

phenomenally busy throughout the week and at

times the interest level was quite overwhelming.

Compared to MACH 2016, it is evident that the

OPEN MIND brand has really grown and there is

a huge swing in the industry from other CAM

vendors to hyperMILL. There were very few

‘casual’ walk-on visitors at MACH; everyone that

approached us was a serious buyer that was

seeking us out.

“We were also really pleased that the MTA

had grouped all the CAM suppliers close to each

other as our stand and the demonstration parts

were really eye-catching and that made our

technology instantly appeal to visitors. This was

supplemented by some very impressive

demonstration parts on the Mazak, DMG Mori,

XYZ and FANUC stands that were all applying

hyperMILL to highlight the capabilities of their

machines through our software.”
