Newcastle-based Expert Precision Engineering has invested in four machines from XYZ Machine Tools, two XYZ TC400 turning centres, and XYZ 1100 HD and XYZ 800 HD vertical machining centres.
Among the key reasons to choose XYZ was its use of the Siemens ShopMill and ShopTurn control systems, along with the solid construction of the machines, with their box slideways and overall machining capacities.
“We find that with the Siemens control we can cut programming time in half thanks to the easy-to-use interface and graphics, and we can also edit programs quickly,” says director Martin Stokoe. “The rigid construction of the machines, along with the powerful spindles, also suited the work we would be machining, which involves hogging-out material. In our view, the XYZ models can do the work of machines that would be twice the price, so they provide excellent value for money and cost-effective machining, delivering savings that we can pass on to customers.”
