Bigger than you expected - better than you imagined!

MACH Machine Tools Ltd: Hall 20 Stand 891
MACH Show release

Bigger than you expected - better than you imagined!

MACH Machine Tools brings the ‘WOW’ factor to the MACH Show with the launch of a new range of ‘best-in-class’ CNC lathes and machining centres.

MACH Machine Tools, part of the Vigilance Group, has announced that it is using the forthcoming MACH Show in April as the platform to launch a new range of high-spec, technically-advanced CNC machine tools into the market.

The company will be showcasing two machines (the MACH S-202 - an 8” chuck high-performance lathe, and the MACH 710 Mini Mill+ - an equally impressive vertical machining centre) from the new range on its stand (Hall 20 Stand 891) at the show.

The two new CNC machines will be showcased alongside a range of the company’s best-selling and ever-popular manual models - many of which have become ‘staple’ machines for UK and Irish component manufacturers and for a growing number of educational institutions too.

The manual machines on show include: the MACH VS-1 (turret-type) milling machine, two manual lathes (a MACH L 1340 and a MACH L 1540), and a range of MACH linishers, MACH bandsaws and MACH drilling machines.

Says MACH Machine Tools’ director, Matt Andrew:

“We have built a reputation in the market for supplying high-quality, value-added and competitively-priced manual machines backed by first-class after-sales service and technical support.

“We have now applied the same mindset and adopted the same business approach to our new and latest venture - and are providing component manufacturers with a range of CNC machine tools that, from a performance, specification and price perspective, have no equal.”

Even a cursory glance at the new MACH CNC lathe and MACH machining centre ranges prove that such claims are entirely accurate.

The MACH S-202 CNC lathe

The 8” chuck MACH S-202 is a 2-axis CNC lathe with a 400mm turning length and 52mm bore capacity. The machine can be supplied with either the latest Fanuc 0i-TD or Siemens 828D control with ShopTurn software and, included as standard, comes equipped with a programmable tailstock, parts catcher and swarf conveyor.

Also available in the turning range is the MACH SL-203-B lathe - a big bore, C-axis long-bed model with driven tools and a choice of either a Siemens or Fanuc control.

The MACH 710 Mini Mill+

The MACH 710 Mini Mill+ is a powerful and versatile 3-axis vertical machining centre equipped with a 11kW/12,000rom (direct drive) BBT 40 spindle, a 24-position (side-mounted) ATC, 48m/min rapids and roller linear guideways. The machine is available with a choice of controls - either the Fanuc 0i-TD or Siemens 828D with onboard ShopMill software).

(The MACH S-202 CNC lathe and the MACH 710 Mini Mill Plus machining centre being launched at the Show are both being showcased with the Fanuc control. A Siemens 828D simulator will also be available on the stand for visitors to see this control option).

Says Matt Andrew:

“A key differentiator of our new MACH CNC machine tools compared to other CNC machines on the market, is just how much technology is provided as standard on the MACH machines.

“Many manufacturers provide, what is in essence, a basic shell of a machine for the list price and then offer a range of necessary and required features as ‘extras’. This can be frustrating for customers as they see the cost for a machine rapidly going up and spiralling out of control.

“We have taken a different position - and provide customers with cost transparency and added vale.

“For example, the Siemens control, available as standard on both our MACH CNC lathes and machining centres, is for the full version of the 828D control complete with either ShopTurn or ShopMill software. Neither are optional extras.”

It’s a similar situation with the Fanuc control too, as it’s supplied with the latest Fanuc 10.4” console with the AICC-ii (high-speed block-processing, look ahead facility) supplied as standard.

MACH 2018 also serves as the launch pad for MACH Machine Tools’ new ‘teach-type’ CNC control - designed specifically for the MACH VS-1 turret mill. This control is designed and manufactured in the US for MACH Machine Tools and is a 3-axis system (Quill-mounted Z-axis), fully conversational and G Code ready platform.

As well as the CNC and manual machines being exhibited - MACH Machine Tools will also be promoting a number of new customer service initiatives on its stand.

These include:

1. The MACH Hire rental initiative which enables manufactures to ‘hire’ a new MACH machine for 12, 24 or 36 months;

2. A MACH VS-1 spare and wear parts facility that provides customers with easy and fast access to competitively-priced (MACH VS-1) replacement parts;

3. The ‘Sell It Today’ scheme, which is an innovative used machine part-exchange initiative that enables visitors to get an immediate valuation on any used machine they are considering selling during the MACH 2018 Show. (The only thing visitors need to bring with them is a photograph of the machine they wish to part exchange).

Concludes Matt Andrew:

“The MACH Show, and indeed 2018, is a real watershed for us.

“A new chapter for MACH Machine Tools is opening and it’s exciting times for the company.

“I would urge manufacturers looking for something new and different in the machine tools’ sector to make their way to our stand at MACH. I am confident they won’t be disappointed.
