XYZ Machines Tools demos diverse range of machines

2-OP High Res_tmb A broad cross-section of XYZ Machine Tools’ range will fill its stand at Southern Manufacturing 2015, including ProtoTrak controlled turret and bed mills and SLX ProTurn lathes, through to full CNC machining centres and turning centres.

The company will demonstrate the ProtoTrak control system with an XYZ SMX 3500 bed mill and an XYZ ProTurn SLX 425 lathe. The system is suitable for one-off and small batch quantities. Even operators without any knowledge of CNC will be producing parts within a day, promises the company.

Also on display will be an XYZ 710 VMC vertical machining centre and an XYZ Compact Turn 52 turning centre. Models in the VMC range have solid Meehanite castings and extra- wide induction hardened box slideways with Turcite-B coatings. Customers can specify Siemens control with ShopMill conversational programming or the Fanuc production control.

The Compact Turn 52 has a compact footprint of just 1700 x 1450mm in its standard form. Yet it has 5000 revs/min/20 hp spindle and axis travels of 185 and 325mm (X and Z), with rapid traverse rates of 20m/min. Like all of the machines in the XYZ range, these turning centres benefit from a highly rigid and stable construction, with hardened and ground box slideways and solid meehanite castings for the major components.
