Machine Tools Six of them will be shown in the UK for the first time. Two Halter robotic loading and unloading systems will also make their UK debut.

A range of live demonstrations will be run on Chiron, Nakamura-Tome, Stama, Quaser and Hardinge machines. Premiered will be Chiron's FZ12 FX Flex-Cell Uno, regarded as a leading machining centre, in terms of speed, compact construction and capability. It can operate in high/medium volume manufacturing environments for 5-axis complicated machining with high process stability.

Exhibited too are three Nakamura turning centres; the NTRX-300, a fusion between a 5-axis machining centre and a lathe, makes its UK exhibition debut. This heavy-duty multi-tasking machine offers single set-up capability for machining complex, high value components. The demonstration machine will feature a 80 mm through bore bar capacity; Another exhibit, the AS 200 is a single-turret mill/turn centre offering powerful machining performance at a competitive price. The machine, fitted with a Halter Load Assistant load/unload unit, uses a Fanuc robot arm and is suited for small and medium CNC lathes and machining centres. The third from Nakamura is a WT-150II turning centre.
