The new Mikron 600 UCP machine is a highly productive, flexible machining centre. The 5 axis capabilities makes it possible to machine a wide variety of shapes and surfaces in one go, a 18000 rpm high performance milling spindle gives high cutting volumes and positioning accuracy. With the capacity of 220 tools preloaded and a 7 pallet loading magazine; multiple jobs can be set up and run automatically.
“Demand for high quality, low volume complex components has been steadily increasing across a variety of industry sectors. Customers are now requiring us to do their larger production runs with shorter lead times; so investment in new machinery, software and people was crucial. We’re very excited about the future of manufacturing and engineering within the UK and are confident this will vastly improve our service to customers,” Hugh Watson – Managing Director.
