In its 50th anniversary year, Hurco took 34 machine tool orders valued at £2.5 million during the recent MACH 2018 exhibition.

It was an opportunity to showcase three new machines. Appearing for the first time were the VC500i 5-axis vertical machining centre, the new BX50i 3-axis machining centre of bridge-type design and the upgraded XP lathe range with Hurco Max5 control. In total, 11 machines were demonstrated including five different 5-axis machining centre configurations, each ideally suited to a different range of applications.

A New Era in UK CAM Software

MACH 2018 started in spectacular fashion for OPEN MIND Technologies, selling three seats of hyperMILL CAM software in the first two days, an additional four by the end of the show and another three in the week after MACH.

Four of the seats were sold to prestigious subcontract manufacturers whilst another seat was sold to Iver based Newmax Precision. The Buckinghamshire aerospace and defense manufacturer is taking delivery of its first 5-axis machining centre in July, a Matsuura MX330. Realising its existing CAM software will not deliver the 5-axis machining strategies to drive the Matsuura, Newmax Precision Director Mr Adrian Bundy visited MACH to buy a seat of 5-axis CAM software. hyperMILL was the preferred choice.

Jemtech welcomed over 700 visitors to its stand

Exhibiting from its largest stand ever at a MACH Show, Jemtech used the event to showcase not only a range of products and services from its extensive and impressive portfolio, but to also impress upon visitors the critical role that metalworking fluids (and their management) have in making machining processes more reliable and secure.

‘Buying British’ Message Wins Business for ITC

The 2018 edition of MACH proved to be the most successful event that Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) has participated in so far.

While many commentators will pin the show success on a buoyant market and a new floor layout; for Tamworth manufacturer ITC, the crowds were drawn in by a stunning stand design, a Suter MMX500 racing bike and the sheer diversity of its product range.
