XYZ Machine Tools has taken two stands at the upcoming Advanced Engineering Show taking place at the NEC, Birmingham on the 1-2 November.

A total of five machines will be on display with the XYZ UMC-5X, its gantry-style, full simultaneous, 5-axis machine taking centre stage on stand CM17. Next door on stand CM18 will be a display of machines covering the XYZ range of ProtoTRAK and Siemens controlled machines.

XYZ sees Advanced Engineering as an ideal show to highlight the capability of the UMC-5X machine, which it sees as a ‘game-changer’ in the 5-axis market due to its exceptional technology/price ratio. The machine delivers exceptional performance, matching that of machines that would cost considerably more for the same level of technology and accuracy. The UMC-5X is available with either the Siemens 840DSL Shopmill or, the Heidenhain iTNC 640 HSCI control systems; it also benefits from its gantry-type design, which adds greater rigidity and performance; C-axis rotation via direct drive, low maintenance, high torque motor, giving 90rpm, ±120° on the tilting A-axis, with 2.5 sec for full movement and 600mm axis travel in X and Y (500mm in Z), allowing larger parts to be machined than on comparable machines.

Visitors will also be able to see the new XYZ 500 LR vertical machining centre under power at the show. The LR range of machines form the first step to VMC ownership from XYZ, while still offering exceptional specification and performance. The machines make use of linear rail ball bearing slideways, which provide a lower cost alternative to XYZ’s existing range of box slideway machines, without compromising performance. The range consists of three machines, the 500 LR, 750 LR and 1000 LR, with the number designating X-axis travel. Also shown on stand CM18 will be an SLX 355 ProTURN lathe, And SMX 3500 ProtoTRAK controlled bed mill and the innovative XYZ 2-OP portable vertical machining centre, which also benefits from the use of the market-leading ProtoTRAK control system.
