Chester and Blum on show

Keen to build an association with local manufacturing companies and support British business, Chester Machine Tools and Blum Novotest joined forces at the recent Manufacturing & Engineering show, North East.

Drawing the attention of visitors, Chester Machine Tools performed live machining demonstrations on its V6L CNC machining centre, which at the show featured a Blum ZXSpeed universal 3D probe for tool setting and breakage monitoring.
The Chester VL6 offers a simple entry to CNC machining and is suited to education and training environments, tool-room workshops, mould making and R&D departments. Importantly, the cast-iron construction of the machine is tempered for stress relief to promote structural stability, while C3-class ballscrews enhance accuracy and durability. The machine houses a 10,000 rpm spindle and can be supplied with a Siemens or Fanuc control.
