College installs 21 machines from XYZ

The South West Institute of Technology facility at Truro and Penwith College’s Truro campus has invested £7.2m in a dedicated facility that includes an extensive machine shop equipped with multiple machines from XYZ Machine Tools. Among the 21 XYZ models is everything from manual XYZ 1530VS trainer lathes and XYZ 2000 knee mills with digital readouts, through to ProtoTRAK-controlled mills and lathes, and an XYZ 660 HD vertical machining centre.
Says Andy Foulks, engineering lecturer: “XYZ Machine Tools bent over backwards in terms of the service they provided, from initial quotation through to machine installation and ongoing training and support. They are certainly customer-focussed when it comes to the education sector with nothing being too much trouble. Our students are also welcomed at their factory for visits, additional insights and training on machines. Our role is to ensure that we keep up with industry requirements, hence the investment in CNC machinery.”
