Record numbers at Citizen open house

A total of nine orders to the value of £2m were placed at Citizen Machinery UK’s first open house at its new Midlands turning centre of excellence in Brierley Hill.

The company reports that the order total is likely to double in the immediate aftermath of the event. Attendance over the three days exceeded 300, a record number. Visitors looking to upgrade their sliding- and fixed-head CNC turning capacity were welcomed from OEMs and subcontractors throughout the UK and Ireland, as well as from mainland Europe.
A quartet of new products were launched, all of which benefit from Citizen’s patented LFV chip-breaking software: the L32-X, L32-XII and D25-VIII Cincom sliding-head bar automatics on which the software is optional; and the Miyano BNA-42GTY, the first Citizen fixed-head lathe to have the addition of LFV in the operating system of the Mitsubishi control. A further 11 machines were on display cutting metal.
