Tornos secures orders at MACH 2018

MACH 2018, held at the Birmingham NEC last month, got off to a flier for Tornos with two verbal orders for the Swiss GT26 from day one being signed and confirmed on day two.

This was rapidly followed by an order for a CT20 with a number of additional enquiries turning into firm orders in the two weeks after the show.
With the SwissNano micro-turning solution and the robust GT32 on the stand, the diversity of turning solutions certainly appealed to show visitors. This was indicative of the orders received, with the heavy duty GT26 being chosen by a medical specialist for its ergonomic and modular configuration on a robust platform. The GT range also allows B-axis machining and the option of simultaneous five-axis machining. According to Tornos, the smaller, second-generation CT20 turning centre was selected for its ability to work with or without a guide bush, while offering more tools in counter spindle operations and the ability to run with a choice of mineral or soluble oil. Selected by a medical and scientific subcontractor, the CT20 has undoubtedly been a machine of interest since its launch.
The SwissNano machine that appeared on the stand is said to be unlike any other machine in the marketplace, and its ability to offer precision machining of turned parts below 4 mm impressed a number of MACH visitors.
Commenting upon the show, UK account manager David Dunn, says: “Winning orders and picking up leads at the show really demonstrates why the show is a ‘must-attend’ event for the industry. The lead generation from MACH is extremely diverse, with interest from a complete spectrum of industry sectors, geographical locations and application requirements.”
