WorldSkills UK finalists use Doosan machines

The recently-held WorldSkills UK 2023 CNC turning and CNC milling competition finals, which took place at Tameside College, Manchester, saw students and apprentices put through their paces using machine tools supplied by Mills CNC.The finals took place at the college’s £10m advanced technologies centre in Ashton-Under-Lyne.

Both CNC machining finals utilised machine tools from Mills CNC, comprising a Doosan DNM 400 machining centre and a Doosan Lynx 220 lathe. These machines were installed at Tameside College’s engineering facility in 2016 as part of a six Doosan machine investment package.During the three-day competition, Gavin Dixon, a Mills CNC applications engineer, was not only onsite providing technical support and advice to the college and the finalists, he was also on the judging panel.
