The machine is the first Mazak to be acquired by the Group and will go straight from MACH to Expert’s facility in the North West of England.
Expert Technologies Group is a global provider of automation solutions for a wide variety of industry sectors, ranging from medical and pharmaceutical through to food and beverage, automotive and aerospace. The group has seven global locations including three manufacturing facilities in the UK.
Chris Clifton, head of manufacturing at Expert Technologies commented: “Our philosophy is to provide the most advanced manufacturing technologies and it is important that our own machining capabilities therefore remain at the cutting-edge of technology.
“Mazak share many of our own manufacturing philosophies, including a commitment to excellence in all of their operations. The machine we selected fits our requirements perfectly and the combination of machine capability, build quality and on-going support made the decision easier.”
The QUICK TURN 350MSY is a high productivity turning centre equipped with milling, second spindle and Y-axis function to offer a Multi-Tasking solution for machine users. The machine specified by Expert Technologies Group is also equipped with SmoothG CNC.
Jason Butler, sales director at Yamazaki Mazak commented: “Expert visited us at our November Open House and were impressed by our own manufacturing operations and the potential of the QUICK TURN to upgrade their machining capabilities. It’s a great machine and we look forward to supporting its commissioning and the training of Expert’s machine operators on the SmoothG control.”
