XYZ brings 19 machines to MACH 2024 and launches its new CT65 LTY-S twin/sub spindle lathe

2 mins read

XYZ Machine Tools will be exhibiting the full range of its TMC machining centres for the first time at MACH 2024 and it will also be the premier for the new XYZ CT65 LTY-S twin/sub spindle lathe.

In total it will have 16 machines under power on its main stand (Hall 20 stand 140) right next to the entrance to Hall 20.

In addition, it will have an XYZ RLX 780 3m CNC Lathe on a second stand (Hall 6 stand 72) and two XYZ 500LR VMCs on the WorldSkills stand (Hall 17 stand 480)

The XYZ TMC range features the easy to use and famous ProtoTRAK® control which delivers simple shop floor programming complete with optional handwheels for manual operation and winding forwards and backwards through the machining cycle.

Built with a solid ribbed casting and the latest linear rail technology, these machines, are not much more than an equivalent sized XYZ Bed Mill, giving the advantages of the bed mill in an enclosed safe and clean working environment with an up to 20 station carousel tool changer. These machines give the versatility to make one off or small batch parts to full production runs with minimal operator effort.

Making its debut at MACH 2024, the Box Way XYZ CT65 LTY-S twin/sub spindle lathe brings the advantages of automated one hit turned and milled components to XYZ’s customers.The machine can turn parts up to 490mm long and bar feed diameters up to 66mm. With twin spindles, live tooling and Y and C axis, this machine can turn and mill complex parts at both ends in one operation, dropping the finished part into its part catcher for hours of unattended machining.

For heavy duty machining applications, the XYZ 800 HD includes box slideways and massive ribbed castings for maximum rigidity. Matched with the Siemens 828D control with ShopMill and options for 4th axis rotary tables, this machine has the power and capability to machine the toughest materials.

For full 5-axis simultaneous machining the XYZ UMC-5X can save hours in setup time especially where 6 sides of a part need to be milled or drilled. With suitable fixturing full machining can be done in just two setups. Repeatability on this machine is ± 2.5 microns with linear scales on X, Y and Z and high precision encoders on the A and C axes. A direct drive high torque 90 rpm motor is standard on the rotary axis and an option on the tilting axis. 

15,000 rpm spindle, Dynamic Collision Monitoring and Thermal Spindle Compensation are standard with options for 18,000 and 24,000 rpm spindles and Traori hole machining compensation making this a powerful and cost effective solution which has proved to be popular with aerospace manufacturers.

The stand will also feature the ever-popular RMX Bed Mills, KMX Turret Mills and RLX Lathes. These machines can be used manually or under full CNC with their ProtoTRAK controls. This makes learning and operating the machines very simple, quickly and easily getting to a finished component.

This year, XYZ Machine Tools is celebrating 40 years since it was founded. Now it has over 15,000 machines in daily use in the UK and across Europe where it has an extensive distribution network. It is well known for the reliability and quality of its machines and its after sales service. MACH 2024 is an important part of these celebrations and the team at XYZ Machine Tools is looking forward to meeting you at the show.
