Prototype machines meet R&D and education needs

Axminster preview edit_tmbWith over 40 years’ experience, Axminster Tools & Machinery should be on the visit list for any Northern Manufacturing visitors interested in machinery. The firm says it selects the best manufacturers with which to work, so that customers can be certain of the reliability, availability and serviceability of its range of machines.

The company is continually enlarging and updating its range of metalworking tools and machinery. Recently, it has developed the Axminster CNC Technology range. Working closely with manufacturing partner Sieg, this is a core range of CNC metalworking mills and lathes that fill an important niche in the market, the company believes. The machines are manufactured in high-grade cast iron, giving a stable and absorbing platform. All are supplied with software which is compatible with Windows 7, 10, XP and Vista.

At this year’s Northern Manufacturing & Electronics, the company will showcase some exciting products. On display will be its own brand machines, including Axminster CNC Technology Series iKX3 mill and iKC6 lathe, together with a range of pillar drills from the Axminster Engineer Series SB-16, SB-25, SB-250 and SB-25-TC. All are suitable for prototype and light engineering, small production workshops and component makers, fabrication works for testing, R&D and the education sector including university technical colleges.

The company also has exclusivity in the UK for the Jet Elite range of mills, lathes and bandsaws. These efficient and powerful machines offer precision, durability and safety which widely exceeds market standards, claims the company.
