HALL 16, STANDS A04, A06 AND B05



600 UK will exhibit a range of advanced CNC turning centres, manual/CNC ‘teach’ lathes, manual centre lathes, advanced workholding and Gamet Bearings’ high precision bearing products at EMO in Hannover, Germany from 16-21 September 2013.


Among the industry-leading machines on show will be Colchester’s new 2 and 3-axis Tornado CNC Turning Centres, Harrison’s Alpha X Series – the world’s finest CNC combination lathe – as well as Colchester and Harrison’s world renown conventional centre lathe range.


The new modular built Tornado CNC turning centre provides an even more robust manufacturing platform than its predecessor, ensuring greater accuracy and reliability than ever before and will sit alongside the hugely popular Alpha XS manual/CNC lathe, with models that can accommodate up to 6 metre bed lengths and C-axis capability for handling larger, more complex, components.


Visitors will also be able to see the new ‘Gripfast’ combination Power Chuck from Pratt Burnerd International which provides CNC lathe customers with a chuck, a collet chuck and a mandrel chuck all combined in the one unit, allowing instant set-up changes for medium to small batch production runs, increasing productivity and minimizing non-machining time.



Note to Editors


The 600 Group PLC (“the Group”) is a diversified engineering group with three principal areas of activity:


Machine Tools – the business has a strong reputation in the market for metal turning machines. Products range from small conventional machines for education markets, CNC workshop machines and CNC production machines.  The manufacturing footprint is supported by selected outsourcing partners and machines are marketed through the Group’s wholly owned international sales organisation.


Precision Engineered Components – machine spares are distributed to customers globally to help maintain the installed base of group machines which number in excess of 100,000.  Additionally work holding products and taper roller bearings are sold via specialist distributors to OEMs including other machine builders.


Laser Marking – laser marking is a technologically superior alternative to inkjet marking.  It requires no consumables and can operate on a continuous high speed basis when integrated into customers’ production lines.  The business has its own technology and proprietary software.  Customer applications are diverse and range from telecommunications to pharmaceuticals.  The requirement for increased product and component traceability is one of the market drivers.
