XYZ Machine Tools is one of the UK’s largest supplier of machine tools, with a product range spanning manual training machines, through its market-leading ProtoTRAK-controlled mills and lathes, CNC vertical machining and turning centres, to the highly sophisticated, yet extremely price competitive, UMC-5X five-axis machining centre. Its success is due to its all-round service to customers, from the design of its machines, through technical support, service and training for customers, to with finance to suit every business. As part of its commitment, XYZ offers free training with every machine sold and the support of its experienced applications team, along with ongoing access to its programming support line.

This ensures a high proportion of repeat business as well as drawing in many new customers. XYZ Machine Tools has installed well in excess of 20,000 machines across the UK to customers as diverse as one-man businesses, the education sector, and major blue-chip OEMs. Ensuring customers get the machine they need, when they need it, XYZ holds over 300 machines in stock at its headquarters, with five showrooms around the country providing easy access for demonstrations and training. Service is also assured with a dedicated 18,000 ft2 of warehouse storage containing over £1.5 million of spare parts for rapid response to any issues.

XYZ Machine Tools’ success was founded on the innovative ProtoTRAK control system for mills and lathes. Designed from the ground up to be ‘easy to use’ it enables users to program machines after just a few hours of training. The latest generation of ProtoTRAK, the RX, has retained all the features that made the control system popular with 1000s of customers but with a host of new features and benefits. Central to the new ProtoTRAK control is its 15.6” touchscreen that puts all of ProtoTRAK’s advantages at the users’ fingertips.

In addition, XYZ Machine Tools also has a range of CNC machining centres and turning centres. The VMC range consists of the Linear Rail (LR) series, offering a perfect entry into the vertical machining centre sector, and the box slideway Heavy-Duty (HD) series, providing a perfect performance/price ratio. The range extends from the compact and portable 2-OP VMC to the XYZ 3010 VMC, weighing in at 25,000 kg, with one metre travel in the Y axis. The UMC 4+1 and UMC-5X multi-axis machining centres, the latter providing full, simultaneous, five-axis motion, complete the line-up, with both machines having the same machining envelope of 600 by 600 by 500 mm (XYZ) and a 600 mm trunnion-style rotary table with 90 revs/min rotational speed and 600 kg load capacity. These machines provide a highly cost-effective route into multi-facet machining.

The turning centre range starts with the XYZ CT 65 with a 23 hp spindle and 65 mm bar capacity, a Y axis version the XYZ CT 65 LTY is also available and extends to the XL and Oil Country lathes, with up to 85 hp spindles and up to 2.2 metre swing over the bed, with between centre distances up to 16 metres.

XYZ Machine Tools’ innovative ROBO-TEND modular and mobile robot automation system for vertical machining and turning centres brings true robot automation within the reach of traditional sub-contract engineering businesses. The system is fully compatible with the Siemens ShopMill and ShopTurn controls used on XYZ’s VMC’s and turning centres. The modular design of ROBO-TEND means it can be adapted quickly and easily to suit changing working situations, creating a solution to that will open up automation to a much wider audience at a very competitive price.
