The XYZ 2-OP vertical machining centre was Nacom’s first investment to bring machining in-house.
The XYZ 2-OP was swiftly followed by the XYZ LPM vertical machining centre, the XYZ SMX 5000 bed mill (shown here) and XYZ SLX 355 ProTURN lathe (below), all controlled by the market-leading ProtoTRAK control.
While the increased efficiency in producing its own components was justification enough for making this investment in the machines from XYZ Machine Tools, an unexpected benefit was the fact that Nacom is now picking up sub-contract work as word spreads about its new capability. So much so that a further machine, this time an XYZ CT52 turning centre has recently arrived to bolster the company’s turning capability. This is a new direction for Nick and his team, as the XYZ CT52 turning centre is the first non-ProtoTRAK controlled machine in Nacom’s machining portfolio, with the XYZ CT52 featuring the Siemens 828D ShopTurn conversational control.
