Presentations from the XYZ ROBO-TEND and XYZ UMC-5X development team:

James Selka – MTA Chief Executive.

I believe that once you’ve understood the hard economics behind connecting cost effective automation and 5 axis machining you will understand that this is the future.

Paul Stout – Managing Director Adelphi Automation.

The XYZ ROBO-TEND journey, from concept to design and manufacture.

Mike Wilson – Managing Director KUKA UK and Ireland.

A major factor in the successful implementation of robot automation is a strong partnership between the customer and the solution providers. XYZ, Adelphi and KUKA
together provide the foundation for success.

Juan Martin – European 5 Axis Technical Director.

Single clamping 5 faces machining is the first step to un-manned operation. Simultaneous 5X machining is the key for higher productivity.

Jeremy Hadall CEng FIET – Chief Engineer – Intelligent Automation, MTC.

The importance of Robotics now and into the future.

Jonathan Theobalds – Managing Director Rivercircle.

Current XYZ UMC-5X user explains why they made the investment and the immediate benefits realised.

Think to the future with either full blown 5 axis simultaneous or 5 axis Multi-face (4+1).

Save hours of time even on simple jobs that are currently done on a 3 axis VMC, to machine 6 sides of a dice requires 6 set ups on a VMC and 2 on a multi-face machine.

We will show you how to make the right
choices when it comes to 5 axis production.

Mobile robotic automation for Turning and Machining Centres.

It’s here, the XYZ answer to affordable mobile shopfloor automation. This is the culmination of over two years development and testing, the XYZ ROBO-TEND is a truly mobile automation solution for the entire shopfloor. It’s quick and easy to move, load and even easier to program, you’ll soon wonder how you ever managed without it.

Every company attending the Manufacturing Technology Centre on 17th October 2019, for the full duration of the presentations, will be entered into a draw. The winner will receive a free, 3 month trial of an XYZ ROBO-TEND and an XYZ VMC.

Both machines will be delivered, commissioned, and the usual training will be given. They will then have full use of the XYZ ROBO-TEND and the XYZ VMC for three months, after which the machines can be collected or, an order can be placed to keep both or either.

* Please note terms and conditions apply.

This brings true mobile robot automation within the reach of traditional sub-contract engineering businesses.
