We provide free training with any CNC machine purchase.  Our Applications Team of experienced, time served machinists are fully trained by us to help you get the most from your machine tool purchase.

Next day servicing

With 18 service engineers based nationwide, if your machine needs attention we aim to be with you the same or next day. We have an electronic service system where information is sent to engineers as soon as it is reported leading to quick responses.
