Cell manufacturing for all machine shops with NO increase in labour.
The XYZ 2-OP, a portable VMC designed and built to liberate your more expensive machine tools from the every day drudgery of ”second operations”. The XYZ 2-OP features the ”easy to use” ProtoTRAK® control.
The XYZ 2-OP is so easy to use that all workshops will be able to achieve ”cell set ups” quickly and easily improving production without the need to employ extra skilled labour.

The most expensive item on any machine shopfloor is its manpower!
The capital cost of a machine tool should be amortised over its reasonable life of say 7-10 years so, a £50,000 machine would cost £5,000 to £7,000 per year. However, an operator costs around £40,000 a year, every year, so that person needs to be kept busy. It is here that the XYZ 2-OP comes into its own. At a cost of around £25,000 the XYZ 2-OP increases productivity by adding a spindle and creating a cell operated by one person, thereby maximising the available labour hours and reducing manufacturing costs.
Everyone knows that in a production environment making masses of the same item that running a cell is the most efficient use of labour. But in a subcontract environment if the job is only a few hundred components or a few days’ work it’s not worth setting up a cell moving heavy machines around. 2-OP addresses this issue and allows you to quickly set up a cell so smaller batches or where a job might only last 3 or 4 days can be machined with “cell” efficiency dramatically reducing the time on the whole job.
If you’re using a ProtoTRAK or any machine, quite a lot of the “expensive” operator time can be just waiting for a machining cycle to finish. With 2-OP they can use this time productively and almost free. The XYZ 2-OP portability addresses this issue and allows for this quicker production.
With a footprint of only 775mm x 1380mm the 2-OP can easily fit into the tightest of spaces.
