Siemens UK & Ireland is celebrating the success of long-standing distribution partner XYZ Machine Tools as it delivers its 500th machine with the SINUMERIK 828D panel-based CNC control.

The machine tools specialist supplies technologies to more than 5000 companies across the UK and has been a Siemens partner for more than 12 years. As part of this partnership, it exclusively fits SINUMERIK CNC technology in its standardised milling and turning machine systems.

In addition to the successful delivery of the latest version of the 828D control – a tailor-made software system which offers enhanced functionality and incorporates hardware that operates two times faster than previous models – XYZ will soon be incorporating the enhanced 840D into its offering. The new 840D features a 19 inch screen and both the 828D and 840D offer user-friendly shop mill and shop turn interfaces.

Founded in 1984, XYZ delivers CNC machine tools primarily for sub contract and tool room operations, as well as to the aerospace and motorsport industries.

Nigel Atherton, managing director at XYZ Machine Tools, comments: “Reaching key product milestones in our partnership, such as the delivery of the 500th machine using the latest 828D control, is testament to the quality of control technology, simplicity of programming and expert support we receive from Siemens. This is something which drew us to the Siemens partnership programme in the first place. With many years of industry experience, we’re committed to the thorough testing of machine solutions and the SINUMERIK controls offer a tailor made system that enables us to deliver ultimate reliability, operational efficiency and value for money to our customers.”

Siemens UK & Ireland’s partner programme ensures high-quality service and expertise through ongoing technical and product support.

Andy Hodgson, general manager - Motion Control, Digital Factory, Siemens UK & Ireland, adds: “The 828D sets a benchmark in delivering reliable and precise machining operations and its success is demonstrated through XYZ’s milestone. As a Siemens partner, machine operators can assure their customers that they only use the highest quality solutions and demonstrate their commitment to industry best practice. We look forward to supporting XYZ Machine Tools on the delivery of its next machines.”
