600 UK, a leading manufacturer and distributor of automated machine tools within the UK and 150 countries Worldwide, has partnered with FANUC to increase the competitiveness of its Colchester and Harrison CNC lathes.
FANUC identified an opportunity for 600 UK to improve the performance of its current CNC machines, by migrating from the FANUC Series 0i-TD control system to the latest generation of FANUC Controls, the FANUC Series 0i-F, combined with FANUC’s new range Alpha-i & Beta-i Servo motors, Spindle Motors and Amplifiers, giving higher performance and higher specification as standard.
The FANUC Series 0i-TF control system is higher in specification as standard, and provides 600 UK’s CNC machines with more features and functions helping the end user to reduce programming time with its industry standard shop floor programming system: Manual Guide i ((MGi), and Alpha operation modes), while helping to reduce machine downtime further and increase safety features on all of the machines. The FANUC Series 0i-TF Control system also enables 600 UK to reduce hardware content, helping to keep build cost down and increase factory output.
Chris Sumner, managing director, FANUC UK, said: “We’ve been a supplier of 600 UK for over 30 years. The company has sold over 10,000 of our units to date and it’s a great pleasure to continue our work with them.”
Mike Berry, managing director, 600 UK said: “We chose FANUC for its expertise as the leading supplier of world class CNC Control Systems, and for its after-sales support which helps provide our customers around the world with a reliable and effective global network. The upgrades to the products we sell and the backing of such a large global company that is focused on supporting UK businesses and innovation, makes us well placed to grow within the CNC market.”
