As we enter the mid month of 2016, the staff at Sub CNC are learning the ropes on Citizens latest L32 series Sliding head machine centre. First on display at the Citizen-Miyano Open house in the Autumn of 2015, the machine was offered in 4 configurations from 7 Axis standard layout, to full 9 Axis including 2 “Y” axis slides and a fully programmable “B” axis.
Fast forward to the Spring and the opportunity to supply a family of components came. An additional 32mm capacity would be required and after seeing the flexibility of the Type XII 9 Axis top of the range (You Tube demo Here) machine at Mach 2016, the order was placed on the spot.
4 weeks later the machine, complete with comprehensive tooling package, fully programmable “B” Axis and High Pressure coolant system, was delivered to our Bedfordshire site.
