Colchester lathes education installations

Not only will 600 UK exhibit benchmark Colchester and Harrison lathes in Hall 5 and Pratt Burnerd Chucks in Hall 4, but they have also invested heavily in the MACH Learning and Development: Apprentices at Work Zone.  

Within this zone on Stand 4776, 600 UK will exhibit the world’s number one manual education lathe, the Colchester Student, alongside the exciting new Harrison EziTurn electronic lathe.  The EziTurn has been designed specifically for education and training, effectively bridging the gap between manual and CNC turning, which for some students, can be a daunting leap.   

Further increasing their presence, 600 UK will also promote the Clausing range of milling, drilling, sawing and grinding machines. This, new to the UK, range of machine tools has already enjoyed huge success in North America, the Middle East and Australasia. 

The Clausing brand of non-turning machines means that 600 UK can further meet the ever increasing turnkey requirements demanded by colleges and universities for the highest quality machine tools required to meet the needs of the engineering curriculum.  

“Colchester and Harrison have always focussed on education and training when developing their lathe ranges, where they have always been considered the benchmark. However, it is imperative that they are manufactured robustly to also meet the demanding standards required within an industrial setting.”  says 600 UK Managing Director, Mike Berry.  

“MACH has always had a great worldwide reputation for industrial and educational oriented products which continues to grow apace.  We firmly believe that 600 UK, as manufacturers of some of the best educational engineering products in the world, should be there to support the MTA and the MACH exhibition”.  

 MTA CEO James Selka DL, said “We are grateful to 600 UK for throwing their support behind MACH 2016. Education and training is integral to the continued growth of our industry and having high quality equipment that is specifically designed as teaching aids working on site will further demonstrate that advanced engineering is an accessible career choice.”
