SECO 'Inspires' Engineers With Open House Event

Added to MTDCNC by Seco Tools (UK) Ltd on 26 September 2014

This week, the MTDCNC team made its first visit to the new facility of Seco in Alcester to attend the cutting tool manufacturers' 'Inspiration Through Innovation' event. With 16 partner exhibitors and a traffic through-flow in excess of 300 individuals over the two days (24th-25th Sept), the Seco 'Inspiration Through Innovation' showcase was a huge success for the cutting tool manufacturer and its technology partners.

From a Seco standpoint, the event was the company's opportunity to welcome customers from both Seco and its innovation partners  to view the impressive new site that has been open for little over 18 months. With demonstrations from CAM specialists Delcam and Edgecam; workholding equipment on show from Leader Chuck, Erowa, Roemheld, Nikken and Thame Workholding plus specialists from Fuchs, Geo Kingsbury, GF machining Solutions, GTMA, Majenta PLM, Pumps & Equipment Ltd and Renishaw, the celebration of manufacturing excellence had something to capture the imagination of every engineer in attendance.

Such is the kudos of Seco within the industry, Mills CNC brought one of its best selling machines, the Doosan Lynx 22LSY turning centre to the 'Inspiration Through Innovation' event. Cutting an EN8 mild steel demo part, the Lynx was highlighting the benefit of its twin spindle 12 tool station machine when tooled with Seco indexible insert tooling. Alongside this, another key partner to Seco, Mazak, brought its Integrex i100 Bartac-ST multi-tasking turning centre to conduct ghost cutting to show the flexibility and capability of its new machine.

Commenting upon the extremely successful technology spectacle, Seco Tools OEM Project Manager Mr David Magnall said: 'Our new facility is the result of a long term vision to build an open plan environment that encourages a collaborative platform, not only internally but with our solution delivery partners. We have worked strenuously to involve key partners that have a direct synergy with our business to ensure they all exhibit products that are complimentary to delivering solutions for the end user. Unlike many other events, this fundamental principle has truly engaged the visitor and highlighted how our collabrorative platform has given visiting engineers the solutions and tools to improve their processes and productivity.'

As part of its collaborative partnership platform, Seco delivered a seminar program over the two days that included insights from experts on machining titanium, stainless steel, carbon fibre composites and nickel based alloys, Jetstream tooling, custom made tools, Steadyline tooling technology and Component Engineered Tooling (CET). These best-practice seminars were then followed by demonstrations to emphasise the practical implications of the theoretical seminars. With a 130 seat capacity seminar theatre, each seminar was packed to the rafters with engineers with a strong appetite for each subject matter that was featured.

'As we approach our 50th year in the UK, we are persistently building our collaborative platform to draw attention to the ever increasing manufacturing benefits to Seco customers and the customers of our collaboration partners. The 'Inspiration Through Innovation' program has not only inspired our customers to acquaint themselves with the latest technology, it has also inspired the event exhibitors to create greater synergies to deliver this technology,' concludes Mr Magnall.
