Star Micronics yields enormous success from October Open House

Added to MTDCNC by Star Micronics GB Limited on 13 November 2013

The recent Open House event at Star Micronics GB’s Derbyshire headquarters has yielded enormous success for the company. From the 22nd to the 24th of October, Star opened their doors to customers and clients to showcase their ever-expanding range of sliding head Swiss-type lathes.

The event’s main attraction was the UK subsidiary’s unveiling of Star’s latest technology – the impressive SV-38 R machine was the consistent centre of attention, along with several other new machines including the SB-12R and SB-20R. Representatives from many partner companies of Star GB were also on hand to provide information concerning tooling, accessories, finance, and other aspects associated with the operation of sliding head machines.

The buzz around this new technology grew over the course of the three days and resulted in sliding head lathe orders totalling well over £1.5 million. One Scottish customer even showed their confidence in Star by investing in three SR-20J units, while a Midlands-based manufacturer purchased the rapid SW-20 to meet their demand for low cycle times. Another London-based company, who had been using a competitor’s machine for five years, plumped for Star’s flagship ST-38 machine after extensive evaluation.

Star GB is dedicated to supporting British manufacturing in every way possible; not only by continuously pushing the limits of sliding head technology, but also by providing affordable and effective servicing. The last five years have not been kind to UK manufacturers and precision engineers, so Star have retained their very competitive service rate, with no minimum charge – a very fair benefit for the level of expertise Star GB bring to the table, especially considering that our support team has grown greatly over the last 24 months.
