Star Discovery EVENT

Star Discovery EVENT

Added to MTDCNC by Star Micronics GB Limited on 16 April 2015

Star Micronics Ltd are excited to announce the launch of a new type of event for 2015.

Beginning this coming June, Star will be holding a Sliding Head Discovery Event to showcase the abilities of their sliding head lathes while educating users in a range of techniques to enhance and improve production of their mill-turn machinery.

The Discovery Event is intended to bring new knowledge to sliding head users of all levels of experience. Newcomers to the field will get a great introduction to using sliding head technology from some of the most respected engineers in the industry, while seasoned users will benefit from the Star team’s insider knowledge and methods.

The first event is to be held on the 9th, 10th and 11th of June 2015 at Star’s Head Office in Melbourne, Derbyshire. There will be several Star machines on display producing components from 2mm to 42mm diameter with lengths ranging from 10mm right up to 1,000mm. Our engineering team will be on hand throughout the event to provide technical support and to discuss your company’s manufacturing requirements.

Alongside the Star machines, metrology specialists Keyence, OGP and Renishaw will also be exhibiting their latest 'shop floor' measurement technology. Cutting tool supplier WNT will be showcasing their comprehensive range of sliding head tooling and for complex programming applications Delcam will be demonstrating their PartMAKER CAD/CAM software.

Star will also be running daily training sessions on their user-friendly programming software, NC Assist. This conversational program editing software enables NC programs to be written easily with minimal keyboard inputs, which reduces programming errors and significantly improves programming efficiency.

By making their knowledge and technological know-how available to all, Star are paving the way for a brighter future in engineering.
