Mills CNC to showcase 19 high-performance Doosan lathes, machining centres and mill-turn machines – including seven new models – on its stand at MACH.

Mills CNC, the exclusive distributor of Doosan machine tools in the UK and Ireland, is exhibiting 19 Doosan machine tools at MACH 2016.

The company’s stand (Hall 5 Stand 5430) is the one of largest Mills has ever booked at MACH. It is also one of the biggest stands at this year’s Show.

Mills will be showcasing an impressive cross-section of its Doosan lathes and turning centres, 3- and 5-axis vertical machining centres, horizontal machining centres and mill-turn, multi-tasking machines on its stand – many of which are new machines making their UK and/or MACH debuts.

Says Kevin Gilbert, Mills CNC’s managing director:

“Doosan machine tools set new benchmarks for performance, productivity, reliability and best value. The machines we’re taking to MACH highlight all of these attributes.”

Concludes Kevin Gilbert:

 “We can confidently say that our stand at MACH and the machines being showcased will pull in the crowds. Few if any other stands will be exhibiting such a broad range of technologies, and the fact that we’re also launching a number of new machines into the UK at the show is another reason why Mills’ stand (Hall 5 Stand 5430) will be many visitors’ first (if not their only) port of call.”
