It’s Show Season!
Show season is always busy for us; from the Precision Machining Technology Show in Columbus to the NRA Convention in Houston, TX to the Eastec Show in Springfield, MA the Eurotech engineering team has been busier than usual. The reason is Turnkey’d Machines – more and more customers are approaching us at the shows and asking for their machines to arrive turnkey’d…gaining the competitive edge with the machine arriving with the part made to print and ready to run! Be sure to see our 3 top selling machines at EASTEC (inlcuding the world's fastest machine - the Rapido!) at CNC System's Booth #1218.

Eurotech Elite 735 SLY The Eurotech Elite 735 SLY, 2.75” bar capacity, 6-axis turn/mill center: delivering up to 25-35% faster cycle times than traditional multi-axis turning centers and providing unmatched ROI. This 735SLY completes complex parts in one operation; load redundant tools for unattended machining; eliminate set-up time. The 735 turn-mill center combining the facilities of both a lathe and a 5-axis machining center (X, Z, Y, C, B) accomplishing off-center milling-drilling operations that are impossible to complete with C-axis only. Utilizing EGS tool system allows up to 96 tools - More Y-axis stroke than any machine in its class!
"We didn't believe it until they proved it. We since have bought more Eurotechs - they are much faster than the big name generic brands." - Bob Coster, Nolte Precise

Eurotech SwissTurn (sliding headstock CNC) models are available from 12mm to 42mm: most models with patented B-axis rotation to machine parts in the main or sub spindle.

THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY OF MACHINE TOOL CONSUMPTION WORLDWIDE
The Good: USA consumption increase up 19% from 2011 was much better than any of the top 20 consuming countries and #2 in the world in total consumption. Also good is that the next best in the top 10 consuming countries only increased 2% and most of the countries in the top dropped significantly.
The Bad and Scary: Even though it dropped for the first time in several years, China Still consumes more than the top 9 countries put together. The Hope: the USA compared to most of the large consuming countries has demographics on its side which history has proven is the best economic indicator, while countries like china and Japan face a huge challenge in this regard. We have also seen a continued shift in manufacturing in the USA towards technology that flattens the effect of wage differences in competing with lower paid countries.
