Pioneers in Machining Technology
The range of travelling-column, horizontal-spindle milling machines and gantry-type, vertical-spindle machining centres built by the Italian firm Mecof (www.emco-mecof.it/en/
), an Emco group member, is now being sold and serviced in the UK and Ireland by NCMT (www.ncmt.co.uk
) under a new, sole agency agreement.
It is the first non-Japanese range of metalcutting machine tools to be sold by NCMT, which is best known for its agency ranges of Japanese-built machines from Makino, Okuma and Okamoto. The Mecof portfolio dovetails well with these small to medium size machines, as the entry point is 4 metres in X, rising to 20 metres.
Mecof machines are widely used in the aerospace, automotive, rail, mould making, prototyping, power generation and machine building industries. Existing users in Britain and Ireland can contact NCMT for spares and service, the latter provided by UK engineers that have already been factory trained.
