Star's Open House 2012

This autumn we will be hosting our customary Open House event at our UK Headquarters in Melbourne, Derbyshire.  It will be taking place on the 16th, 17th and 18th of October, 2012.

Star will take this opportunity to showcase a selection of our sliding headstock lathes including the SW-20, SB-16E II, SB-20E, SR-32JN, and the newly upgraded SR-10J, along with a selection of FMB bar feed units. Also, be sure to catch an exclusive demonstration of our brand new machine, the innovative SR-20R IV.

The event will be relevant to all companies wishing to see the benefits of sliding head versus fixed head technology and the advantages in eliminating multiple operations. As our machines are well-known for their accuracy, quality, and lights-out capabilities, this event will be an ideal opportunity to brush up on your knowledge of this area of technology. Lunch will be provided on each day.

We are pleased to once again welcome the support of our usual partner companies. We will be joined by mainstays Emmaco, LNS Turbo Systems, and MEC Wash as well as a selection of tooling companies including Sandvik, Iscar, Rainford Precision, and Floyd Automatic Tooling. Also attending will be mist extraction specialists Filtermist, material suppliers Wieland UK, oil providers Speciality Lubricants, and Pumps & Equipment, the specialists in high pressure coolant systems.

Presentations are planned throughout the three-day event, including a range of seminars on the latest developments in carbide cutting tools and how they can reduce production times by up to 30%. A finance seminar is also planned, focusing on how to capitalize on cost-effective funding to assist your next purchase.

If you are interested in attending, then please give us a call on 01332 864455. Be sure to book your place!

We look forward to seeing you there.
