This event holds special significance as it commemorates the 40th year that Miyano’s products, renowned fixed-head lathe manufacturer, have graced the UK and Ireland markets. This legacy dates back to its initial presence facilitated by the former sales agent Macro Machine Tools. Since 2010, the brand has flourished as an integral part of Citizen Holdings, a manufacturing titan known for offering Cincom sliding-head lathes, alongside an array of turning machines incorporating cutting-edge auto-loading systems, facilitating swift material and parts handling.

Citizen Machinery UK operates as a subsidiary of the illustrious Japanese manufacturing group. It caters to the British and Irish markets while also serving as the distribution hub for Citizen machinery reaching France, Spain, Portugal, Scandinavia, the Middle East, Africa, and Australia.

Managing Director Edward James highlighted the dual celebration at the heart of the open house, stating, “We will not only be celebrating the 40th anniversary of Miyano’s presence in this market, but also seven years since the launch of our ground-breaking LFV (low frequency vibration) programmable chipbreaking software.” James further noted that this revolutionary technology has propelled the company to become the preeminent supplier of CNC bar-fed lathes across the UK and Ireland.

The open house will also spotlight the Miyano Eco Function, an innovation aimed at optimizing energy usage during lathe operations. This smart feature promises cost savings and enhanced machine performance, in line with the industry’s commitment to achieving Net Zero emissions targets.

Attendees can expect the participation of a variety of partner companies integral to the manufacturing landscape, offering solutions ranging from work holding and cutting tools to parts handling, barfeeds, and production control software. Additionally, a Red Letter Day prize draw will be a focal point, offering visitors a chance to win a £1,500 experience along with hotel accommodations.
