Intorex Open House Exhibition A Huge Success



To mark the opening of their new factory, including a dedicated showroom and training area, Catalan based Intorex recently held a 2 day Open House Exhibition which attracted 60 customers from countries all over Europe in addition to visitors from as far afield as the United States, Canada and Australia. Intorex took this opportunity to showcase 5 models of 4 and 5 axis CNC machining centres, along with CNC lathes, dowel making machinery and other items of associated woodturning equipment. There where also live demonstrations of SolidCAM software and an all new 3D laser scanning system.

Other than a tour of the new premises, the main attraction for the visiting customers were the CNC machining centres and lathes. Intorex now produce 3 different models of 'between centers' CNC machining centres which have the capability to shape, mill, drill, turn and sand while the component is held between a head stock and tailstock. This makes this range of machines ideal for the production of a wide variety of solid wood furniture and stair parts with the ability to easily create some new and unique designs, which normally would be very difficult to produce on conventional fixed bed CNC machines. Dedicated for producing turned parts Intorex have semi automatic and fully automatic CNC lathes which can optionally be equipped with a 4th CNC controlled axis meaning a router / milling head for twisting / fluting can be mounted or alternatively a sanding head which allows for the turned component to come off the lathe totally finished.

Guy Stanley of JJ Smith who is the UK product manager for the Intorex range commented "The Open House was excellent in every way. It was held in a very relaxing atmosphere with customers able to inspect machines and see them run at their leisure, with all of the Intorex sales staff and technicians on hand to assist with any questions the customers had. The visitors who attended from the UK were extremely impressed with the Intorex set up, the way the event was organised, the first class hospitality and not least the actual machines they had come to see". Intorex export manager Lluis Teixido adds "We were absolutely delighted so many customers, old and new, took the time and effort to attend our Open House Exhibition and view for the first time our new showroom and manufacturing facility, which we are extremely proud of. The significant investment in this new facility, along with our continued commitment to product development makes us feel we are very well placed to meet the future demands of our ever increasing customer base".
