Check Out Bedford CNC's Latest Acquisition

Colin Griffiths of MTDCNC is with Andy Soos of Bedford CNC to talk about some of his recent acquisitions in DMG MORI machines. Andy, who once couldn’t even think of having such powerful tools, got in touch with DMG MORI and received a proposal for three machines: Two 5-axis and one CMX 800 V 3-axis milling machine. Fast forward 14 months, Andy says the CMX 800 V offers brilliant performance with quick, easy programming and setup. Though the footprint is certainly bigger, the machine offers a much bigger envelope. Find out more from Andy about the amazing investment in DMG MORI equipment.
