NIKKEN Innovation Centre Europe - NICe

The Spirit of Innovation

The NIKKEN Innovation Centre for Europe is a new facility built to provide innovative solutions to the manufacturing industry’s toughest problems. The Centre demonstrates Nikken’s capabilities on seven machining centres, which cover a diverse cross section of the industry. Such industries include small to medium Engineering Manufacturers, High Precision part production to the rigid machines required to take heavy cuts in Titanium and Inconel for the Aerospace industry.

The building contains a 30-seat conference hall which can be used to house meetings and training seminars.


Our machine capability expands across the majority of possible spindle configurations: HSK63A, 40 TAPER DIN6971, BT40, BT30 and Dual Contact BT50; and most controllers: Fanuc 31i, Siemens 840D, Heidenhain iTNC-530 and Brother CNC-C00. Iindividual machines also incorporate Nikken Rotary tables for 4th or 5th Axis capability.
