Selway Machine Tool Co., a premier manufacturing solutions house opened up their modern Utah showroom to the public. Customers drove from as far as 3 hours away for live machine demonstrations on Matsuura’s MX-330, the Eurotech Rapido B436Y2, and Hwacheon’s Cutex 240B SMC. Autodesk CAD/CAM software was showcased with factory rep demonstrations and training classes.
“It was a fantastic event” stated Andrew Hogue, Utah territory sales manager when asked about the open house. “We had over 100 attendees over the course of 2 days. Customers had a great time interacting with our application engineers & factory reps from Eurotech, Matsuura, and Autodesk. One attendee stayed at the event all day watching demos, eating lunch, & participating in the free afternoon HSMWorks software class. It’s great to be able to provide a place where the Utah manufacturing community can network, learn some tricks, or just hang out and talk shop.”
Below is a list of the featured products presented at the event:
Matsuura MX-330: Compact, ergonomic, 5-axis, high speed machining center comes with a 15K BT40 Maxia Spindle, 60 tool changer & a 250mm rotary table. This machine was cutting a single blade aluminum part programmed in Autodesk HSMWorks software & showcased CAMPlete’s live machine simulation during the cut.
Eurotech Rapido B436Y2: 10 Axis turn/mill machining center with (2) 12 station live turrets, (2) 7000rpm C-axis Spindles, 1.97” of Y-Axis Stroke, 1.5” Bar Capacity, capable of having 3 tools in the cut simultaneously. The Rapido was cutting a muzzle brake in under 3 minutes.

Of the company’s recent move eastward, President Bill Selway said, “We were offered the opportunity to represent most of the CNC machining center lines we carry for the Utah territory and jumped right in. It’s progress. Selway started in Northern California, spread to Washington, Oregon, southern California and Nevada; with it’s diversified manufacturing market, Utah was the logical next step for us.”
To solidify a position in Utah as a thought leader for manufacturing solutions Selway acquired a 3500sq ft showroom just outside of downtown Salt Lake City. This facility will be used as an office for sales/service personnel, as well as a showroom for live machine demos, & training classes.
The Selway Machine Tool Co. Utah showroom is located at 2562 West Custer Road, Salt Lake City, Utah 84104
