Les Robbins (Electrical)

Les Robbins, has been in the Machine Tool industry for nearly 45 years, it must be said that he is very aware of the requirements of CNC machine tool operators, due to a background of knowledge and experience gained over this period.
Having started his working career in 1970 at T.S. Harrison & Sons Ltd as a craft engineering apprentice, he went on to higher technical training backed by years of experience within the field of electrical and electronic engineering relating specifically to machine tools. Both in the production of machinery and later in the service department he had spent 34 years in the industry before starting his own business in 2004.
Based on the experience gained during all this time and as a result of 29 years using a succession of ever more advanced personal computers to aid his work, Les naturally progressed to writing machine tool related software. EditComm came into existence through this and due to the problems Les was called out to deal with involving other Editing & Communications software linked to CNC machines.

Customer Testimonials

  • In my opinion the depth of knowledge that Les has on the electrical side and John has on the mechanical side of the Harrison/Colchester range is second to none. This results in solving a problem quickly with minimum down time and without doubt it is the most cost effective solution to keeping the machines in prime condition.

    John Waterworth - Alan Gordon Engineering Co Ltd - Chorley Lancashire.      www.alangordoneng.co.uk
  • We have used Les for a number of years now to look after our Alpha / Tornado / Multiturn lathes and have always found his service to be prompt and reliable. As a previous employee of Harrison he has excellent knowledge of the products and is considerably cheaper than using Harrison direct. He generally gets to site within 24 hours from our request.

  • When a breakdown occurs on our CNC lathes it always happens when the machine is in the middle of an urgent job.
    I am sure everyone is the same whether mechanical or electronic, we have been back working in super quick time, thanks to Les Robbins CNC Services, and Hanging Heaton Machine Tool Services.
    With 5 Harrison/Colchester CNC lathes of various ages, we know we can count on a first class service.
