Two fully automated lines
5th December 2017
Emplas has taken receipt of a second SCHIRMER machining and cutting centre delivered as part of the G-Award winning fabricator’s continuous investment programme.
The Schirmer uses profile scanning technology to position cuts and routs to within 0.3mm. It also means Emplas can convert a 6m bar length into a fully prepped frame within seconds.
Operations director Ray Sinclair said: “A second Schirmer gives us capacity but most importantly allows us to continue to improve product quality. It gives us incredible precision in routing and cutting, which improves welds and the accuracy of fixings and which ultimately allows us to deliver a better product to our customers.”
The Schirmer comes as part of a £1.4million spend by the fabricator on new machinery, which also includes a new Rotox eight-head welding and cleaning line, giving it two fully automated lines.
