Roseview has bolstered the production of its Rose Collection of heritage PVC-U sash windows with the addition of a second AMC602 machining centre from Kombimatec.

Tim Bygrave, the Buckinghamshire based fabricator’s production director explained: “Ultimate Rose is easily the most authentic, timber alternative sash window on the market, and our Kombimatec AMC602 machining centres form an integral part of its manufacture.

“We ordered a second machine in order to keep up with high levels of current and anticipated future demand. In fact, they’ve proved to be so popular with the production team here at Roseview, that we’ve named them Mario and Luigi after the Nintendo characters – they just get things done!”

As standard the AMC602 includes features such as 4 x controlled axes, adjustable pneumatic clamps, a 5.5Kw electro-spindle and an automatic tool change system. It also comes with a comprehensive options list, including a bar code reader, automatic clamp positioning, offline programming software, a larger tool cabinet, and a double workstation enabling manufacturers to tailor the machine to their exact requirements.

“Not only have our AMC602 centres proven to be very reliable, but we’ve also enjoyed first class support from David Parsons and his team at Kombimatec, from sales to installation, through to commissioning and operation,” continued Tim.

“In the current climate, where the industry is experiencing exceptionally high levels of demand for premium and heritage style products, being able to rely on ‘Mario and Luigi’ for consistent, high quality output is invaluable. We really couldn’t be without them.”
