Joint Managing Directors Glenn Bicknell and Alan Taylor’s desire to exceed their customers’ requirements and meet an ever increasing demand for MiGlass products, lead to an investment to purchase an Intermac ‘F Series Double Edger’, a machine which profiles and finishes all four edges in one process.
“That flexibility enables us to process low or high volume components, mainly due to the instantaneous changeover for thickness and size. The software is very easy to use which also allows us to process different finishes. It’s been particularly useful for example, in the manufacture of UV bonded cabinets, which wouldn’t have been viable with a single edger.”
“At five times the speed of a single edger”, enthused Alan “it was the biggest step-change the company has ever invested in and it’s been a huge factor in being able to compete with overseas suppliers, allowing us to gain market share.”
