Fast, reliable and cost efficient – these are the qualities associated with Elumatec’s new SBZ 610 profile machine centre. Within today’s economic climate, door and window fabricators are facing rising costs and tighter profile margins and the need to improve efficiency in the manufacturing process is paramount. Selecting the most appropriate profile machine centre in terms of cost efficiency and effectiveness can save both time and money, as Richard Hackett from Vale Windows discovered when he installed the new SBZ 610 machine.
“From a standing start in August 2004, we commenced our programme with an initial investment of approximately £200,000 which included the latest welding, cleaning and beading machinery,” he says. “Phase II is now complete and this has seen us installing the new Elumatec Cutting Centre SBZ 610. This will enable our capacity to be in excess of our projected capacity of 500 frames per week in 2006. Right through from point of sale, ordering, delivery and commissioning the total service has been second to none which saw our cutting centre installed with minimum disruption.”
Elumatec UK has designed its new SBZ 610 profile machine centre to help fabricators to increase their efficiency. It is particular suited to the smaller fabricator as the SBZ 610 requires only one person to operate, thus eliminating the cost and time associated with sourcing skilled operatives. The value of the machine lies in its ability to simply be turned up, down or off dependent upon the workload levels required - there is no wastage in operation and no costs incurred when less work is required.
“Following five years of consistent increasing manufacturing using mainly Elumatec machinery at the company’s Mansfield site, it was an easy choice when opening a second manufacturing facility at Manchester to select a machinery partner,” concludes Richard Hackett. “With Elumatec’s vast product range, the company has comfortably satisfied our business needs and will continue to do so through future growth.”
As world market leaders in the production of profile machine centres and a huge range of equipment for the fabrication industry, Elumatec produces a solution for any application using the latest technology and state of the art production facilities to serve the needs of the industry.
