Global machinery experts elumatec have unveiled a revolutionary new product capable of producing uPVC frames with smooth, seamless corner welds.
The result of the fast-growing firm’s partnership with German uPVC specialists Sturtz, the Sturtz Contourline achieves the much sought-after seamless finish using tooling – a far quicker and more cost-effective method than the complex welding processes used by other machining products that strive for a similar effect.
“We’ve seen rocketing demand for this kind of high-end uPVC finish over the last few years,” commented elumatec UK Managing Director Phil Heavey. “Once, uPVC was seen as the poor cousin of more prestigious materials like aluminium and timber. Today, that’s completely changed. Manufacturers have made massive strides, and modern uPVC balances stylish and extremely versatile looks with performance that excels on all fronts.
With the Sturtz Contourline, we’re able to offer a fast, efficient and robustly-built machining product that gives fabricators the ability to capitalise on growing demand for premium uPVC – and do so far more cost-effectively than any other product on the market.”
The Sturtz Contourline is just the latest in a string of products elumatec can now exclusively supply to fabricators throughout the UK. The Sturtz FlexCentre 160 is a highly-advanced cutting and machining centre for uPVC window and door production. Boasting a 6-axis machining module and a triple sawing unit, it’s one of the most versatile products in its class, while the automatic preload of profile bars and off-load conveyor belt maximise productivity and efficiency.
The Sturtz TXR 3/2 Corner Transom Cleaner is a revolutionary machine that fully automates the cleaning of corners, transoms and crucifix welds. Spring-loaded knife units allow for unparalleled accuracy, while flexible tooling options allow the machine to be quickly adapted for different purposes.
The Sturtz VSM Turbo Welder is a high-speed vertical 4-point welder offering exceptional accuracy and high-temperature welding functionality that can reduce welding times by up to 30%.
