G14 Fabricator of the Year Polyframe Group has taken delivery of a new Stuga ZX4 sawing and machining centre at the Halifax factory. It’s part of an on-going multi-million pound investment programme designed to ensure that Polyframe maintains its impressive growth and keep up with increased demand. The new saw centre, the seventh at Polyframe Halifax, has a capacity of around 1,000 windows per week.
Chris Watson, Group Managing Director, comments: “Polyframe has been successful in helping small-to-medium sized fabricators exit manufacturing and grow. But we’ve only been able to do that by investing in capacity to support their growth. The Stuga Saw is a very versatile machine. It can produce all the required saw cuts and preps. The rotary tooling system creates incredible flexibility for prepping, profile by profile and operation by operation. The preps can be placed anywhere within 360 degrees and it’s all controlled by the machine’s software, with the graphic interface of the system making adjustment of the position accurate and simple”.
The new saw centre is the latest addition to Polyframe’s investment in the Halifax factory. Over the past three years the company has also installed an automatic frame line and an automatic sash line. The introduction of the saw centre will ensure quality and service remain at the current high levels.
