CET Means Business

CET announces more investment in machinery to help strengthen its position as one of the UK’s leading glass processing companies.

Earlier this year, CET Glass announced major investment in a new Bystronic high-speed IGU line as part of its long-term strategy for growth, helping to increase capacity by 30% as well as improving product quality.This was in addition to improvements made in its manufacturing processes and expansive employee development programmes, including Manufacturing of Excellence lean training to all staff personnel.

CET is pleased to announce further investment in equipment with the introduction of a new laminating system, to help manage an anticipated increase in demand as a result of the changes to the building regulations following the introduction of the new Approved Document Q. This governs security standards required on windows and doors and covers new buildings, extensions or where there is a material change of use of a building, with effect from 1 October 2015. This is expected to increase the number of windows that will need to be specified with laminated glass.

The new laminating system combines two machines for float/laminated cutting with soft coat edge deletion using the Hegla Twin Edge Deletion System (patent pending). The system is made up of an Optimax Float Table with automatic belt positioning and the EcoLam Plus Laminated Table with automatic measuring, working in combination with the Optimax/EcoLam Plus computer systems. The EcoLam Plus also includes unloading arms for large laminated cut pieces, float cutting is from 3mm to 12mm and the laminated glass can be up to 6mm + 6mm with interlayer.

Maria Ludlow, customer operations manager at CET, said “This investment further underlines our commitment to developing CET and providing an outstanding service for our customers. By increasing our manufacturing capacity, quality and capabilities we continue to have a positive impact on customer service levels.”
