Joe Hague, Group Managing Director of Promac explains what visitors can expect: “This exciting development in machinery design is the next step in the evolution of window manufacturing.The combined cleaning and welding platform provides a completely new way to manufacture window and door frames with exacting quality and increased strength. The unique process combines traditional process with state of the art software and hardware that allows for the precise placement of the welded sprew delivering a corner joint without any grove.
“The patented ceramic heater plate’s zip weld the corner joints shut delivering increased strength performance with up to 200% improved productivity when compared with other traditional manufacturing process. The machinery platform is completely self contained with onboard swarf extraction and automatic heater plate cleaning, reducing the need for manual intervention and housekeeping. The quality of the corner weld is simply breathtaking and needs to be seen to be believed and is especially geared towards foiled, laminated and coloured profiles whether bevelled or sculptured. Where required a feature grove can be automatically inserted and is controlled by the highly intuitive software.
“Graf Synergy’s CAD Scan software maps the profile chamber configuration directly from a scanned photocopier image which allows the operator to work with actual dimensions rather than profile related drawings. Production control data is input directly at the machines side or via USB or Ethernet network. For maintenance and technical support the machine is equipped with comprehensive diagnostic software as well as remote internet access.
“These are just some of the features and benefits related to the SL4FF that guarantees measurable, tangible results. Its unique design delivers a new way and sets the standard in virtually every way. We look forward to showing visitors to stand 144 the New SL4FF along with all our other equipment we have to offer.”
