The TWR Group has chosen a complete package of Emmegi machinery for its brand new factory in Peterlee, County Durham which is set to open this summer.
The company has purchased a new Phantomatic X6 four axis machining centre, a Precision TS2 electronic twin head saw and a taping machine, end miller, crimper and tables for its second factory, where it will be exclusively manufacturing bi-fold doors.
These are the first Emmegi machines supplied to The TWR Group which has ambitions to become the UK’s leading medium sized fabricator in aluminium.
Managing Director Terry Richardson chose Emmegi because he wanted a package of machines which would give his new factory the state of the art manufacturing capability to set it apart from the competition, and which would also effectively future proof his operation so that it can easily increase capacity.
The Emmegi machines are renowned for their quality and performance, but the service from the dedicated UK team was also an important factor in the buying decision.
Terry Richardson said: “We’re delighted to have purchased the new machinery from Emmegi and the service they have given us has been first class.
The new machinery will take pride of place in our soon to be opened 25,000 sq ft factory. This will allow us to continue offering an unrivalled service and great products to our loyal installer base.”
TWR plans to add Synseal’s new WarmCore aluminium clad profile system to its portfolio of bi-fold doors, and the Phantomatic X6 is the perfect machine for this because it has a fourth axis with a rotating head which can carry out the specialist routing required on WarmCore at 45°.
The X6 has already been chosen by a number of WarmCore fabricators and is an increasingly popular machining centre with a 7.7m work area which can handle large volumes of work flow.
The Precision TS2 electronic twin-head saw with front blade offers angled cutting to 45° inwards and 15° outwards and can cut to 280 positions per degree.
A patented innovation by Emmegi achieves both virtual rotation of the cutting units on the saw and absolute rigidity so that positioning and profile blocking are always accurate.
Terry Richardson believes that his decision to use just one supplier for all of the machines makes perfect sense. He adds: “Emmegi made the whole process very straightforward and cost effective. The sales advice and ordering process suited us perfectly and the team of installation engineers have done a great job.”
