Pig farm equipment supplier and manufacturer Quality Equipment has invested over £75,000 in a new saw and automatic welder, specially designed to deal with plastic.
The Woolpit company’s managing director Graham Baker said: “This sophisticated equipment will enable the company to improve delivery times and offer greater flexibility with made-to-measure panels.”
The saw provides accurate cutting while the welder delivers strong joins with a high-quality finish.
The machine can weld panels 4m wide and virtually any length, including honeycomb Paneltim panels, so they can be made to dimensions to suit farmers’ individual needs.
The new machines have enabled the company to achieve treble output while improving quality and uniformity.
