Timber merchant buys latest cutting edge technology
A leading Bradford timber merchant has invested in the latest cutting edge technology – to keep it at the forefront of its market.
Arnold Laver Timber World has invested in a Weinig Powermat moulder with a 12 inch capability – the first of its kind in the UK.
Based at Laver’s Manningham Sawmills, it will ensure the company can cater for all of its customers’ demands, as they ask for faster deliveries, one-off profiles and best quality.
The hi-tech machine has seven tool holders and can machine 12 inch wide timber, the new powerlock tooling reduces change over and downtime, greatly improving productivity.
Besides the Powermat 1000, Timber World has also bought the supporting tool room equipment which includes a Rondamat 960 profile grinder and Opti Control measuring stand.
Arnold Laver Timber World’s operation’s director Mark Hay explained: “We have already seen an improvement in the moulding quality thanks to the Weinig Powermat. This cutting edge equipment means we can give customers a competitively priced service and we can easily respond to their demands extremely quickly. The Powermat also gives a superior finish on timber.”
