Emmegi (UK)’s ability to supply a brand-new twin head saw right in the middle of the lockdown confirmed to industry veteran Jason Wilder that he had chosen the right machinery partner for his new fabrication business, Spectral Windows.
Working from home, the team from Emmegi (UK) was able to source the Precision TS2 cutting centre from its Italian HQ and arrange safe delivery direct to Spectral’s East Midlands factory within just a few days of the order being placed, making sure that the company was ready to open its doors as soon as lockdown was over.
Jason said: “The PVC-U saws we had bought and paid for way back in January got well and truly stuck with a different supplier during the lockdown, but Emmegi (UK) pulled out all the stops for us and got our saw to us within a week. That gave us a real head start in terms of getting our aluminium production up and running. And, as a result, when it came to ordering the machining centre to work alongside the new saw, there was no question that we would choose Emmegi (UK) again and we went for a Phantomatic M4 to complete our set up.”
The Precision TS2 and Phantomatic M4 are a popular combination for fabricators because they use the same software and operator interface.
The 3-axis Precision TS2 offers angled cutting to 45° inwards and 15° outwards, and 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.
The Phantomatic M4 is a 4-axis machining centre featuring a high torque electro spindle which continuously rotates from 0° to 180° to machine on three sides of a section up to 170mm x 210mm. It can work with bars up to 4m long, with a moving work plane which makes loading and unloading easier.
Jason added: “I’ve got many years’ experience in this industry and I know the quality of the Emmegi machines is always first class. Spectral Windows will be producing a quality product, so it’s important that our production environment reflects that.
“We’ve invested in machines which we know will give us the capacity to meet our ambitious expansion plans and will give us both the performance and the reliability we will need to meet the very specific demands of the trade market.”
Spectral Windows already has two Midlands factories – one producing PVC-U windows and doors in Deceuninck and the other producing aluminium windows and doors in Smarts profile. With an experienced production team and a well-equipped factory, it is already setting the pace in the industry with a two-week lead time on most of its aluminium doors to meet surging demand from the trade.
