MACHINERY ASTRASEAL MAKES MAJOR MACHINERY INVESTMENT Wellingborough based trade fabricator Astraseal has made a £300k machinery investment. The PVCu and aluminium fabricator has installed a new CNC machine, increasing its composite and fire door capacity from 150 to 250 doors per week. »»THE COMPANY HAS ALSO acquired another wrapping machine to vacuum pack the finished product. Marketing manager Zac Nedimovic comments: “The new CNC has been specifically designed for composite doors and will enable us to manufacture more efficiently than ever before. It’s a double bed machine, so we can work on two doors at the same time, and incorporates specially designed saws that cut the glazing cassette holes with incredible speed and precision. As well as improving the quality of the finished product, the saw means we will produce less wastage, another key benefit.” The company has invested around £3m in the business over the last two years, increasing capacity to 4,000 frames per week. ‘specifically designed’ Astraseal’s composite doors are made with the Nan Ya slab set in either a REHAU S706 or Eurocell Eurologik outerframe. They come equipped with the Winkhaus 2 claw STV2 Cobra lock and a choice of modern and traditional hardware.
