3D Aluminium Invest in New Production Machinery

Phantomatic-X4-cKnB.jpg?w=1024&h=529&scale

For Oxfordshire based 3D Aluminium, investment in the latest, most advanced fabrication machinery is part of its commitment to providing an exceptional service to its commercial clients.

3D is involved in flagship fenestration projects across London and the Home Counties, with a real emphasis on education, healthcare and both the new build and refurbishment sectors. It prides itself on the quality and precision of its windows, doors and curtain walling in Comar, Aluprof, Technal and Wicona profiles and on the efficiency of its operation.

It makes sense then for 3D to choose a machinery partner like Emmegi (UK) which can guarantee a continually updated product range, with an emphasis on minimising cutting and machining tolerances and maximising productivity.

3D Aluminium has been an Emmegi (UK) customer since the machinery supplier was established in the UK 10 years ago and has equipped its factory with a comprehensive mix of Emmegi saws and machining centres.

Now, 3D has upgraded its original Emmegi Phantomatic T3A 3-axes machining centre to a brand new Phantomatic X4 4-axes model, to add to the other X4 4-axes model it already owns, in order to expand capacity and increase its versatility.

The fourth axis on the X4 model allows it to machine profile at any angle from 0 to 180°, in comparison with the T3A which can machine from above and from 90º to right and left from the vertical. This gives 3D more flexibility for machining on profile edges and on more complex profile shapes.

Alongside the new machining centre, 3D has also invested in a new Emmegi Precision TS2 twin-head electronic saw, complete with a patented profile clamping device which, as the name suggests, achieves extremely precise cuts.

Paul Batts, 3D’s Production Manager, says Emmegi’s quality and service meant 3D didn’t need to go anywhere else when it was looking to invest in new machinery. He explained:

“We’ve always been impressed with the machines and with the service from the whole team. What’s particularly useful for us is the fact that Emmegi’s range is so broad that we know they will always have a machine available which exactly suits our needs.”
