Investment in new uPVC bending machinery
Universal Arches in St Helens has always been a forward-thinking company, willing to invest in training employees and in manufacturing innovations that will improve our overall efficiency, and ultimately the quality of our arched windows and doors. During the last two years, the company has invested significantly in the research and development of automated uPVC bending technology.
The highly skilled manual process of bending and shaping uPVC is, by definition, extremely laborious when working to the exacting ISO standards to which each and every one of our arched frames is manufactured. Our Research & Development efforts now mean that we can produce our specialist curved products to the same exacting standards – but on a semi- automated basis.
It is innovations such as this that continue to enable us to remain price competitive for our client base manufacturers of uPVC Windows and Doors manufacturers who rely on our arched, curved or circular specialist uPVC products to add value to their own core product offerings.
With the introduction of this innovative technology, we are even more confident that we will be able to supply our customers with zero deficiencies in the arched profile quality as the machine can now bend profile without a join from one end of the frame to the other – thereby enabling us to be able to guarantee absolute symmetry between the left and right side of the arched window or arched door frame.
Such is the capability of this new technology that it is capable of bending uPVC profile to create a perfect arched window or arched door frame at a tight radius in just seven minutes.
Our fabricators are currently undergoing an extensive training plan in the use of this exciting technology – a technology that will soon enable us to reduce our lead times without compromising the quality standards for which we are renowned.
