New Investment Improving Customer Satisfaction

Introducing Homag Edgeteq PUR technology, a new investment that will improve the quality and range of bespoke lockers available for our customers.

 

This new equipment will make our lockers more durable, even in high temperatures and damp environments.  A wider range of adhesives will be available that last for longer and are more resistant to chemicals.  This new edge banding equipment is a superior product than Airtec or Lasertec tape technologies.

The main benefit comes from the PUR gluing technology, along with the High Gloss and Foil pack installed on the main edging machine. Combined they enable us to manufacture high end and upmarket finishes that were previously challenging to achieve or had to be outsourced.

New finishes will now include 3D, high gloss, Perfect Sense and tapes along with 60mm thick work tops.  These will all be produced at a consistent high quality as well as enabling improved locker durability and aesthetics of the finished product.

This new machine will have a positive impact on both the company as well as all customers.  There will be a significant improvement in business operating efficiency as well as an increase in production capacity.  There will also be an opportunity to manufacture more panels in house which are currently outsourced.

We believe this new technology will improve customer satisfaction.  Increasing the quality of the lockers being produced and increasing the range of finishes we offer.

This new machine was purchased with a £60,000 grant through Finance East & New Anglian Business Hub on the understanding that we will create three additional positions in the factory. It will be available and used from the end of July 2019, being utilised by the manufacturing team at Your Workspace to increase the speed of production while also improving quality of the completed products.

The new Homag S500 edging system combines the latest PUR gluing technology and high gloss pack to achieve high end finishes across a broader selection of material, thickness and finishes.
Combining improvements in production efficiencies and output, giving peace of mind to our customers through outstanding appearance, bond strength and longevity of finished product.
