Our sheetmetal division has the largest array of machinery in the lower South Island and in recent years we have stepped up our investment in machinery to ensure that we stay at the fore front of technology

Brakepress

Three Amada and one Scott Brakepress with full CNC control.

Capacity: 
Up to two hundred tonne
Axis: 
Up to 8 axis
Length: 
Maximum of 4m long
Thickness: 
Up to 6mm at 3000mm long
Accuracy:
0.05mm

Laser

We have installed the very latest Amada FO-4020 NT, a 4KW model with a double 4m by 2m operational bed – one bed can be loading while the other is working. Once the cutting is complete the beds automatically interchange and the process begins again.

Laser Speed: Up to 15m per minute.
Gas: Pure Nitrogen,
97% Nitrogen (Ezi Cut)
Oxygen
Thickness, up to: 22mm mild steel
12mm stainless steel
8mm aluminium
Accuracy: 0.01mm
Materials: Steel, aluminium, wood, acrylic, vinyl
Services: Low tolerance detailed cutting
Medium tolerance speed cutting
Etching

Turret Punch

We have continuously invested in the latest Amada gear and we currently have three Amada and one Wiederman turret, linked to CAD/CAM computer design and control systems. Our range of tooling is extensive and all tool maintenance is done in house by trained operators.

Component Size:
Up to 5m x 1.5m sheets, 8m x 1.2m sheets
Thickness: 
Up to 6mm mild steel, 3mm stainless steel.
Accuracy:
0.10mm

CNC Router

We have recently installed a new CNC Router to enhance our production capabilities, this now gives us the same CNC control on timber components as we have with the laser on metal components. It also provides the additional benefit of in-house engraving, providing a faster and more competitive turnaround on engraved parts.

Laser Combo

Our latest investment in production technology is the Amada C1, an integrated laser and turret machine that offers the best of both technologies. The laser is perfect for complex curves whereas the turret is efficient at punching small accurate hole - often a part either compromises on one or the other, or if both are essential they are achieved with multiple handlings. The Amada does both operation in the one set up allow more complex shapes to be produced more competitively. It also offers an array of small forming tools that increases again the sophistication of parts that can be produced automatically.
