Industrial - Industrial Cutting Machines


Global Manufacturer of Specialized Industrial Cutting Machines


Background

Our customer is a designer and manufacturer of high spec industrial cutting and grinding machines for the solar and mobile communications industries, among others.  Their machines are generally for export and sold around the world.

Customer Brief

Our customer received a substantial order from a leading North American technology company to provide cutting and polishing machines to service a global product roll-out.  They required prototype development and batch manufacture to a high specification.


CEL Solution
CEL converted the customer’s 3D CAD files into 2D profiles.  We worked in close partnership on prototype development as the customer perfected machinery and framework designs.  Once the prototypes were approved by the end customer in North America, we provided scheduled delivery dates for two different machines designs, coolant tanks and various frameworks, guards and components over a four month build cycle.
Materials used

Stainless steel enclosures, panels, plinths and coolant tanks as well as mild steel sheet and box section components and perspex guarding, powder coated finishes.



Customer response

"CEL worked closely with us and maintained high level of flexibility as we regularly adjusted our schedule to meet our end customer requirements.  The stainless steel enclosures were finished to a very high standard.  We had particularly tight deadlines and CEL played an important role in helping us meet these timeframes and high spec requirements.   We look forward to working with you on our next project." -- Engineering Director
