At Butterfield Signs we aim to continually invest and are thrilled to announce we have just recently completed another internal reinvestment project.
Indeed, each year the business reinvests a portion of its profits into updating its technology and such like to remain as one of the UK’s market-leading organisations with this year’s investment also having the added important benefit of increasing and enhancing our green credentials.
Our new powder coating line is an all singing all dancing one and follows on from the previous year’s investments in the updating of our business laser, CNC routing and digital printing technologies. Overall, it will provide better consistency, whilst increasing our business capacity and including processes that will deliver extended warranties.
The installation is fully automated with the line extending to almost 120 metres in length and delivering prepared, coated and cured product at an impressive rate of 1.6 metres per minute.
Operating on a daily multi-shift basis this technology is capable of providing the complete preparation and finishing process for in excess of 300 no. six-metre long conventional high street fascias in any 20-hour running period.
The complete process includes an automated phosphate degreasing prewash delivering exceptional green credentials: no waste water, no sludge, no CFC or HCFC and no chlorinated or halogenated solvents.
The system is equipped with the latest generation of all-in-one gun controls and guarantees the fastest power output response times for reliable quality coating. The fully automated application and cleaning process ensures efficient colour changes with simple and intuitive operator guidance.
Take a look at our journey for yourself via the link above and continue to watch this space: we will keep you posted as we continue to further invest across the business with updates and enhancements that will undoubtedly have knock-on benefits for all.
