PRECISION SAWING CAPACITY FROM DALTONS WADKIN
Derby based EPM Technology is an engineering company operating with a wide range of thermo composite materials providing performance enhancing solutions to a customer base which incorporates among others F1 motor sport, Team GB at the Olympics, Channel 5’s The Gadget Show and a wide portfolio of users within the aerospace industry.
The company was established in 1996 by Graham Mulholland and has grown rapidly to become one of the most advanced and respected composite engineering businesses in Europe.
Bearing in mind the company’s need for ultimate accuracy and performance within its manufacturing processes there was really only one name in the frame when it came to a requirement for a new panel cutting saw and that was Altendorf.
Altendorf manufacture arguably the finest sliding table panel saws in the world and one of their principal UK distributors is Daltons Wadkin based in Nottingham. Accordingly Gavin Henderson at EPM approached the distributor stressing the need for a high precision and high quality tool and after discussions with Kyle Brown in the Daltons Wadkin Sales Department the model WA80TE machine was chosen incorporating 2250 mm sliding table and 1300 mm rip fence capacity together with powerful 7.5 HP electrics and multi saw speeds.
The machine was subsequently delivered, installed and commissioned by Daltons Wadkin engineers, overseen by Kyle, and is currently providing a significant boost to EPM’s production capacity.
Kyle said, “It was good to be able to provide a top quality high precision machine to a local engineering company. I am sure the machine will prove to be a great investment for years to come.”
