DALTONS WADKIN EQUIP EAST ANGLIAN SAWMILL
Old established timber merchants and sawmillers A & W Cushion who have mills in Norwich and Great Yarmouth have replaced their existing planer moulder with a new Kuper SWTXL6 machine from Daltons Wadkin.
Long time customers of Daltons Wadkin, Cushions, who can boast five generations of family ownership, approached Daltons Wadkin Sales Director Andy Walsh in order to find a machine which would be heavy enough to suit their production requirements and at the same time provide technical innovations to improve performance and quality of the finished product. Directors Cedric and Dominic Copping visited the Daltons Wadkin showroom to see the latest Kuper machines and were impressed with the build quality and available specifications. After discussions with Andy a Kuper SWTXL6 six-head machine was chosen incorporating Siemens controls, an air cushioned table with chrome bed plates, 8000 rpm spindle speeds and linear chip breakers.
The Kuper was subsequently delivered, installed and commissioned by Daltons Wadkin engineers and is now in daily production at Cushion’s Norwich mill. Dominic Copping said, “We are delighted with the new machine and the installation and back-up service provided by Daltons Wadkin. The new moulder suits our production requirements ideally and the advice and support from Daltons Wadkin has once again proved invaluable.”
Andy Walsh added, “We were very pleased once again to have the opportunity of supplying our friends at A & W Cushion with another quality product and are confident that the new planer moulder will give them excellent service in the years to come.”
