DUFFIELD TIMBER UPRATE THEIR CROSSCUTTING CAPACITY
Sole UK distributors Daltons Wadkin have supplied a Salvador S200 Superpush automatic programmable crosscutting system to Duffield Timber incorporating optimising and defecting with a 6200 mm infeed capacity, 150 mm depth of cut and automatic outfeed with ejection.
The machine was selected as a result of discussions between Howard Duffield and Daltons Wadkin Sales Director Andy Walsh and is already impacting on Duffield’s crosscutting capacity and performance.
Duffield Timber is a family owned business based in Ripon, North Yorkshire, which proudly boasts over 50 years of trading and the continuing involvement of three generations of the Duffield family. The company are timber merchants and operate a highly equipped site incorporating state of the art machinery and handling systems coupled with a loyal and highly trained workforce.
Howard Duffield was more than happy with the new installation and said, “The Salvador Superpush is a major upgrade from our previous crosscutting operations. It’s safe, fast and accurate; furthermore the operators have taken to it very quickly. It is proving to be a really useful addition to our New Generation Sawmill.”
Andy Walsh commented, “Duffield Timber is the kind of company it is a pleasure to work with. Being old established and family owned they have a lot in common with our own business and we feel quite sure that their investment in a Salvador Crosscut will bring significant benefits.”
