RH Hall Fabrications has stepped up investment in its range of factory equipment to increase capabilities and allow further growth.
2017 has seen the company’s fabrications division gain a number of new customers and contracts, leading to an increase in orders and output required.
General manager, Kevin Shepherd, said: “This new equipment gives us the opportunity to move our overall capacity forward by increasing our stainless steel cutting ability, improving quality with an additional high spec laser cutter and also streamline our production by removing old equipment.”
The new Amada equipment includes a Press Brake, which will double bending capacities and remove any chance of bottlenecks in the production process.
There are now two identical machines in place and CNC programmes can easily be shared between the two by USB.
It has also added a new 2kW Laser Cutter, ideal for cutting stainless steel up to 6mm thick. This will work alongside its existing Laser Cutter which will continue to be used for smaller production items.
“Going forward we will continue with improvements to our work place organisation project and 5S programme, as well as reviewing our welding and grinding operations, to ensure we are continually improving our service and capabilities,” said Mr Shepherd.
