Twinseal praises Edgetech partnership

Established 22 years ago, Twinseal is said to be at the forefront of British IGU manufacturing thanks to a longstanding commitment to embracing new products and technology, and the support of its supplier, Edgetech.

Two automated spacer application lines, combined with Edgetech’s Super Spacer, have reportedly helped the York-based firm to streamline its operations and offer excellent product quality.

“With Edgetech’s support, we’ve been able to improve productivity and ensure we’re delivering the best possible IGUs to our customers,” commented production director, Lee Cowen.

“People often think automation is about replacing humans with robots, but at Twinseal, that’s not been the case at all.

“Even the most automated production line in the world still needs staff to oversee the production, and that human element can’t be replaced.

“My team is an integral part of what we do here at Twinseal – it takes extremely skilled staff to run our production line.”

Lee adds that Twinseal’s success can also be attributed to its ability to pre-emptively solve problems before they occur. He refers to Twinseal’s facility as ‘Noah’s ark’ – it has two of each piece of machinery to ensure that, if something goes wrong or machinery breaks down, there is a backup plan already in place.

Lee continued: “Engineering expertise and rigorous maintenance schedules are a vital part of providing the high-quality service we’re known for.’’

Edgetech head of sales, Tony Palmer, commented: “At Edgetech, we’ve always placed a special emphasis on embracing new technologies.

“We’re delighted that Twinseal has seen such success working with Super Spacer over the years, and is a fantastic example of what can be achieved by adopting automation.”
