Increase your capacity by up to 15%

Glass processors could almost instantly increase capacity by as much as 15%, according to Bohle.

Time lost to cleaning machinery, water tanks and replacement of tooling, can significantly reduce manufacturing capacity, adding up to £tens-of-thousands each year to overheads in downtime.

This, according to Bohle, can be eliminated overnight with the addition of a sedimentor to their lines.

“That’s an up to 15% efficiency gain for a very low level of investment,” Dave Broxton, managing director of Bohle, said. “It’s instant additional capacity at a time when the sector is struggling to get product out of the door to meet demand.

“Can you imagine what that could do to your annual profits?

“That’s before the £thousands you could save each year in waste-water disposal, or reduced cost of tooling.”

Suitable for a wide assortment of grinding, drilling and sawing glass equipment, Bohle sedimentors use an automated, multi-stage process to remove contaminants from coolants and water. This includes filtering of glass particles of <5µm while using less energy.

Furthermore, there are tax breaks available for investment, including the Super-Deduction scheme that allows companies to claim a deduction in their tax bill if they invest in new plant and machinery.
