Sill production time cut

Promac Group has reported exceptional demand for its new Graf Synergy SLS sill welder, which brings seamless welding technology to the fabrication of bay and conservatory sills.

Part of the new FOM-GS Group machinery offer, the SLS exploits the same zip-welding technologies as the Graf SL4-FF range in sill manufacture, to deliver an exceptional finish – but also at a fraction of the overall time associated with traditional fabrication.  

Joe Hague, managing director of the Promac Group, said: “We’ve been asking customers how long a bay or conservatory sill weld would normally take to process and it’s anywhere between 10 and 15 minutes taking into account welding, cooling, knifing off, sanding, buffing and any penning in.

“The SLS total cycle time is less than two minutes per weld delivering extra strength while removing all of the abrasive processes. Its unique ability to automate a very manual operation is key to its viability and by comparison delivers stunning results on white and exceptional performance on foiled.”

“The philosophy of our stand is about helping our customers to make more money – either by achieving savings through efficiencies or in creating new opportunities – this is absolutely epitomised in the SLS and in the other highly innovative machines we have on stand.

“What we have seen at this year’s FIT Show is a continued move to high end quality products within all sectors of our industry which drives confidence in the market and therefore investment,” said Joe.
