Cartwright is investing in a new laser metal cutting machine that will significantly speed up the production process and reduce waste.
The company has invested in a Swiss manufactured laser machine which replaces the existing plasma punching machine.
The technically innovative and autonomous long bed 4.4 Kilowatt laser cutting machine delivers high precision and minimum heat distortion producing world class cutting results on components up to 6.5 metres in length.
Mild steel components can be produced in thicknesses ranging from 1mm to 20mm along with other material types such as aluminium and stainless steel.
The use of laser technology encapsulated in this machine has world wide recognition as an indispensable technology in the application of sheet metal processing.
John Cartwright Director of the Cartwright Group commented: "This is a very important investment which will have a major impact on improving our production processes.
"We plan to increase the production of metal components by 50% this year and this type of machine will help us to achieve that target," he added.
