have come at a perfect time for us to take advantage of what’s required at the moment. The last financial year has been phenomenal; we couldn’t have imagined it.” Having grown year on year since parting company with its former distributor to open its own UK branch in 2010, Emmegi (UK) increased its turnover by 50% in 2015 and expects to increase still further this year. As a family-owned company, the roots of which stem back to Modena, Italy, there is a strong element of pride behind the Emmegi brand, which is reflected in all aspects of the business, including how the machinery looks as well as how it functions. Walking around Emmegi (UK)’s 5,500ft² head office in Coventry, which houses a fully operational machinery show room, displaying all the latest technology from the group, as well as a stock of spare parts and accessories, an element of Italian style is evident, even down to the tiles on the floor in the reception area. But there is obviously substance behind this style – highlighted by the news, in January this year, that 111 MACHINERY Emmegi’s parent company, Cifin, has purchased rival machine supplier, Elumatec. Although both companies will essentially remain autonomous, operating under the same umbrella means they will be able to share resources and technology, ultimately improving standards for all their customers and the industry in general. This month’s FIT Show, will see Emmegi feature some of its most popular machining and cutting centres alongside a number of new innovations and the team will be giving live demonstrations of the machines during the show, as well as offering expert advice on the right choice of machine for individual factory set ups. Back at Newbury, Ian and Rod have further plans to invest in machinery, but they say they don’t want to ‘overstretch’ themselves just yet. “We haven’t finished investing in machinery,” said Ian. “But for now, it’s about controlling and utilising what we have to the max; it’s about getting that right and then adding another and, with Emmegi, we’re pretty much reaching production utopia.” “We are really seeing the benefits of the TS2 and the X4 in terms of efficiency, consistency and quality too” – Rod Newbury, Newbury Commercial Glazing • The Emmegi Precision TS2 electronic twin-head saw with front blade has three axes controlled by automatic movement of the mobile head. It of fers angled cutting to 45° inwards and 15° outwards and can cut to 280 positions per degree. A patented innovation by Emmegi achieves both virtual rotation of the cutting units on the saw and absolute rigidity so that positioning and profile blocking are always accurate. According to Emmegi, these features ‘allow for a greater cutting precision than any other machine in its category’. • The Emmegi Phantomatic X4 four-axis work centre is used for working bars of aluminium and other light alloys, PVC and steel pieces up to 2mm. It has an eight-place tool storage, with the possibility of hosting an angular unit and a milling disc, to perform machining on five sides of the piece. Working bars up to 4m long, the 4th CN axis allows the electro spindle to continuously rotate to from 0º to 180º in order to perform work on the profile edge. It also has a mobile work surface that facilitates the piece loading and unloading operation and Emmegi will be exhibiting at the FIT Show on stand 106. info.uk@emmegi.com | info@newburycommercialglazing.co.uk www.ggpmag.com April 2016 ‘significantly increases’ the workable section.
