Investment in quality
Aquapac has invested heavily in the latest design and production equipment allowing us to offer market-leading quality, design and value for money.
Our factory provides production, assembly, and packing facilities. The production line has an array of top quality machinery that allows us to cut, edge and drill each panel to perfection.
We have invested a great deal of funds into buying top of the range equipment to produce a high standard of product.
After manufacturing each panel, we provide 2 options. We can assemble the item in house, or the goods are sent to our packing line and can be flat packed into boxes along with any fittings required by the end-user for the build. We also offer a full step by step instruction manual to accompany each unit.
Quality control plays a very important part of our business. We have adopted a number of quality control techniques that are used throughout the production process. Each batch production has spot checks, and a whole unit being picked and assembled to confirm assembly precision and ease.
Each member of staff, at a particular workstation, has a specific role to play in ensuring that the quality of our products is of the highest standard. This includes monitoring both the technical specifications and the overall quality of each panel. Careful logging of the checks made to the parts as they move between machines; checking, size, finish, and hole precision.
We have a Quality Control Supervisor who manages the overall process, keeping detailed reports of inspections carried out. The Quality Control Supervisor is continually looking for ways to increase the quality of our products.
Holzma HPL 510 Beam Saw
Our beam saw allows 6 standard 18mm boards to be cut at once. There is an automatic in-feed at the back of the machine, and the cut panels exit from the front, allowing continuous cutting, and very little downtime. This machine has optimisation software, allowing us to make the best possible use out of the board, with minimum wastage.
Homag Optimat KAL 210 Edge Bander
We have 2 Homag Optimat edgers. These run at a speed of 22m per minute. They have built in premilling stations which eliminate any chipping, and provide a smooth edge for the tape to be applied. There is a quick set up time involved, and it is possible to edge panel thicknesses of 12-38mm. We provide both ABS and PVC edging up to 2mm thick.
Homag NBT200 Through Feed Drilling Centre
Although set up times are high on this machine, feed speed is high, drilling an average of 10 panels / minute. As a result, this machine is ideal for larger production runs.
Biesse Skipper 100 Drilling Centre
The Skipper can be used for both drilling and routering of panels. It drills 2 panels at once on an air flotation table. It is the perfect machine for any batch size, as the integrated computer system allows programs to be stored and used time and time again. The machine also provides drilling precision using laser beam technology.
Weeke Venture 1M CNC
This drilling centre has dual fields for pendulum processing. It is perfect for larger panels, which require both drilling and shaping (please note we also have a manual edge bander for edging shaped panels). The machine has an integrated computer programming system that allows jobs to be stored and used time and time again.
