The new line to handle and sort larger items in our product range such as gate posts and sleepers is coming on well. While the mill was closed last week for our summer shut down some of the team kept working .
This picture shows, at top, the the CNC cross cut saw which will cut sleepers and gate posts to length with computer controlled accuracy. The tray is being fitted in the picture at bottom.
The aim of the game is to reduce manual handling of these heavy objects. Whilst we’re pleased with progress there is still some mechanical work to be done and a great deal of electrical installation to be carried out. We’re thinking that the new line will be up and running by October. Rest assured, if you’ll pardon the pun, that we’ll keep you posted.
