Absolute has announced a further investment in equipment to keep up with demand for their range of woven Carbon Fibre chambered doctor blade systems. The latest purchase is a new high accuracy 5 axis fully robotised CNC milling machine. The total project will cost $600,000 and will be in production in July 2014.
Antony Whiteside, of Absolute, commented” This machine will allow us to manufacture a higher quantity of chambers to an even higher standard previously, and is a reflection of Absolute’s commitment to providing the very best product to our customers.
New offices and additional factory space have already been added to our UK manufacturing facility. Significant investment has also been made in new product development. This will result in the launch of additional products that are specifically designed to optimise the flexo process and the whole ink system.
Investment in people and equipment is the key to our expansion. We have agreed on a long term plan that will ensure that the whole Absolute Team develops and has the products and resources to continue to grow rapidly. The next decade will be one of great change for our industry, and we fully intend that the Absolute Team will be at the forefront of that change.”
