Quadruple cutting and machining centre investment at TruFrame
At TruFrame, we’re committed to providing not only the highest quality uPVC doors and uPVC windows, but supplying them in a timely manner and at scale and we continue to be the only high volume fabricator in the UK to hand finish every frame. We also carry out our own product development and testing in-house which has helped us create fantastic exclusive products such as the Refine™ mechanically jointed windows.
To achieve this, we regularly invest in our production capabilities, helping us stay ahead of the competition. Our most recent investment, a state of the art cutting plant, enables us to further demonstrate our commitment to being the trade frame supplier of choice.
The fourth and final cutting plant comes as part of TruFrame’s unprecedented £3.2 million investment into our plants. The additional capacity this plant provides gives us the ability to comfortably manufacture 4,000 frames in a standard 40-hour week, and we have plans to scale up the production of as many as 5,000 within a 40 hour week.
Our new cutting and machining centres provide a greater level of accuracy, consistency and production throughout and are tailor-made to fit TruFrame’s exact production needs. Including bespoke features that allow us to process profiles as short as 195mm, with far less disruption to production. While 8-axis German engineered machines utilize servo driven motors, which produce an end product with an astonishingly low tolerance of no greater than +/- 0.2mm. These state of the art machines ensure TruFrame uPVC windows and doors are the best in the industry.
