IKO Polymeric’s Clay Cross factory in Derbyshire has received a new £1.6 million packaging line which will increase efficiency and speed of production, deliver impressive quality control and produce its Armourplan PVC and Spectraplan TPE single ply membranes in 20 metre rolls in just 40 seconds.
The machine includes an eight camera ‘Vision’ system, used to monitor the consistency of the membrane, catching any imperfections in the membrane thickness to less than 0.1mm.
IKO Polymeric’s Managing Director, Anthony Carlyle, commented: “This latest investment allows us to double capacity to reinforce our UK market leading position. It will make customers’ lives easier too with lighter, smaller rolls which are easier to transport, use and store – while ensuring they get the first-class quality and service expected from IKO Polymeric.
Having enjoyed rapid growth since our start in 2005, the challenge is to meet the increasing demand without compromising on quality, while keeping waste to a minimum. With this new machinery, IKO Polymeric enhances quality control to the highest level. Refined processing will further reduce our already low waste levels, and the new winding and packaging facility will simplify and accelerate the finishing process and minimise energy use.”
IKO Polymeric is the only UK-based PVC and TPE single ply manufacturer and has achieved BES6001 for Responsible Sourcing.
