Gordian Strapping has provided an OMS 06RP horizontal strapping machine with a TR14 head to Ultima Furniture Systems located in South Kirkby, Yorkshire.
Ultima is a leading producer of superior kitchen furniture utilising a combination of the latest technology and hand-crafted skills that dovetail to produce kitchens of the highest quality. The large and varied range of kitchens, which includes finishing in any colour, is all manufactured on a purpose-built site that features state-of-the art facilities and the most advanced automated cabinet assembly line in the UK.
The introduction of the new OMS 06RP Strapping Machine with a TR14 head is part of Ultima’s overall investment in their manufacturing process. It will facilitate the production of special units in a more efficient way, and also speed up the packaging and dispatch of all units once assembled.
The OMS 06RP is a proven, high performance, robust machine. It was integrated speedily and simply into the production line by Gordian’s engineers with minimum disruption. Features include rear strap alignment bars that ensure accurate, repeatable strap placement and a rack and pinion system that eliminates the costs involved with chains and poly belts.
Features of the TR14 head include precise, repeatable strap feeding that avoids jams and increases up-time, and a ‘strap in place’ confirmation meaning that a pack cannot leave the machine without being strapped. Furthermore, OMS TR series heads only require major servicing every 200,000 cycles which means less down-time.
The new strapping system has several benefits including improved overall efficiency, ability to cope with a wider product range and enough capacity to satisfy increased demand. Furthermore, by eliminating Sellotape from the finished product, the new strapping machine has improved pack security and presentation and reduced the overall cost of packaging. Martyn Powell, Development Manager at Ultima, has been highly impressed with the machine and with Gordian Strapping’s all-round capabilities; “Gordian Strapping were the only supplier we looked at that fully understood our project objectives and growth plans. Not only did they have the best technical solution, but they also have two local engineers each within an hour of our facility.”
