Camlok boosts quality and output with new precision Plasma Cutter

Leading clamp and below-the-hook lifting equipment manufacturer Camlok has invested more than £100,000 in a new Plasma Cutter for its Chester, England, factory. Designed to provide precise, consistent and high quality fabrications, the new machine is part of the company''s strategy to provide faster deliveries and to sustain its drive for product quality and reliability.

The new 200 amp precision plasma will cut from 4mm up to 30mm and has the capability of marking the cut component with an identification number. It can engrave text in the component to a depth of 2mm and can also mark hole centres using the plasma torch saving time in the marking off process. When cutting 30mm the machine will cut 4 times faster than Camlok''s existing propane flame cutting machine.

Camlok exports the bulk of its UK production, marketed and supported through an international network of specialist distributors. The investment underlines the company''s commitment to providing world-class quality products to all its users in fabrication plants, factories, warehouses, ports and docks, on building sites, railheads and repair and service facilities around the world.

With an unrivalled range of around 6,000 standard products and specially designed solutions including scissor grabs, C hooks, tripods and forks, Camlok provides a one-stop shop answer for safe and reliable lifting equipment. Designed for easy repair and parts replacement, its products provide a lifetime of reliable service and performance.
