Peter Brown, owner of Browns 2000, the leading UK manufacturer and supplier of vinyl wrapped and Glacier doors, has just placed an order valued at £1.65m for a fully-automatic CNC routing and nesting line and a Stefani Laser edgebander, both for the production of the very popular Glacier door range.

To celebrate the arrival of Brown's eighth Stefani edgebander, the new Laser machine will be exhibited on the SCM Group’s stand – 7E570 – at the forthcoming W14 exhibition. It will be fully working, as if on production, using materials and edgebanding supplied by Browns 2000.

As well as the Laser application, the machine will also have the Stefani PUR Slimline gluing system for dual edging, similar to a Stefani edgebander already on production at Browns 2000. A door return conveyor system will be supplied after W14 to Browns, due to space requirements on the stand, along with the laser machine.

The Glacier door is available in 12 colours, with more to come, using acrylic and PVC laminated in-house to produce the perfect high gloss surface. It is then edged with matching laser edging materials to create the appearance of a seamless join with the doors being nominally 19.5mm in thickness.

The latest SCM nesting line, 37m in length, consists of two Ergon twin-table CNC routing and nesting machines with a board store for 20 stacks of sheets. A DMC cleaning unit and a stacker at the outfeed completes the line, which will be capable of nesting panels from a sheet at a rate of 280 sheets per eight hour shift.

On the SCM stand, Browns will also be showing its new range of 22mm thick MFC J profile doors. Using the latest technology and one of its existing Stefani edgebanders, Browns will be the first company in the UK manufacturing the edge handless door so it will be of great interest to visitors.

Peter Brown comments: “We are looking forward to the W14 exhibition to give us the opportunity of showing our latest door ranges and enable visitors to see how the Glacier doors are edgebanded on our latest Stefani Laser edgebanding machine that we will take delivery of immediately after the show. We will have representatives on the SCM stand to show the Laser process and samples of our full range of doors.
