High quality bedroom manufacturer Sliderobes West Yorkshire has just upgraded its whole production facility with help from Lancashire-based VWM.

Sliderobes visited the VWM showrooms and looked at the selection of machinery on display – it was clear that a small footprint CNC boring machine, new panel saw and edgebander were needed to increase production, quality and accuracy on its products.

All the machines were fully demonstrated at VWM’s fully operational showroom and it was decided the first machine needed was the new Robland BM3000 CNC boring machine.

The machine has a fully installed Windows-based software that enables the customer to draw panels for face drilling, end drilling, grooving, routing, cam and dowel and Blum hinge holes.

Once this operation has been performed, simply load the panel on to the machine and press go – a typical wardrobe panel with multiple holes for shelves and some cam and dowel drilling would be processed in less than two minutes, which is a massive saving on labour and accuracy.

The Robland machine was installed and commissioned by factory-trained VWM engineers who recently completed training at the Robland factory in Belgium, thus giving VWM customers a better understanding of the machine and its capabilities.

The next two machines that Sliderobes West Yorkshire decided upon was a Griggio Digit 3 panel saw with touch screen, full three axis controls of the blade, tilt and fence position, fully automatic position of the scoring saw unit and digital flip-over stops to the crosscut table.

The final piece of the jigsaw was the new Lange B85KFE edgebander – this machine was fully loaded with many options which include pre-milling, corner rounding and buffing and glue scraping station.
