Robots, Cups of Tea and IKEA – Automated 3D Printing Cell Installed at Powell and Harber

Posted by on

A newly commissioned, in-cycle automated hot-foil-printing cell at Powell and Harber in Worcester, is our latest investment in support of our drive to take out rising labour costs and minimise human intervention to ensure standardised repeatable manufacturing conditions.

As the National Living Wage continues to run above inflation, it increases the need to take labour costs out of our processes. Our hot foil printing cell is a fully automated process which for example, prints parts, labels and panels for domestic appliances.

The stability inherent in the automated process improves cost effectiveness through lower waste, higher yields and ultimately a conforming product, on time and in full.
