Case study

Background

Linecross Group is one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of polymer and composite products. They have over 50 years’ experience of innovative solutions for a diverse range of international industries including automotive, off-highway, leisure and speciality markets. Their client base includes luxury car makers Bentley and Aston Martin.

Requirements

Linecross Group continually invest in adding new complementary technologies to their portfolio to address the growing demand for technically enhanced and lighter weight components. They were seeking to update machinery within their factory, as the accuracy on existing systems was not as precise as previously, and they were spending significant time and investment on maintaining this equipment.

Solution

We reviewed their existing equipment and looked to enhance and refurbish where possible to provide a cost effective solution. We replaced their robotic arm and track system and created a waterjet cutting and trimming cell that utilised some existing elements coupled with the latest robotic technology.
