British Baxi, which manufactures boilers and water heaters, has chosen the new generation of automation equipment from AP&T. Among other things, the order comprises a new SpeedFeeder press robot and a control system upgrade for an existing AP&T press.
The equipment will be used to manufacture casings and chassis, and will be installed at Baxis’ production facilities in Preston in Q1 2017. Baxi will thus be the first in the UK to use AP&T’s new generation of SpeedFeeders, which are approximately 20 percent lighter and much more energy efficient and faster than previously.
“We have excellent experience with AP&T’s solutions, and are certain that the new equipment will help us streamline our production further,” says Paul Clayton, Baxi Engineering Support.
