Cambridge Roof Truss Make a Speedy Investment

With a highly successful first year’s trading under their belt, Cambridge Roof Truss has recently taken delivery of a Stavelse PCI-30 Auto press, which is the first machine of its kind in the UK.  

Cambridge Roof Truss provide many of the region’s leading housebuilders with roof trusses and joists, and due to the rapid expansion of their business, felt that the time was right to install the new press which they consider will place them in an even better position to offer their clients a service which exceeds anything that the truss industry has experienced previously.

Such significant financial investment indicates the company’s commitment to ensuring that they are at the forefront of production technologies. The state-of-the-art press provides easy controls, fast set up times and impressive production speed for any configuration of truss, which ensures maximum productivity regardless of the mix of truss shapes and batch quantities required.

The press is operated by the DXF files being fed directly to press from the design software and the ‘Pucks’ move automatically to the correct position, enabling an operator to position both timber and plates accurately. The head, moving at some 800mm per second, then travels the length of the table pressing the plates as it goes. Set-up time therefore is greatly reduced and several trusses can be laid on the table which is 22 metres long, and pressed at the same time.

Jack McMinn, Managing Director of Cambridge Roof Truss commented “Our first year of trading has been a great success, and we are approaching 2016 with excitement and confidence and an ever increasing order book. The timely installation of our new Stavelse Auto press ensures that Cambridge Roof Truss is positioned at the very forefront of UK roof truss production”.
