UTS is one of the leading UK and European suppliers of customisable height access equipment, including industrial towers, podium steps, folding towers and stairwell towers.
As a leading manufacturer, UTS specialises in producing high-quality aluminium products that enable its clients to work at heights safely and efficiently.
Pentangle Engineering Services was recommended to UTS by a mutual contact. UTS needed a welding lathe for its aluminium scaffolding, which would weld different fittings onto different lengths of tube, a process that was being manually carried out.
Based on a “waterwheel” end changer system, the machine provided by Pentangle enables the operator to unload and load a new component whilst a component is being automatically welded and cleaned, dramatically increasing production capacity, welding quality and consistency.
“Absolutely first-class service,” said Mike Grainger, director at Kent-based UTS, “We gave Pentangle a very tight deadline of 10 weeks for the machine to be designed, manufactured and installed, and they delivered in 10 weeks!
“The new machine is fantastic and has literally doubled our production capacity and welding consistency by 100%. In addition, the after care service has been second-to-none and ongoing maintenance has been first-class. We will definitely be back for more machinery in the future.”
