Mark Hawkins, Finishing Team Leader – set up of jobs is made easier with BaumannWohlenberg’s new intuitive user interface
Lincolnshire based garments decorations manufacturer, J & A International have bought and installed their second BaumannWohlenberg 115 high speed guillotine this year from supplier Friedheim International. The 115 guillotines start from approximately £42,000.
The first BaumannWohlenberg was installed in March to increase capacity and their second was installed in the middle of June replacing an aging Wohlenberg 115.
The 150-staffed company is headed up by Managing Director Martin Kemp who said “The guillotine’s main advantage is their ease of use. My operators find these new machines to be intuitive and the operator manual is great. We operate double shifts, five days a week and we needed trustworthy and reliable guillotines to match our production. The build quality of the BaumannWohlenbergs are self-evident and a mark of a good high quality, premium machine.”
Established in 1979 J & A International have continued to provide the highest levels of quality and service in the manufacture of garment decoration in the sportswear, safety wear and workwear markets. Products are digitally printed badges, heat seal transfers, reflective products, heat applications, embroidered badges – their products are renowned around the world for their quality and the diversity and comprehensive product ranges with over 10 distributors around the world.
Martin Kemp adds, “Friedheim really know their guillotines. The service and after sales they provide is excellent and are willing to really look after us as a company. This was one of the main reasons we stayed with Wohlenberg guillotines when it came time to replace them”
