2018 has seen many positive changes for Guy-Raymond. The positive change that has really stood out was the decision to upgrade our injection moulding machines. Moulding accounts for 60% of our manufacturing operation, so replacing our existing machinery with more energy efficient equipment was a great step forward.
The Fanuc Roboshot S100 iA model, with 1000KN of clamping force, outstanding build quality and proven technology stood out from the crowd. With modifications to suit our requirements, we purchased five new machines in May 2018, in addition to the five bought in 2016. As well as being highly reliable and reducing maintenance time, the Fanucs have reduced our electricity consumption by 13%! Along with reducing our energy costs and catering for increased customer demand, the Fanucs show Guy-Raymond’s commitment to environmental protection, a responsibility we take very seriously.
