Moving premises is never easy, but for Maitland Conservatory Roofs things were made that bit easier thanks to some help from Kombimatec. After receiving 10 years of great service from the award-winning machinery manufacturer, Maitland decided to continue its partnership by investing in a DGS536 Electronic Double Mitre Saw for its new premises.

“We’ve always had nothing but great service from Kombimatec,” says Maitland Conservatory Roofs Production Director Mark Owen, referring to a previous machine purchased from Kombimatec. “We originally bought a second hand machine about 10 years ago but with the move to the new premises we thought it was time to purchase a brand new saw. And following the great service we had previously received from Kombimatec it only made sense to continue our partnership with them.”

According to Mark the service wasn’t the only reason for sticking with Kombimatec. “The price point was very competitive,” he says. “We were looking at other machinery suppliers but Kombimatec was the best overall offering reliability, service, and value for money. How many companies can offer that?”

Kombimatec’s DGS536 Electronic Double Mitre saw comes complete with 2x 530mm TCT saw blades that allow two profiles to be cut simultaneously. With faster automatic positioning according to cutting length and angles required via servo motor with closed loop feedback, cutting lists are transferred by USB memory stick directly to the saw.

Complete with three axes and heads that tilt 22.5 to 90 to -45 degrees, the saw also comes with a colour touch screen on an overhead boom which is easy to use and access by the operator as it is kept clear of the working area. This significantly reduces the risk of profile falling or dropping onto screens that are housed inside lower level operating consoles.
