The company’s older point-to-point CNC machining centre at its Seaton Burn plant was not able to drill panels fast enough according to the firm, leading to bottlenecks in the production line and the need for a new CNC machine.

“We use the Masterwood for all the routing, drilling and grooving of the panels,” said production supervisor Dave Potts.

“As well as being quicker it’s much more accurate than our old CNC and has enabled us to overcome the bottlenecks we were experiencing.”

Roundel, which manufacturers bespoke kitchen and bathroom components, added that the software that came with the Masterwood machine was “so easy to use”, making it a “good value-for-money machine”.
