GENESIS CUTTER FROM BW GOES DUTCH WITH MARQUEE MANUFACTURER
When the Dutch manufacturer of bespoke marquees and heavy duty tents, Camp Weerter Zeilmakerij (CWZ), decided to take its cutting function in-house, they faced the dilemma of cutting complex shapes, within a confined space in their factory.
Employing extra staff would not only have been expensive, it would also have taken up too much room, and posed a real challenge for the more complex shapes required.
Instead CWZ talked to Blackman & White, specialists in fixed blade and laser flatbed cutting machines, who worked with MD Patrick Camp to meet the strict requirements for space saving, versatility, value for money, and after sales support.
Patrick eventually chose a Genesis 2300 cutter from BW because it ticked all of these boxes and more. “Apart from being extremely competitive on price, the Genesis machine from BW had the conveyor option I needed,” says Patrick. This cost-effectiveness is enhanced by the Genesis’s ability to run 24-hours a day, increasing throughput without escalating costs. “As well as the complex shapes we originally specified the Genesis 2300 for, it is now cutting simple shapes which we previously did by hand so we’re saving even more time and reduces material wastage. Without doubt it has made a really big difference to our business.”
A two-man team from BW travelled to Holland to install the machine and offer Patrick a week’s training. And it was this technical and service back up is what has made BW stand out from the crowd. “Blackman & White has lived up to its reputation for after-sales support,” says Patrick. “They provided an extra three days training to make sure everything was running smoothly and they can support the machine’s software remotely.”
The versatile Genesis 2300 is one of the newest additions to Blackman & White’s portfolio of industrial cutting machines. Its multi-tool head can carry rotary of fixed blades as well as BW’s vibratory blade and the driven ‘pizza wheel’ which makes it the perfect choice for a wide range of applications.
