On 19th July we took delivery of our new steel lintel shear, which has been ordered to increase production levels and efficiency of our steel lintel production.
The new shear is a 6m Safan Darley M Shear that has been customised specifically for our own uses, and to a bespoke specification.
The new shear was put in place upon delivery and staff training is taking place so that it can be put into production with immediate effect.
Approximately 26% of our lintel sales this year have been steel, and with the new shear we are expecting that percentage to rise exponentially.
The new shear demonstrates Stressline’s commitment to investment as Chris Fox, our Managing Director explains:
“With demand for our 4m and longer steel lintel products increasing, the sales and production teams determined the replacement of our 4m shear for a longer shear was viable. Safan Darley make a fantastic product which will improve our workflow efficiency and manufacturing capability”Chris Fox, Stressline Managing Director
The new shear replaces the old 4m shear and will, at full capacity, enable us to double our production output of steel lintels.
One of the biggest advantages of the new shear however, is that it will enable us to produce lintels in lengths up to 6m. Our new lintel guide already has details of our new lintel range with span tables of lengths up to 5.1m for certain lintels. You can download the brochure and price list on the ‘downloads’ page.
The new shear is a significant step forward for Stressline and we are all very excited to see it in action. For more information contact the marketing team.
