The developmental trend for industrial and off-road machinery, whether mobile or otherwise, is increasingly to employ a sophisticated hydraulic system as a means of exerting power over it’s chosen work environment. These high power hydraulics have been a focus for Elesa over many years for the many accessories needed to make the details work and it has led to many apparently simple but deceptively thoughtful technical solutions.

Only 1 month after becoming a member this company had won 3 jobs.
The first was won on response time and professionalism as they were 8% more expensive than the cheapest quote. They worked through the night to complete the work on time but this has concreted a good working relationship, and the buyer has assured them they will be using them again in the future. The second was a small, quick turn around job.

EMKA yet again demonstrate their adaptability as manufacturers of enclosure hardware, with the introduction of a heavy duty 1091 latch (IP65) for machine guards, machine tools, generators, ovens, test cabinets etc. These types of cabinet in particular can have significant internal pressure, requiring considerable leverage on the latch handle for satisfactory closure – the 1091 provides this by virtue of it’s engineering quality and ergonomic design.

Due to the increased requirement for CNC Turning the management at Baytree Industries realised that investment in new equipment was needed. The decision was made to purchase a Tornado A90 as it fitted the need perfectly, with its small footprint the A90's compact form belies its considerable power and production capacity. The 11 kW spindle motor ensures even greater bite at the cutting face, while Z axis, spindle bore and bar capacity are all match our current and predicted requirements
