Since our incorporation, Starbank have invested in 22 Homag CNC machines. These have been crucial for the success and growth of the business as they have allowed us to maintain our high quality standards. We have always taken a forward-thinking, latest technology approach when purchasing new equipment, focusing purely on high-specification solutions. This tactic has delivered tremendous flexibility, enabling us to produce a wide variety of panel types.
Starbank’s most recent CNC machining centre investments include: a Homag Centateq T-700 and a Centateq E-700.
“Our multi-million euro investment in these two new machines will firmly place Starbank at the heart of panel outsourcing in the UK for many years to come as we strive to continuously improve for our customers’ benefit”.
John McCaffrey, Business Development Manager.
Homag Centateq T-700
One of the reasons for selecting the CENTATEQ T-700 was the growth of compact laminate components we are now producing each week. To successfully manufacture high end detailed components and large volume work surfaces, with this material, it requires a large, robust and technically advanced machining centre. You only get this performance with the big gantry CNCs and the T-700 is perfect for us. We specified a 4-axis model with extra tooling carousels for bespoke applications to give us the capacity, flexibility and edge we wanted.
Homag Centateq E-700
The CENTATEQ E-700 is another powerful gantry CNC machine, but with the benefit of adding an EVA/PO edge banding unit. This gives us the ability to run a multitude of materials including the challenging 3D acrylic edging, setting us apart from our competition. As with the T-700 we opted again for a 4-axis model as this enables both synchronous or independent processing of panels depending on configuration.
Our multi-million euro investment in these two new machines will firmly place Starbank at the heart of panel outsourcing in the UK for many years to come as we strive to continuously improve for our customers’ benefit.
There’s no doubt we would not be where we are today without the right machinery and team driving our investments
