As the number of CNC machines increased then so did the requirement for an air vacuum system, meaning that the industry standard approach to vacuum air production was no longer efficient. Starbank has lead the way in the UK by installing the first Centralised Vacuum System within the wood panel industry. The system is super efficient due to the high efficiency variable speed drive vacuum pumps working in conjunction with the control equipment fitted to each CNC machine, meaning that vacuum is only produced as and when it is needed.
It is anticipated that the system will generate savings in energy and maintenance costs in the region of £25-30,000 per annum whilst reducing carbon emissions and production downtime. Therefore creating a more efficient production line, and allowing us to pass these savings onto our customers.
