Heptron looks to go global with its renewable energy systems

After working for a major engineering company for many years as an electrical engineer, travelling across Europe, Gary Murphy decided in 1994 it was time to settle down and do things for himself and formed Heptron Manufacturing UK Limited.

Initially he provided a machine repair service to industry around St Helens, then as that work started to dry up he went back to his roots as an electrical engineer and started to develop a seed of an idea to convert waste heat into electricity.

Robotic Handling Raises Productivity

Volker Bühler, group manager for robotics at German sawing machine and storage system manufacturer, Kasto, describes the widening choice of automation systems on offer to minimise labour costs and increase production output from the company’s circular sawing and bandsawing machines.

The production solutions are available in the UK and Ireland through the firm’s subsidiary in Milton Keynes.

A Platform for Growth

As a manufacturer that exclusively machines plastic and composite materials, TK Fabrications has a machine shop packed with high-end turning centres, machining centres and routing machines.

These machines are tasked with manufacturing anything from prototype to 1000+ batch runs that are supplied to customers around the UK, Europe, China, Malaysia and the USA. FANUC has been supporting the growth of the subcontract company since 2002.
