Flexible Manufacturing System

Are you looking for something custom? We have a manufacturing system that allows us to adapt to a specific application. This enables us to manufacture grating which deviates from our current standard items. We can offer our customers variations on the following elements*:

  • Overall size. (Grating can be cut to customer requirements.)
  • Bearer Bar Pitch and width.
  • Transverse Bar Pitch.
  • Serration Profile.
  • Manufacturing from different materials, for example, Aluminium.

*Whilst technically the possibilities are endless, and we will always endeavour to give our customers exactly what they want, this is not always justifiable. It is always best to contact us to determine whether we can find a solution that works.
