Alumet has three fabrication plants at its head office in Warwickshire. The most recent of which is a £500,000 unit opened in 2008 by HRH the Duke of Kent. These facilities allow the company to produce the majority of products in-house, as well as allowing for further research and development into façade technology. Our facilities house the following equipment:
The company also has a tool room, paint shop, welding facility and machine shop. Alumet has the capacity to manufacture all of its own steel fabrications and brackets in-house.
Alumet’s latest addition is an Emmegi Quadra Aluminium 12 axis CNC machine. The cutting and machining centre is state-of-the-art, with Alumet being the only company in the UK and the sixth company in the world to have received the new model.
The system features 6 spindles for 360 degree machining and a descending blade for cutting and notching of profiles, this allows us to significantly increase the accuracy and quality of our production methods.
Alumet’s team of designers use the lastest in Computer Aided Design software to render all models.
Once designs for sections are complete, they can be sent to the CNC machine electronically to be manufactured.
We have built up a library of bespoke machining operations relating to particular sections and bars. This back-catalogue reduces the time taken to respond to contracts.
