For more than 60 years engineering subcontractor Young & Wood of Harlow, Essex, has manufactured a diverse range of components for architectural fittings, commercial buses and the banking industry. The company has recently installed a Syncrono laser cutting machine from Prima Industrie in order to keep production costs down and remain competitive.

“Versatility is a key requirement for us in providing solutions for customers,” explains director John O’Rourke. “In the morning we could be producing bus components, and in the afternoon, banking trolleys. It was vital we invested in a machine that was not only able to handle the wide-ranging job specifications, but also offered speed, reliability and the highest cutting quality.”

Young & Wood uses a range of materials between 1 mm and 15 mm thick in its production processes – including mild steels, stainless and aluminium – and as such, was looking to source a machine that could cut both heavy and light gauge material to the standards required.
