Tuffx Invests In More Machinery As Demand Grows

TuffX' latest Bovone machine.

Following continuing growth in demand for its toughened safety glass products, TuffX has purchased another new Bovone SLE machine.

This is the third purchase of such a machine in as many years. It has been installed in the company’s recently expanded Merseyside factory.

“We’re continuing to see ongoing customer demand for both our toughened laminated and single toughened glass products,” said TuffX’s MD Graham Price.  “The addition of another Bovone SLE machine for us is just the latest in a series of improvements we’ve made and continue to make in order to expand our output and production speed to meet this customer demand for safe, high-performing glass, along with the quality finish, tight lead time and high standards of service that our customers know to expect from us.”

The Bovone machines, used to finish edges on popular processed glass products such as balcony screens and balustrade glass at varying thicknesses, can produce flat and arris profiles at a speed of four metres-per-minute, processing glass at greater volumes whilst retaining a quality finish.



TuffX’s latest purchase has been installed at the specialist glass manufacturer’s Knowsle based factory, which increased its footprint to 80,000sq.ft earlier this year after it expanded into an adjoining unit to step up production of its increasingly popular Infinity range of rooflights and walk-on glass products.
