Highly polished outcome

​Aquaflame Systems provides solutions for micro soldering and acrylic flame polishing through a range of products.

The Aquaflame range are high performance gas-generating units, producing a high temperature flame – in the range 1200-3300°C.

Employed extensively in the jewellery, dental and other technical manufacturing industries, the Aquaflame range provides solutions for individual traders and small retailers through to larger manufacturers.

As a side issue to current Brexit concerns, and as an integral part of recent production re-structuring, the team at Aquaflame found they had supply problems with simple carry handles needed for their equipment, which can weigh up to 30kg. At the same time, they identified case alignment problems associated with handle fitment in conflict with the internal assembly – identified as taking an extra 15 minutes per unit.

Explained MD Barry Peck: “We found assembly and supply problems traced back to a simple handle and could not resolve these to our satisfaction, so we looked around for a UK based company with a standard ex-stock product at a competitive price. Fortunately, we found Elesa whose sales engineer called round quickly and offered a simple low-cost solution to our handle problems, which saved us money on each machine.”

The Elesa EPR-PF is a robust clip-in handle in glass-reinforced polyamide that Aquaflame can leave to the final stage of assembly prior to packaging. They are manufactured by Elesa at its own production facility as part of a continuing commitment to a high quality/design ethos, which controls production in house so far as possible, eliminating problems often encountered with non-manufacturing suppliers – “thus ensuring reliable worldwide stock in more than 60 countries worldwide, through 12 subsidiaries and qualified distributors in the major industrialised countries,” stated Elesa.
