Training the Engineers of Tomorrow at Boxford

When Boxford Machine Tools decided to make the move to a state of the art manufacturing facility after more than 60 years of providing lathes and CNC machines for industry and education worldwide, they turned to specialist resin flooring contractors and FeRFA, The Resin Flooring Association, 2011 Award winners UltraSyntec Ltd.

As leading global suppliers of CNC equipment and CAD/CAM systems for schools, colleges and universities, Boxford were determined to build a centre of excellence for fabrication, component machining, CNC control, electronics and software under one roof with clearly marked bays and traffic areas specific to their manufacturing needs and to contribute to the cohesive development.

Using Pumashield medium viscosity epoxy resin coating, manufactured by Resdev Limited, UltraSyntec laid out the bay marking and walkways to co-exist with the innovative movement sensitive lighting system and over head automated cranes. In defined and contrasting red, green and grey sections, the coating was applied on top of Resdev’s Pumaprime DPM, solvent-free liquid applied damp proof membrane and residual moisture suppressant.

The seamless finish is cost effective and offers excellent abrasion and chemical resistance. It was completed by resin floor contractors UltraSyntec’s own trained and skilled workforce to ensure a continued high quality of service from specification, through to application and after care.
