With increasing numbers of warm edge technologies now available to the UK market, Edgetech, the UK’s only dedicated WET manufacturer, has launched an online calculator that works out in seconds what the most cost effective warm edge solution is for unit manufacturers of all sizes.
Andy Jones, Managing Director comments: “The warm edge technology market is growing rapidly and with this growth has come claims of which system has superior performance, why one is easier to manufacture than another, and which offers best value for money. Independent testing separates out the structural, acoustic and thermal capabilities of each spacer, but now for the first time ever, manufacturers can see which warm edge technology is the most cost effective for their requirements. We’re urging companies to take the challenge to see how much they could save by switching the technologies they currently use or are planning to use. In some cases annual savings run into 100s of 1000s of pounds – surprising for such a small component as the humble spacer!
“Free to use, to complete the Challenge you just need to enter your average unit size and production output per shift. Click one more drop down box with two Super Spacer options and your annual cost comparisons against all other warm edge technologies in the UK will be calculated in seconds. All prices include machinery, labour and all consumables, something that some warm edge suppliers steer clear of when talking cost per metre. With costs tighter than ever across the industry, the Challenge Calculator is proving invaluable for any sealed unit manufacturer looking to operate more efficiently and make more money.”
