A Sustainable Happy New Year!

To continue pushing our green ways, we have taken the decision to now stock green cast acrylic which is available in all colours and thicknesses. Green cast is 100% recycled and is 100% recyclable. We aim to produce as much unitary in this where possible and if the design allows. It is environmentally friendly acrylic that is made from 100% recycled raw materials and can be recycled over and over again.

We are also expanding our in house woodwork department continuing our push to work with natural materials. We have the capabilty to produce prototypes in wood as quickly as we do acrylic, as well as small runs up to large roll outs.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Well it’s that time of year again, Christmas jumper day! We all took part here today to raise money for Save the Children. Lots of fun and festive cheer whilst raising money for another great cause! If you’d like to make a donation, please text TEAMTHEGRAVE to 70050 to donate £5.00.

We’d like to thank all our customers for your continued support throughout the year and look forward to working with you all in the new year.

Have a fantastic Christmas and a happy New Year from all of us at Thermograve.

Raising Money For Great Causes

Every year, we are asked to sponsor Loughborough Round Table who organise a fantastic event over a 2 week period all over Great Britain and Ireland in order to support local causes up and down. This year our local area charity is Mia Moo’s Foundation.

Mia Moo was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia when she was 1 and a half years old, where after 2 years of treatment, she was given the all clear. Sadly, 7 months later, Mia was diagnosed with cancer again in her spinal fluid. Treatment is ongoing and Mia will be on medication for the rest of her life.

After Mia’s first diagnosis, she was fortunate to go on holiday with her parents which brought pure joy to the little girl’s life. Mia’s parents want other families in similar situations to be able to enjoy this rare family alone time as well, so they have set up the Mia Moo’s Foundation in order to raise £40,000 to buy a holiday home that can be used by many.

This year, Round Table have organised their santa float to travel around the local areas with members volunteering their own time to bring festive cheer and raise money for a fantastic cause at the same time. So check out Loughborough Round Tables website to see Santa’s route this year and give what you can.

 

PRINTING IN PROGRESS…

Well, what a year it has been entering into the world of digital print. Let’s say the slowly slowly only lasted a few days as we hit the ground running! We are over the moon with how well it has taken off and fingers crossed, long shall it continue.

From large window displays, taking advantage of the full 3 metre x 2 metre bed, to delicate counter units where detail is key, our printer has been none stop. So, to give him (that’s right, I am referring to it as ‘him’ as we have spent so much time together), we thought he needed a helping hand. Therefore, we have welcomed in a brand new additional flat bed in order to double our capacity.

Another ultra high speed flat-bed UV LED printer that prints at upto 25sq m/h accompanied by our large format flat bed means we can offer extremely competitive pricing and even quicker turnarounds. We are more than happy to accept in print only jobs or alongside acrylic projects so everything can be kept under one roof to allevaite additional costs and hassle for you.

Not forgetting our existing in house screen print shop and roll fed printers for any paper/sticker requirements, we can offer the full printing package to achieve any finish that is required.

For any print or acrylic enquiries, please drop us an email or give us a call.

We have gone digital…

We are entering the bright and colourful world of digital printing with the purchase of a ultra-high speed flat-bed UV LED printer with a grand format of 3.1 metres x 2.1 metres. It produces the highest quality image definition and can print down to 2 point text with stunning clarity. We can offer this as part of an acrylic project or as a completely separate entity for print only jobs. With speeds of up to 60m2/h, we can offer quick turnaround times and at competitive rates.epson

It doesn’t stop there, we also have a roll-fed printer, which can achieve incredible colour accuracy again at high speeds, enhancing productivity and efficiency to meet your needs. Not only can we offer you the printing, we also have a cutter plotter with mark sensor allowing accurate contour cutting of stickers and graphics. To ensure we can offer our customers the whole process, we have also purchased a laminator capable of producing up to 3 metres per minute.

And there’s more….Not forgetting our existing screen print shop, producing our own films and printing on beds up to 1.6 metres x 10.1 metres.  Again, we can offer this as part of an acrylic project or screen print alone.

For all these processes, we can take your artwork files, make them print ready, print as you wish, cut and laminate all under one roof leaving you with the confidence that we can handle the whole project start to finish. We are happy to accept your free issue material and simply do the print as well as offering you the choice of us sourcing this for you so you don’t have to.

We are excited to be entering into this new world and hope you will join us. If you have any questions, please drop us an email or give us a call.

The 5-Axis is Here!

The cranes have been in unloading the 5-Axis CNC (which was quite tricky in the high winds) in to place and we are getting all set up ready to go. For more information on the new CNC and to understand the extra options available compared to our 3-Axis CNC’s, please refer to earlier News dated 12/11/15.

Alongside this, the investment continues with new compressors being fitted, which are much more energy efficient. We here at Thermograve, are very excited about the new equipment coming in and are looking forward to 2016.

We would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

PLUS…Some very exciting news coming shortly, watch this space………..

5-AXIS CNC COMING SOON!

We are very excited to announce that we will be the proud owners of a 5-Axis CNC before the year is out! A lot of research and consideration was put into the decision to bring in this additional CNC alongside our existing 3-axis machines, so we are preparing for its arrival and want to shout about all the extra options that we will now be able to offer our customers. We understand the importance of investing in state of the art technology so we are able to offer the best processes with top quality outcomes.

I know what you’re thinking, what does 5-axis mean and what does it do? Well, it’s all in the name. It can machine a part or a tool on 5 different axis at the same time. As opposed to a 3-axis, the 5-axis can rotate on an extra 2-axis allowing the part or tool to be cut from all directions allowing pendulum machining. With a large bed 3650mm x 2120mm and a large number of tools in the machine, it increases the types of parts that can now be produced including 3D surfaces.

Now for those with the knowledge, the stats! Parts up to 250mm in height can be machined with speeds of rotation reaching up to 24000 RPM. The 5-axis can oparate at angles up to 10 degrees below the parts supporting surface and with rapid 16 rear tool magazine.

If you would like any more information on what our new CNC can do or in fact, any other area of acrylic fabrication, please do not hesitate to give us a call!
