Gainsborough firm invests £1m in emission reduction technology

Gainsborough-based Eminox has invested more than £1m in machinery to help meet customer demand for its exhaust after treatment systems.

The investment has seen significant operational improvements in its manufacturing areas to allow the installation of key equipment which enhances production facilities and brings tangible benefits to all our stakeholders.

The Comas automated canning line which provides flexibility and consistent quality in volumes to suit customer demand for our exhaust aftertreatment systems, helping to support customers across many industry sectors including maritime, on road, power generation, agriculture, non-road mobile machinery, and rail.

This is complemented by a Comas servo press with a capacity of 80 tonne, delivering enhanced features including precision control over both speed and position and the large bed area can accommodate larger tools meaning greater flexibility for customers.

The press is driven by twin servo motors rather than being hydraulically powered. This gives greater flexibility in meeting operational and production targets for pre-forming and final forming strokes and unique programming for each tool to ensure quality and precision in manufactured components.

Finally, a large-scale exhaust aftertreatment welding platform has brought an enhanced level of accuracy to production capabilities, allowing us to support some of the largest engine manufacturers in the world with precision engineering, particularly in the maritime and power generation sectors.

The installation of Indeva lifting equipment has reduced the amount of manual lifting and manoeuvring of our products carried out by our workforce through assisted lifting for a seamless operation.

Additionally, the installation of Kardex units to streamline our inventory management and create more manufacturing space also reduces potential risks for our team, bringing HSE benefits.

Greg Kent, Operations Director, said: “These investments support our vision for the business and also our Environmental, Social and Governance values that are helping to determine the future of the business.

“By improving efficiencies, reducing risk, and considering the impact we make in all aspects of our business operations, we will maintain our reputation as a pioneer of emissions reduction technologies and as a responsible supplier, customer and employer.”
