Christmas Closing

With 2019 coming to a close shortly, we are still as busy as ever on the shop floor producing your orders, with the addition of Christmas tunes turning up the festive cheer!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your custom over the last 12 months, you’ve helped make it another incredible year. We have been smashing targets, expanding the team, grown our machine shop by two new powerful DMG Moris, and rearranged the shop floor twice to accommodate more machinery and racking.

We close the business for the Christmas break on Friday 20th December and re-open on Thursday 2nd January 2020. From all of us at Vaplas, we wish you a very Merry Christmas, and a very Happy New Year!

Welcome to the team

Vaplas is pleased to welcome two new members of staff this month; Both Shaun and Dimitiri will be operating the Routers and have settled in well so far. Shaun is Yorkshire born and bred so he should do well, and Dimitiri is from further afield so we will enjoy showing him the Yorkshire way! Welcome to the team.

Quality and Service

Vaplas continues to re-invest during 2019 with new inspection machinery to assist and improve their already stringent quality procedures.

The new Keyence Image Dimension Measurement System will provide enhanced quality controls at Vaplas by using automatic data recording and delivering inspection reports with the touch of a button. The machine is able to measure up to 99 dimensions in seconds.

With such quick and accurate inspection times this piece of equipment is sure to increase Vaplas’s productivity and output whilst still ensuring the customer gets their perfect parts within the set tolerances.

Providing consistent results is another benefit of this state of the art machinery which will help keep Vaplas at the top of their game.
