Cutting complex shapes within a confined space

The brief

Camp Weerter Zeilmakerij (CWZ), a Dutch manufacturer of bespoke marquees and heavy duty tents, wanted to take its cutting function in-house. They needed a machine which could: cut complex shapes; not require additional staff to operate it and; fit within their existing factory.

Our solution

The Genesis Conveyorised Cutter met the company’s brief by offering versatility and value-for-money with a space-saving design. Our after sales support added real value by ensuring staff could get the best out of the machine, including 24-hour operation to maximise return. Our staff travelled to Holland to install the machine and train staff as well as providing remote support while everyone got up to speed.

Their verdict

Patrick Camp, managing director of CWZ, said: “Apart from being extremely competitive on price, the Genesis machine had the conveyor option I needed.  As well as the complex shapes we originally specified the Genesis 2300 for, it is now cutting simple shapes, which we previously did by hand, so we’re saving even more time and reducing material wastage.

“BW has lived up to its reputation for after-sales support. Without doubt it has made a really big difference to our business.”

The technical specification

The Genesis Conveyorised Cutter is one of the newest additions to our portfolio. Its multi-tool head can carry rotary or fixed blades as well as BW’s vibratory blade. In addition, the driven ‘pizza wheel’ makes it the perfect choice for a wide range of applications.
