Machining & Machining Services

Our Machining and Machining Services offer customers real ‘added-value’. Like the savings that can be made when compared with running your own machining operation, as well as the greater flexibility you have and therefore the better business opportunities you can take.

Over recent years Brooks Bros has invested massively (and continues to do so) in the very latest woodworking technology. Each one of our UK sites has the facilities to take supplying timber several steps down the line in order to deliver competitively priced, finished timber products.

Today, processing timber demands intelligent system solutions covering a number of operations:
from sawing through to delivery – and at every step in between. We have tended to build our systems around the finest German produced machines and systems (Raimann ripsaws and Weinig Powermat moulders feature heavily in our inventory) to give us consistent, top quality production.

Sawing, Cross-cutting & Log Band Milling

Sawing | Cross-cutting | Log Band Milling

Around the Brooks Bros sites we have five Raimann ProfiRip KM 310M multi-rip saws and a number of high speed, fully automated, optimising defecting crosscuts and beam saws. The Brooks Bros Sewstern site operates one of the few band mill saws in the UK which still cuts predominantly European Oak and Douglas Fir logs into bespoke beam sizes to meet customers’ specific size and quality requirements.

Tooling

Our new and very latest fully automatic Weinig Rondamat 1000 CNC, grinds and sharpens tools autonomously to an accuracy level which was previously unachievable. From a sample, a description or preferably a fully dimensioned drawing, a technical CAD drawing is created using Weinig’s Moulder Master software, which now negates the need for templates. This provides exceptional tool accuracy and is the fundamental basis for producing the very best, top quality profiles.

Profile moulding

Our state-of-the-art mill facilities are equipped with a range of 23 moulders (including Weinig Powermat 500, 1000, 1500 and 3000 new generation moulders). The list of features, benefits and advantages that these machines offer includes; exceptionally high cutter speeds, width capabilities of up to 300mm and world class set up speeds. Several of our moulders are fitted with a 7th universal head, enabling us to produce particularly difficult profiles in a single pass. So, whether it’s a large batch production run or a small multiple set-up job, a unique profile that needs to be matched or a more standard profile, producing accurate and competitively priced profiles to the highest possible standard of finish is something Brooks Bros has the expertise and ability to excel in.

Finger Jointing

Our Grecon Profijoint finger jointing line produces extremely accurate and neat finger joints enabling Brooks Bros to offer cladding, decking and other profiles in exact lengths (to reduce waste) and in extremely long lengths (to avoid unsightly butt joints in situ). Finger jointing can also provide cost savings by using cheaper shorts jointed to create long premium lengths.

Laminating

Laminated timber is made by gluing together and clamping accurately machined defect-free lamellas of solid timber. Our Taylor Laminating Press produces laminated timber sections up to 150mm x 900mm x 4.9m.

Check out Brookstech Laminated Timber Products – a range of PAR laminated timber sections, supplied in a variety of standard sizes and lengths, ready to convert into window, door and staircase components.
