As the Mighton Machinery range from Mighton Products continues to gain momentum following its 2016 launch, it has earned the company high praise from a number of skilled joinery firms across the country, with the latest review coming from Swift Joinery Manufacturers Ltd.
The Castleford-based joinery specialist was quick to commend the speed and quality of Mighton’s X-Cut™ Glazing Bead Jointing Machine, as Steve Greenwood explains. “We purchased the machine 18 months ago due to high demand for plant-on Georgian Bars, and by far the most beneficial feature of the machine is its speed. It’s proven to be a tremendous time saver on production without compromising on accuracy; we cannot fault the quality of the manufacture on the joints.”
Drawing on significant personal joinery experience, the Mighton Machinery range came about following months of research and development by Chairman Mike Derham and the Mighton team. The range of machines is designed to make joinery production quicker, easier and more efficient for both the small or large scale operator. The popular semi-automatic Mighton X-Cut™ machine produces perfect cross-joints on glazing beads, coming complete with tooling to suit the timber profile of the user’s choosing. Accurate and consistent, it allows for simple tool changes and no lengthy manuals mean it’s quick to set up and easy to operate, something Steve can vouch for: “We took advantage of a visit from the Mighton Mobile Demo Van which we found incredibly helpful. We were able to see first-hand just how straightforward the X-Cut™ machine was set up and operate.”
With 16 years in the joinery industry, Steve and his team of 20 have been buying Sash Lift and Eyes, Angel Ventlock® Window Restrictors and Securefitch® Fasteners from Mighton for 10 years.
Mighton’s Chairman Mike Derham adds: “With many years combined experience between the team, Swift Joinery has grown to become a true specialist in the manufacture of bespoke timber windows and doors. Manufacturing and building 95% of their products at their Castleford site, they are able to oversee every aspect of production, ensuring that their bespoke design and hand-crafted products are built to each customer’s exacting standards. We are pleased to hear that the X-Cut™ machine has contributed to the speed and accuracy of their production, as one of the foundations our machinery range was built on was saving our joinery customers both time and money by simplifying and speeding up the manufacturing process.
“As the Mighton Machines range continues to pique interest, we are thrilled to announce that a dedicated catalogue has been introduced this year, packed with product info, case studies and information on the free demonstrations that we offer.”
