    Our Skylight Manufacturing Process –
    Automatically Brilliant

    arrow Back to blog 15th October 2014

    At Sunsquare we have consistently invested in the latest manufacturing technologies. Our most recent investment has seen the installation of a £250,000 Automatic CNC manufacturing suite.

    Efficiently Automated Skylight Manufacture

    What this means to you, our customer, is that all of our skylights are now manufactured via a fully automated production line ensuring the most consistent quality our industry can offer.


    Our new Tekna 442 5 Axis CNC machining centre effortlessly processes our extruded aluminium profiles to 0.1mm accuracy, allowing our operatives to assemble the frames without the requirement for any manual drilling and, therefore, removing the human error factor. Of course, our Production Manager, Andrzej Smakula, rigorously checks all our assemblies prior to dispatch.


    Our new Multicam 1000 Series CNC Routing centre produces our upstand sections from our own specification insulating sandwich panels. This 3 Axis machine will produce identical quality upstands all day, again to a 0.1mm tolerance.


    All of Sunsquare’s skylights are hand finished and this is where the difference between a good product and an excellent one is revealed. We are committed to excellence and know that this means reliance on our staff to produce the quality we expect. This is why we commit to continual employee improvement programs, training each and every member of staff in the numerous skills required.


    We are extremely proud of our employees and enjoy an environment where mutual respect is key to our success. This has a very positive effect on our company, where staff retention rates are high and morale is even higher.
