Modplan Chooses KombimatecThe HDX Cross Welder saves time, improves quality and boosts profits.


Newport-based Modplan are among a growing number of fabricators who are being convinced of the benefits that Kombimatec’s HDX cross welder offers.

The Network Veka fabricator recently bought two machines for two of its three sites to provide a better, more consistent finish to frames, and a quicker turnaround.

The HDX cross welder welds in one cycle, which offers faster crucifix fabrication times. The operator simply cuts four arrow heads, which means no vee notch cutting, and no reverse butt welding. It also means they don’t have to insert and withdraw reinforcement, and that joint mismatching at the centre of the cross is no longer an issue.

The operator benefits too – it’s no longer necessary to circle different machines to produce a cross (like in the old method), and safety is improved because there is no need to remove the transom leg guard on the vee notch saw.

Modplan’s maintenance manager, Paul Silk, also explained that the fact that Kombimatec is based in the UK had a major impact on the company’s choice. “We have other machines from Italy and Germany, and it can be really awkward to source spare parts,” he said. “Having your machinery supplier based in the UK can be a real benefit to the smooth operation of your business.”

However, it is the fact that the HDX cross welder can produce a perfect cross in under two minutes that it winning customers over. “This machine can make an immediate impact on fabricators’ production times, which will reduce manufacturing costs and result in higher profits,” Derek Parsons, Kombimatec’s managing director said. “Once a fabricator starts welding this way, they never look back!”.
