New automated mitre saw doubles capacityEast Midlands manufacturer DPI (UK) ( has invested in an automated Elumatec DG104 twin-headed mitre saw to meet the growing demand for its tensioned-fabric displays from the large-format printing trade and creative agencies in the UK and Ireland.

At its factory and new showroom in Castle Donington, DPI (UK) manufactures aluminium frames and light-boxes that are used with tensioned-fabric graphics.

The finished products are wall-mounted, free-standing or suspended from the ceiling, and they can be illuminated. They are widely used in airports and for conferences and exhibitions.

DPI (UK) director Paul Tomlinson said: “We’re incredibly busy at the moment. As we offer the largest variety of profiles for use in tension fabric displays on the market, a massive increase in demand made this investment decision for us.

“This £45,000 saw complements what we have already, doubling our manufacturing capacity and giving us the additional capability to cut variable angles and much larger profiles.

"With a computerised display, what was a manual job is now automated, easier and faster. Elumatic diagnosed and fixed a few teething problems remotely — in an instant.

"We’ve seen an immediate increase in productivity, which means we can meet some very tight lead times.”
