Makita UK Ltd join ICMMA to help set standards for the use of robotics in the cleaning industry
Makita manufactures its tools in plants across the globe, from its headquarters in Japan to here, in the UK. Their Telford manufacturing plant is the only full-production facility for power tools in the UK and has been successfully running construction on many of their top line cordless power tools since 1991.
At the heart of our manufacturing process is the belief that for a good tool you need a good motor, and Makita makes every effort to make sure our motors are of the best quality. They source the absolute best raw materials and components in order to build the most powerful and efficient motors we can imagine.
Premium grade steel is used to produce armature shafts and gears, and only steel of the highest grade is used, whilst high grade magnetic copper wire goes into each and every one of our tools to ensure superior current flow whilst withstanding extreme temperatures.
Their quality control tests each, and every, machine that leaves our manufacturing plants. Nothing is left untested; on the motor alone we perform 19 extensive tests!
Alongside ICMMA, Makita are members of the HSE’s Construction Dust Partnership and are committed to delivering effective solutions and services that meet customers requirements and improving productivity. Challenging themselves through initiatives which deliver the high standards expected of the Makita brand while reducing the risks that users are exposed to.
Makita offers a wide range of products with integrated dust collection systems and also compact battery operated dust collection systems that enable you to work safely without losing the freedom that cordless products offer. They also offer vacuum cleaners for the quick clearing of work areas.
Kevin Webb, Chairman of ICMMA’s Technical Committee said “On behalf of all our other members I am delighted that Makita UK want to join our other industry members and contribute to our current workplan. Their membership application was unanimously supported and their contribution to creating standards for the use of robotics in cleaning machinery manufacture is very much welcomed.”
