Bootle Containers Invests In A Guillotine

Bootle Containers Invests In A Guillotine

Sacré bleu! A guillotine? Don’t worry, we’re not bringing back that old-school French contraption! We have just got a Amada GSII 840 guillotine! Pretty exciting eh?

What is a Amada GSII 840 guillotine you ask? Well that’s a very good question and here at Bootle Containers we are the best people to answer it.

After our recent investment of the new Amada 4m press brake, which is a very impressive bit of kit we decided to splash out on something else a bit fancier.

The Amada GSII 840 guillotine is the leading piece of equipment when it comes to sheet metal cutting and we feel confident that our new investment will benefit our customers greatly.

With a cutting thickness for steel a nifty 8 mm and a 4 metre plus capacity this will mean greater precision, better accuracy of cut components and reduced lead times. All Continue Reading →

Multi-Axis Hybrid Press-Brakes Ahoy!

Multi-Axis Hybrid Press-Brakes Ahoy!

We don’t know if it’s the word ‘multi-axis’ or the word ‘hybrid’ that makes this machine sound so cool! Maybe it’s not the name that makes is so good, maybe it’s the fact that it is yet more state of the art technology at Bootle Containers! We love it and we know that our customers will too! As always we have their needs in mind, that’s why we make investment after investment and keep up to date with all the technological breakthroughs in the container industry.

To stay ahead in the game and offer all of our customers the best service possible we have purchased a Amada 4 metre HFT 220 press brake. Multi-axis press brakes are what we in the business call a bending machine. Not such a snazzy name but that’s Continue Reading →

Life Before Freight Containers

Life Before Freight Containers

Try if you can to imagine a time without freight containers. Us humans have always had the urge to travel and move across the world. Starting with the ancient Egyptians, the Greeks and the Romans, we have always needed to move large amounts of goods to and from places. Back then, we moved around very precious cargo like, jewels, gold and even spices and silk. These things were priceless but the way we transported them left a lot to be desired.

You’ve probably seen the old fashioned way in a scene from a film. Barrels and barrels being carried up and down a gangplank by flustered dock workers. Huge rat infested crates and sacks of grain that have been nibbled open! Thank God that is all in the past!
