William Morrison’s Supermarket, one of the leading Supermarket chains in the UK required a major overhaul to the loading bay at their Stockport Store which involved the removal of some large heavy duty industrial gates and fencing and the fitting of a new electrically operated roller shutter door.

The whole contract was completed over a 48 hour period and was performed to the satisfaction of Morrison’s senior surveyor Peter Monaghan who has praised the works that were carried out without disruption to the customer.

3D Printer – Diamond Roll Up Doors

Diamond Roll Up Door, Inc. recently purchased a small 3D printer to assist/aid the design of new parts for their roller shutter doors. Currently Diamond has several new projects which require new parts to make the complete assembly. One project is a utility body roll up bed cover. The entire door was initially drawn up in 3D SolidWorks. Drawings were sent from SolidWorks to the printer and small sample parts were printed on the 3D printer to ensure functionality and design. Internally designing and creating the first three parts has been extremely economical. Three prototype parts would have been more than the cost of the printer. The picture shows the three parts and a demo frog which was already programed into the printer.
