“Although Japan is a really difficult market to crack, it has become much more accepting of collaborations with worldwide partners in recent years.” — Neil Burns, Director Croft Filters (UK)

These cone filters have been drawn to suit the customers required dimensions, the CAD file has then been transferred to the Punch Press , a sheet of Stainless Steel of the correct grade and thickness has then been punched with the perforated hole pattern and also the outer shape nibbled out , this is then hand formed on a mandrel. TIG Welding the seam to form the cone is the next operation
Currently they are awaiting a mesh to arrive from one of our wire weaver suppliers in Germany. This mesh will then be resistance welded to the cone support and then delivered early in the New Year to our customer.
This customer is also a British manufacturer. Their products flavours and fragrances.
So in the spring you may taste a flavour or a breath a fragrance that has passed through a Croft Filter!
But from Croft's prospective it’s having the skills to be able to take a customers idea as to what they want and deliver products that do just that. Our secret ingredient is the capabilities of the manufacturing staff that we have. Between them they have a average length of service time of 11.25 years each in the Croft workshop each having their own skills range but with enough overlap to offer fantastic British made solutions.
Well done everyone and thanks to the customers who give us these challenges !
