Wienerberger Ltd – Warnham, UK

Warnham Brick Factory in West Sussex is one of the 197 Wienerberger production sites located in 30 countries worldwide. Founded in 1819 and with headquarters in Vienna, Wienerberger Building Solutions is the world’s largest producer of bricks and clay blocks, as well as the market leader for clay roof tiles.

I knew that some of the other Wienerberger sites had already purchased some NDC PrediktIR moisture gauges and I had heard that they were really improving the production processes and quality control procedures. I met up with some of the LIMAB team at ClayTech, and I was immediately impressed with their expertise and what they had to offer. After discussions with NDC Product Specialist, we went ahead and purchased four NDC PrediktIR gauges. The gauges have really helped us to monitor and have greater control of our water input system and we are already getting some really useful data. I would certainly purchase from LIMAB again in the future.

When rebuilding one of our clamshell furnaces we opted for four Impac ISR 6 pyrometers for precise temperature measurement. I am very impressed with the quality of every component from the cooling jackets to the sensors themselves, which seem exceptionally well made. I would not hesitate to contact LIMAB in the future for any other applications that I may need help/equipment for.

We wanted to improve the accuracy and repeatability of the automated length cutting operation on our Agnati corrugator. From the first meeting, it was clear that LIMAB have a lot of experience in this area and they replaced our mechanical encoder with a LaserSpeed. The implementation of the LaserSpeed has enabled us to achieve our original goal and it has ultimately improved the quality of the products that we are supplying to our customers.

We got in touch with LIMAB UK because we needed a product that would enable us to reliably and accurately test the seal integrity of the pouches coming off our new packing line. I was already aware of the bubble emission testing method as I had witnessed it at other manufacturing plants. So, knowing that this was the solution that I required, I contacted three potential suppliers. Immediately I was impressed with LIMAB’s commitment to our enquiry. They were more than willing to provide us with a demonstration, which proved to be very useful and throughout the process, they displayed excellent customer service and were extremely professional and knowledgeable. I am really pleased with the quality and usability of the LeakVIEW. It has enabled us to understand how our pouches perform in a range of conditions and we are now confident that the pouches we are supplying to our customers are of a very high standard. I would have no hesitation in recommending LIMAB and the Dynascan brand.

Butt Foods – Nottingham, UK

Butt Foods is a family-owned bakery business in Nottingham that has been baking naan bread since 1990 and now supplies flatbreads, sub rolls, and other specialty bread to the developing foodservice sector.


We initially contacted LIMAB UK as we wanted to ensure that the naan breads that we were supplying to our customers were of the utmost quality and were as fresh as possible at the point of purchase. We, therefore, needed a solution that would allow us to test the seal integrity of the packaging and so after discussions with the highly knowledgeable staff at LIMAB, they recommended a Dynascan LeakVIEW.  Throughout the purchase process, we were impressed with the expertise of all the staff at LIMAB, the support that they provided and the ultimate product that they supplied.
