ROBOTIC AUTOMATION AND TRADITIONAL COPPERSMITHING At Copper Industries and LB Cylinders, old and new skills come together seamlessly in the manufacturing process to create the highest standards. Their primary focus is on supplying superior hot water cylinders and delivering the best quality and service. Every single cylinder is carefully crafted and double-checked to ensure 100% customer satisfaction. The companies pride themselves as master coppersmiths and have an appreciation and love of the traditional craft, but innovation and R&D also live happily alongside their traditional methods.

Traditional skills can and should be celebrated and retained, and they have found a way to do this while at the same time benefiting from advancing technologies. In recent years, the companies have heavily invested in robotics and robotic automation within manufacturing. Their innovation, attention to detail and dedication to the quality of products have led to Copper Industries and LB Cylinders being awarded the internationally recognised ISO 9001 quality assurance certification, which ensures that products are manufactured to the highest standard and best practice governing the production of mild steel, stainless steel and copper cylinders.

THE MAXIPOD The companies’ flagship product is acclaimed as the most sophisticated hot water cylinder on the market, with great speed and intelligence. The indirect cylinder provides a hot water system that delivers fresh drinkable cold and heated water straight to taps. The Maxi Pod is both pressurised and vented to control any energy input, no matter what heat source is chosen by the homeowner, including solar energy, a multi-fuel stove, or a gas, oil or electric boiler. Thermal stores like the MaxiPod do not need annual servicing like other hot water generators on the market. This saves money on servicing and eliminates the risk of boiler explosions. The MaxiPod is designed to keep the water constantly moving, thus reducing the cost of energy bills. This also significantly reduces lower standing heat loss, making it a more sustainable heated water provider, as energy created isn’t lost. The clever design means that fresh, hot water is always available on demand, and the system does not waste energy reheating the entire cylinder each time.
