Preston Technical: the home of TabTech

Preston Technical is one of the foremost manufacturers of industrial consumable products in the UK. From the 14,000 square foot facility located in Preston, we supply bespoke shapes, sizes and material combinations of products as diverse as self-adhesive tape to coated abrasives. Our entire focus is providing innovative solutions to customer product and process problems backed with our enviable reputation for quality of product and service delivery.

Preston Technical are passionate about their Mission which is to help make British industry lead the way by providing cutting edge solutions. We do this by utilising an expansive array of product converting equipment which includes die cutting (flat bed, rotary and laser), slitting (rewind or lathe), rewinding, laminating, guillotining, sheeting, and bonding a vast range of materials and substrates to specific customer requirements.

We offer a comprehensive product design service with full CAD facility and laser manufacture of die cut conversions to provide a fast, efficient prototyping and sample service backed up with design drawings to satisfy industry requirements such as PPAP and ISIR. We have a flexible, multi skilled workforce operating to lean manufacturing principles which enables us to deliver a strong service ethos and OTIF promise to our customers. Preston Technical has the latest accreditation to ISO 9001 standard and also holds preferred supplier status and accreditation with a number of global manufacturing customers.

The focus on innovation at Preston Technical has resulted in the recent launch of the TabTech product.

The major benefits of TabTech is that it significantly reduces the cost of manufacturing die cut tape – especially when producing narrow width dimensional parts – and reduces the amount of waste produced through conventional die cutting processes which has a significant environmental impact. The major user benefit is that it is much easier to apply the die cut tape to a customer’s product whilst quickly and easily removing the tape protective liner.

The TabTech innovation helps to fulfil the Preston Technical Mission of making British industry lead the way by increasing the cost competitiveness of customer manufacturing processes and to help achieve the Vision for Preston Technical to be recognised as the most innovative and diversified British company in the industrial product conversion segment.
