Panel Systems invests to boost capacity

Panel Systems, the manufacturer of architectural, decorative, lightweight, sandwich and composite panels, has invested in a new state-of-the-art CNC machining centre for its factory in Sheffield.

The new SCM Morbidelli x400 Nesting Machine Centre, includes a 3.1m x 2.1m matrix vacuum flatbed which means the company can now fabricate and router panels up to 3m wide. A 5 axis head, which provides enhanced cutting capabilities, will also enable Panel Systems to provide more decorative designs using an extended range of materials.

In addition, the machine’s integrated 37 position tool holder and 16 position drill block, tool length detection device and Digital NC Module provides faster machining capabilities, which in turn helps to boost production rates and reduce lead times for customers.
