December is a month were most companies are winding down for Christmas, but Greenfield Engineering took delivery of the latest P1 Salvagnini electric panel bender. The new machine was ready for production from the 3rd of January and is guaranteed to add additional capacity and flexibility to the bending section. The new investment of £300,000 will give more production efficiencies and maintain exceptional customer service levels. The new Salvagnini P1 will offer more automated bending process on smaller panels and cabinets adding folding features such as hemming, and radii bending to complicated parts all using the same tooling. The new equipment will be an important part in the Greenfield arsenal with fast automatic tool change which in turn will yield a competitive advantage for our customers.

Simon Walker Operations Director added; “Some of the acquisitions that we have made in the past have taken time to bed in before they have started to have any impact on production. Certainly, with the new P1 panel bender that won’t be the case because it will make a difference immediately! The footprint of the P1 couldn’t be a better fit for a panel bender sitting alongside the larger P4.

When I was introduced to panel bending I found this technology  really changed the way I think about processing and folding sheet metal.”
