Build your production process in a modular way with great add-ons

With its countless possibilities, the PBL-2550 changes the way you work. The standardized modular structure and versatile Add-ons create a unique sheet metal production line tailored for your company. Whether your Steel Cabinets end up in a (sports) school, office, medical institution, library or museum. With this powerful sheet metal production line you can do everything you do even faster every day. From punching to bending and from welding to automatic unloading.

Add-on: Punching

Production process from Sheet to Steel Cabinet

Punching and bending of sheet metal is used when flexibility plays an important role in your production process. Think of different orders that come in through your webshop. The orders are demand-driven and often have to be produced in different variants. With the help of this module you can quickly respond to customer questions and shorten delivery times.

Production process from Coil to Steel Cabinet

This is the best solution when higher productivity is important to you. Characteristic for this are: large production numbers, where you can deliver from stock. Side cutters in the punching station increase flexibility, eliminating the need for coil changes and increasing the availability of your line. In summary: higher productivity, flexibility and lower costs.

Add-on: Robotic welding

All panels can be produced separately and, if desired, welded together using a robot cell. The result is a welding production cell that produces continuously and yields a substantial saving on manpower.

Add-on: AGVs for automated stacking

With this add-on it is possible to set up a fully automated stacking process for your Steel Cabinets. With the help of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) panels are moved fully autonomously to the next production process. With this you realize faster presentations because no operator is needed to move pallets with a pump truck or forklift.
