The system generates a fantastic production flow 24 hours a day. This is the largest installation of its kind in Northern Europe with its 75 meters in length, 8,5 meters in height and with a capacity of 450 shelves each 3,000 kg.
With it's scissors this full-automatic CNC punching machine cuts square and rectangular shapes to perfection, in lengths up to 1,5 meters. Typically it produces profiles, OE-bends, inner and outer side pieces and parts for support. Automatically fed by the night-train.
Our laser punching machine is extremely effective and precise even when cutting around shapes. It manages to produce 6,5 meters per minute (round shapes). Automatically fed by night-train.
