Estes Design and Manufacturing believes in providing the best service and quality for our customers. In response to market needs, we have recently added to our robust list of equipment by purchasing a Salvagnini P2lean, which is Salvagnini’s most versatile and productive model of panel bender. The features of the P2lean enable us to run smaller, more economical lot sizes by virtually eliminating setup. With the simple scan of a bar code, the machine control loads the program and configures the tooling – all in a matter of a few seconds. In addition, the machine is configured with Salvagnini’s Mac 2.0 software, which makes it possible for the P2lean to verify bend angles on every bend on every part. For short-run production, this is an unbeatable combination – zero setup + bend angle confirmation.
Whether it is a speed-to-market need for a new product or the need to support your lean initiatives by buying small lots of production parts and having product available just in time, the Salvagnini P2 Lean helps us help you! The key benefits the P2lean offers our customers are:
- Smaller, more economical lot sizes – you can order the quantity you need and avoid inventory costs.
- Faster deliveries on these short-run orders – product available when you need it.
- Improved quality – bend angle confirmation plus Salvagnini’s renowned accuracy and repeatability
- Speed to market – if you’re racing against your competition to get new products to the market, the quick turnaround features of the P2Lean will help you win that race
This machine is the second wave of technology aimed at shortening set-up time, as we added the Amada HG 1003 ATC press brake to our lineup of equipment last year.
