An automatic panel bender when specialist workers are in short supply: as part of the IDEAL AKE Group, AKE Ausseer Kälte- und Edelstahltechnik GmbH is a specialist in the custom design of refrigerated display cases from a batch-one order. In order to reduce the workload for specialist workers especially on press brakes, this company from Styria invested in Salvagnini’s P1 automatic panel bender about a year ago. Since then, the company has become convinced of this lean, 8 m2 compact bending solution with extremely high repeat accuracy. Furthermore, the machine requires only about a quarter of the time needed by existing press brakes for the production of various parts, such as trays for refrigerated wells.
