Our factory can undertake customised processing on the entire range of VBU sheet metal trimming machines, from the 400 to the 2200.  Measures proposed include automatic piece loading and unloading, automatic scrap ejection and interfacing with external automation.  This means that the operating level of the machines reaches very high thresholds of autonomy, ensuring minimal intervention by the employee and, consequently, lower production costs.  This makes us more competitive on the international market with faster and more secure economic return on investment.
