Wesgar is proud to announce the long-awaited arrival of a state-of-the-art panel bender designed and manufactured by Salvagnini in Italy. The P2L-2120 panel bender complements Wesgar’s growing bank of robotic forming machines and is a step towards tackling the current labor shortage. This leading-edge panel bender is designed to handle short and long runs with ease, is ideal for Wesgar’s high-mix, low-volume environment, and has the capacity to keep pace with Wesgar’s rapid growth.
“We had a need for a panel bender of this caliber two years ago when we placed our order with Salvagnini in Italy. The global pandemic slowed the delivery down, and in the meantime, our need has grown significantly in tandem with our growth. The new state-of-the-art panel bender is installed and 100% operational. The P2L-2120 panel bender is proving to be the work-horse we expected; already operational 100% of the time, it has improved efficiencies and is shortening lead times,” says Nash Kassam, President of Wesgar.
