New investment by Panel SystemsSheffield-based manufacturer Panel Systems (www.panelsystems.co.uk) reports that it has invested in two new adhesive spray booths.

The business, which creates architectural, decorative and composite panels, has invested £85,000 in an automated and programmable system, plus a smaller manual booth for bespoke projects.

Panel Systems provides architectural composite panels that are used by window and curtain walling contractors to create facades for new and refurbished buildings.

Operations manager Sue Stafford said: “The new automated spray booth gives better control of the spray pattern and adhesive. This will help enhance product performance when bonding panels and also ensures that minimal adhesive is wasted.

“The system is fully programmable and should save time and improve efficiency in our factory. The manual booth will give us greater flexibility to bond panels using bespoke adhesive to meet customer requirements.”

The company says that the investment comes less than two years since it spent £180,000 on a new CNC punch press to enable it to expand its metal-fabrication services.

“This machine meant that the company could create more complex pressed metal components from steel and aluminium for the architectural and OEM (original equipment manufacturer) markets.”
