Panel Sizing Line increases output by 40%

Kitchen, bedroom and bathroom furniture manufacturer JJO has invested £500,000 in machinery which reportedly increases output by 40%.

The Anthon Panel Sizing Line replaces the existing machine, which was purchased in 2006, and is capable of cutting eight sheets at a time, processing 2950 x 2070mm boards in 15 minutes.

In addition, the machine only operates when panel cutting is required, unlike its predecessor, making it more eco-efficient.

The £500,000investment forms part of a £1.5million investment, which has taken place over the past 12 months.
