Additional 30,000 sq. ft. Indoor Storage Space Completed
We have recently completed a major expansion of our indoor Fabrication and Storage facilities, as well as updating our gated Outdoor Storage area. The additional 30,000 sq ft. indoor storage area not only allows for three more shipping bays, but also allows us to expand our designated fabrication areas.
With the increased indoor storage space we have been able to expanded the Production areas. We have designed our work flow with designated modular station areas, that can be easily configured to produce a specific product on a days notice. These modular ongoing and post processing areas are called FLEX Lines. We now have increased capacity to manage six of these lines, that can be individually configured to meet all of our client needs.
Robot Waterjet – 2019
Pine Valley has installed a Dual Arm, 6 axis Robot Waterjet Cutter that will augment our 2D MultiCam CNC Waterjet Cutter. The new Robot Waterjet will allow 3D compound cutting of foam and plastic materials. Additional options include: 2D cutting, cleaning and slitting. Angled cutting allows PVP to design package configurations that have higher parts density and tighter parts fitting. This new piece of automated equipment will allow us to mass produce customized packaging solutions in greater volumes for our customers at cost effective pricing.
The robot waterjet cutting systems, will provide the ideal solution to producing high volume automotive foam components, working with greater efficiency and producing cleaner cut edges that do not require additional attention.
Bringing automation to this process provides significant increases in throughput and produces more consistent test samples, while reducing the design revision process. Final designs will reach the OEM or Tier 1 much faster.
