Pland Investment in New Lifting Device

Pland Stainless has invested in a new ‘Elephant Lifting’ Machine for its Leeds facility. The machine is used to manoeuvre large stainless steel sheet materials from stock onto the company’s 4m Bystronic Fiber Laser Machine, used for the precision cutting of stainless steel and essential for the manufacture of the commercial products they produce.

The new machine, which can lift up to 250 kilos, gives Pland the capability to use larger stock size sheets and therefore enhanced nesting of product when looking at yield from the available capacity. It also reduces the risk of operator harm and surface scratching when dealing with larger materials” said Steve Duree, Managing Director.

Pland has been producing stainless steel products, mainly for the commercial market, for over 100 years at their Leeds facility.  Their products are targeted at many sectors including healthcare, sanitaryware, washrooms, laboratory, education, catering, janitorial or their anti-vandal range for secure accommodation.
