Despite the challenges this year for the UK manufacturing industry, SPE continues to invest in technology. In addition to our recent 3DM Printer the Company has also recently purchased a Matsuura MX 850 multi-pallet machine to enhance our lights-out capability. This investment is the most significant to date on any single machine in SPE’s history !

SPE decided to invest in the MX-850 to ensure we continue to enhance our capacity efficiently through multi-pallet loading systems, reducing lead times across the business. SPE are serious about automation and the MX-850 helps to reduce scheduled downtime impacting positively on our customers demands. This investment during a global crisis shows our commitment to supplying our customers with excellence and reliability – our latest machine utilisation figures show an impressive 98% for our new addition!
