MILAN, ITALY -- Cannon SpA has begun production of turnkey-plant polyurethane and composites equipment at a new factory in Caronno Pertusella, north of Milan.

The factory will assemble large molding machines for automotive parts and long-foam laminators for insulated panels for refrigerators. It's part of Cannon's reorganization of its manufacturing centers that specialize in automotive, refrigeration, composites, thermoforming and aluminum die-casting, all under Cannon Ergos.

Cannon fully manufactures the turnkey plants and does final testing, them ships the equipment to the customer site for installation.

Canon built the new 53,800-square-foot plant north of its Milan headquarters. The building has 40-foot-high ceilings. The facility can produce systems for a range of markets, such as automotive plants for seats and sound-insulation elements, compression molding and resin transfer molding for composites, rigid foam laminators for sandwich panels and large thermoformers.

Company officials officially inaugurated the factory at a Christmas party held Dec. 21.

Cannon will show off its turnkey capabilities at the JEC Composites show in Paris, March 12-14.
