CORNERMATIC PLUS

cornermatic plus iowa precision mestek

The CORNERMATIC PLUS® was specifically designed to address the difficulty with inserting corners into some styles of fitting ductwork. It joins other world- wide successful Cornermatics such as the Dual-Head and the Corner Cadet® in reducing shop labor. Three years in development brings to the trade a machine that can handle any TDC®/TDF® fitting assembled on a bench. The CORNER- MATIC PLUS® automatically and effortlessly inserts and crimps TDC®/TDF® corners in seconds. Lets you do a duct section (eight corners) in about 20 seconds in any gauge, 16 through 26. Generally, tests have shown 80 ducts/hour vs. 15 ducts/hour for manual insertion.

  • Specifically designed for the fabrication of duct fittings – even your toughest inside or outside angle off-set transition fitting from 16-26
  • Insert corners in off-set fittings without needing a secondary ‘straight’ at the flange, No other corner-inserting machine can do this! 
  • Fully automated – no switches or foot pedals – just push in, Cornermatic® Plus™ does the
  • Completes (8) corner inserts in roughly 20 seconds.
  • New quick loading  StrapPak™ packaging technology speeds loading of the new ‘Universal’ corner.
  • Corners feed from below the work-surface allowing a clean, unobstructed work
  • Handles tight square throat elbows and flex
  • Works with SMACNA-conforming, T-25a and T-25b flange and many other flanged duct systems, without changing
  • Three versions available, in addition to the Cornermatic PLUS® , there is the original table mount, Cornermatic PLUS® InGround, or adjustable  version, Cornermatic PLUS® Versa, that can operate at  table height or down “in-floor” for better integration with the workshop environment
  • Bring your fitting productivity up to duct section standards!

KEY FEATURES:

  • Corners are inserted square and fully crimped.
  • No need to change the crimping adjustment when inserting corners in 16 to 26 gauge ducts-all automatically and 26ga corners are tight).
  • Each quick loading box holds 80 corners-loads in ten (10) seconds
  • Corners are shipped presorted and oriented for direct loading into the magazine.
  • No need for hand sorting.
  • Push the ductwork or fitting into the flange guides and the machine automatically does the rest.
  • Adjustable legs to match most bench heights.
  • Will handle any fitting built to SMACNA standards
  • Handles particularly difficult inside angles on off-set transitions with a breeze
  • Easily handles tight square throats
  • Will do odd size fittings such as flex connectors and curbs

MACHINE SPECIFICATIONS

Flange Type: TDC® or TDF®, Gauge Range: 16 - 26 (0.63" - 0.022") (1.6mm - 0.56mm), Cycle Time: 2-1/2 seconds per corner, Air Required: 85 PSI minimum (5 to 6 BAR), Magazine Capacity: 80 corners, Electrical Requirements: 110V/1Ph/60H, Size: 24-1/8"L x 24-1/8"W x 32"H (613mm x 613mm x 812mm), Weight: 700 lbs

CORNERMATIC PLUS VERSA

cornermatic plus versa iowa precision mestek

The Cornermatic Plus Versa is the most flexible unit for production available. The Versa is installed with the capability of sitting on your workshop floor or in-ground, allowing for greater flexibility during production. Raising and lowering takes a simple button press that triggers the extension or retraction of a heavy-duty hydraulic scissor lift. Using the Versa in-ground is beneficial for projects involving large duct and heavier gauge fittings, while the above-ground position is ideal for fitting production.  The Cornermatic Plus inserts corners in off-set fittings without needing a secondary ‘straight’ at the flange, no other corner-inserting machine can do this!  

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Adjustable Versa is designed to fabricate large and small duct fittings in one machine – including tough inside or outside angle off-set transition fittings
  • Set the Cornermatic PLUS® VERSA at floor level and slide over large duct sections and fittings to automatically insert the corners
  • With Pushbutton control, move the Cornermatic PLUS® VERSA up to operator friendly table height when fabricating small fittings
  • Access acute throats to automatically insert all 8 corner
  • StrapPak™ packaging technology enables faster loading of the new ‘Universal’ corner, or conventional TDC/TDF type corners
  • Corners are fed from a clean & unobstructed area below the work surface
  • Capable of handling tight square throat elbows and flex connectors
  • Pre-set to handle SMACNA-conforming T25-a and T25-b flanged duct systems
  • Three version available, in addition to the Cornermatic PLUS® VERSA, there is the original table mounted, Cornermatic PLUS®, or floor level, Cornermatic PLUS® InGround, that operates  “in-floor” for better integration with the workshop environment with large ducts

DUAL HEAD CORNERMATIC CLASSIC

dual head cornermatic classic iowa precision mestek

This CORNERMATIC® machine will operate with all widely available Cornermatic®-type corners and with Mestek Machinery’s revolutionary EZ Connector® corners for “C” and “F” flanges. If you acquire Cornermatic® brand corners from Ductmate, DuroDyne, CL Ward or Mestek Machinery, they will come either (i) oriented and stacked in the shipping carton (250 corner pieces per carton) for quick and easy loading into the 175 corner magazines feeding the top and bottom crimping heads, or (ii) in the NEW StrapPak™ – 80 corners in a double-strapped package (five (5) packages per carton) to be quickly loaded into the magazine directly from the shipping carton. The StrapPak™ eliminates the need to sort and orient the corners before installation. Other suppliers of Cornermatic®-type corners will not have this unique, time-saving feature which eliminates the need to hand-load the corners before installation. Adjustable Dual Head Cornermatic® Classic adds the feature of automatically adjusting the upper crimping head to handle duct from 4′ to 6′ in length. The Dual Head Cornermatic® Classic automatically inserts and crimps specially designed TDC/TDF® style corners in seconds. Lets you do a duct section, eight corners, in about 60 seconds with virtually no physical exertion. Compared to other methods of hand insertion and crimping, it’s a saving of 3 to 6 minutes per section of ductwork depending on size and gauge.

  • Handles duct up to 60″
  • Corners are inserted square and fully crimped.
  • No need to change the crimping adjustment when inserting corners in 18 to 26 gauge ducts,

PLASMA LASER COIL FEED

plasma laser coil feed iowa precision mestek

The Plasma Laser Coil Feed has been designed to feed a plasma or laser-cutting table. It is comprised of a drive motor and a series of rolls to feed and remove coil set from the material. The material is advanced by the operator using an on/off switch attached to an electrical cable. This allows the operator to follow the material to proper location along the cutting table. Drive is by way of entry pinch rolls and exit pinch rolls. Straightening is accomplished with rolls located between the entry and exit rolls, which are controlled by way of a hand wheel for depth penetration. Length of feed is at the operator’s discretion, as the machine does not measure the material. 

Available beading option: 

Down-Bead or Up-Bead pattern is rolled into the coil as it is being fed onto the cutting table. The bead pattern is produced by bead rings that ride in grooves machined into a pair of pinch rolls with the bottom roll powered and the top roll adjustable up and down by means of a hand wheel. The bead pattern is not intended to be a half radius, but more of a rounded shallow vee to form a cross-break in the material for stiffening.
