The 14, 16 and 18 gauge Pittsburgh sheet metal machines have 7 forming stations with two forming positions. One inboard position forms the Pittsburgh lock, and one auxiliary or outboard position has the capability of forming 1 of 8 different profiles depending on which auxiliary roll set is ordered.
The Model 20 and Model 20 SuperSpeed Pittsburgh sheet metal machines have 5 forming stations with 2 forming positions. One inboard forming position forms the Pittsburgh lock and one auxiliary or outboard forming position has the capability of forming 1 of 3 different profiles. Forming speeds are listed in the chart above. Standard with Lockformer® quality construction, these machines have motors; high precision needle-type bearings; heavy ¾” chassis plate; case hardened and ground roll shafts; and arc welded steel stands protected with Lockformer’s top-quality primer and paint finish. Alemite grease fittings are easily accessible from a central lubrication panel.
The 24 gauge Pittsburgh sheet metal machine has 5 forming stations and 1 inboard forming position. The forming chassis is constructed of 1/2″ steel plate. This machine is compact and lightweight and can easily be taken to the job site! An optional Auto-Guide Power Flanger attachment is available for the 24 gauge Pittsburgh machine. The flanging attachment follows any edge straight of irregular while forming a 7/32 (outside) flange height. Just turn up a starting flange in the table slot, feed materials into the rolls and let go. Handles radii down to 3.25″ or 1.375″ manually at speeds of 16 – 18 fpm.
A superior product brand because it has earned the reputation for unrivaled quality, performance and value. Renowned for its design and CAD to CAM solution, the VulcanPlus outperforms other HVAC Plasma cutting systems..state-of-the-art in every detail and component.
The next evolution in the Vulcan cutting systems is the Laser-Max 1.5. With minimal heat affected zone on the cut edge, the parts coming off the machine will cause less wear to downstream fabrication equipment. Minimal kerf combined with 4-axis controls enable the cutting of intricate patterns. Laser cutting uses less heat – edges are not hardened leading to less wear and tear on other machinery. Exclusive Patent – pending technology allows operator to access parts directly from the table and eliminates need for a pallet shuttle system. Coil feeding made easy as full table enclosure is eliminated – Laser-Max 1.5 can be sheet or coil fed. Running speed up to 1,400 inches/minute on thinner materials (26ga). All rack and pinion 4-axis (2-y, 1-x, 1-z) controlled. Z is servo driven with automatic torch height.
The Vulcan 1600 WJ is designed with traditional Lockformer quality and reliability, to eliminate the duct liner bottleneck in your shop while reducing the labor associated with this process. HVAC contractors rely on Vulcan’s insulation cutting software and table to increase shop productivity, reduce waste, and improve their bottom line.
‘S’ cleats and more. A flexible Lockformer, designed for super high productivity of inboard cleats. The triplex design has two inboard and two outboard forming positions allowing bearing support on both sides of the profile. The top plate and roll assembly are split into three zones with each having special design details like knurled rolls and angled guides to keep material moving through the machine in a straight line. These zones also can be adjusted by the operator to meet the requirements of a wide variety of gauges.
The Button Punch Snap Lock Machine forms a two-piece seam that greatly simplifies ductwork assembly. The male seam is a button, the female seam is a lock, and the two snap together for a flush corner. This machine can form 20 to 26-gauge sheet metal into female locks on the inboard and button punched right angle flanges on outboard rolls at speeds of 60-65 fpm, and are available in seven and nine forming station machines.
This machine provides any shop with a complete work center for fabricating fittings. One side of the dual purpose bending die bends and punches the cheeks for Button Punch Snap Lock 90-degree fittings. Flip the die over and you have a 20 gauge Power Cheek Bender for making right-angle flanges for Pittsburgh fittings. Self contained hydraulic system.
Roll single-direction curves down to a minimum radius of 3-1/2” inside or a 5” outside radius, almost automatically. These punched right-angle flanged curves fit perfectly in the receiver formed on the Lockformer 20 gauge or the 24 gauge Button Punch Snap Lock.
In just one pass, form a shape that combines a conventional “S” cleat with a standing seam for greater strength and rigidity. This seam is adaptable in fabrication of large trunk or branch lines in industrial and commercial heating and ventilating ducts. Included are double-extended auxiliary shafts for a variety of choices for optional rollform tooling. The design integrity and quality construction of its 10-station configuration will provide years of trouble-free service.
Beading is a cost-conscious way to stiffen ductwork. It is 5 times faster than the old method, cross-braking, and uses only one operator. Designed to meet the requirements of SMACNA, this ductwork prep machine produces 5 beads on 12″ centers and is adjustable to 3/16″ depth. A convenient handwheel raises or lowers, the top roll assembly to set depth of bead. The top and bottom rollers are kept parallel with adjustable screw and pillow block assemblies connected by a link chain. Individual collared beading rolls are replaceable. Feed rolls are self-compensating over the entire gauge range. Double entrance feed bars are provided so that material can be gauged from either left or right side.
Turn perfect flanges on elbows or other curved fittings as fast as you can notch them
20 gauge MAX
The TDC V Rollformer has 12 forming stations and produces TDC™ flanges at speeds of up to 50 feet per minute. This is the only transverse duct connector machine on the market certified to comply with SMACNA Duct Connector Standard (DCS) T-25a based on actual laboratory tests across the full range of water gauges.
Famous Lockformer® quality construction with an industrial motor; high precision bearings; heavy duty three zone chassis; plate head construction; hardened and ground roll shafts all protected with Lockformer®’s top-quality primer and paint finish. Optional rolls are available for TDC Clip production.
These ductwork prep machines automatically follow any edge –curved or straight. Use the convenient table slot to turn up a “starting flange” and let it go! A calibrated dial can be set for radii as small as 3-1/4” (or 2” when auto-guide is de-activated). Automatically flange 16 to 24 gauge material at speeds of 18 fpm. A non-releasing type head is suitable for open-end fittings, straight and irregular curves.
