The Button Punch Snap Lock Machines form 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. These machines can form 20 to 30 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. Not only do these locks assemble twice as fast as traditional methods, but because the two pieces nest, they are easier to transport too.
We invite you to compare Mestek Machinery’s robust and broad capability profile to any of our competitors. These capabilities define our ability to manufacture equipment that is reliable and long-lived -- giving you years more of return on investment. Oftentimes, if one of our competitors gave you the equipment for free our long-term value would prove to be better even at a premium of 20% or more. If you are interested in proving this to yourself, please check out our ROI calculations section and then give us a call about the productivity of our Lockformer, Iowa Precision, Engel, Lion and ISM brand equipment. It may be the difference between success and failure in your marketplace. We know it could be the difference between making a living and creating wealth.
