The 20 gauge Pittsburgh rollforming 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 (see right for list of outboard-mounted auxiliary roll sets).
An optional Auto-Guide Power Flanger attachment is available for the 20 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.
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. Also, if you just do not have the budget to own the “best” today, we want to help. Please talk to us about financing or tolling – it can make an enormous difference for you.
