Metal forming machinery you need to elevate your sheet metal shop’s production game

Take a look around you. The sheet metal machinery on your shop floor is the backbone of your business. But as an extension of your workforce, knowing what machines to recruit and what to retire can sometimes and more often than not, be a difficult line to draw. Whether you’re a large or small shop, any decision to invest in new machinery should be supported & supplemented by company growth. In order to help you start the dialogue, we gathered six machines on the market that can help transform your shop today and boost overall production in efficient ways.

1. 5′ x 10′ HVAC Dual Side Drive Plasma Table by Em-Pro

Em-Pro 5′ x 10′ HVAC Dual Side Drive Plasma Table is an affordable industrial quality machine – ideal for small to medium fabrication and HVAC shops. Powered by Hypertherm Powermax 45.

Maximum productivity: Finish jobs faster with cut speeds three times greater than oxyfuel on 1/2″ mild steel. Spend less time on grinding and edge preparation due to superior cut and gouge quality.

Low operating costs: Reduce costs with long consumable life and more uptime. Electrode end-of-life detection protects the torch and workpiece from damage by automatically stopping power when the electrode is overused.

Easy-to-use for cutting and gouging: No need to change the air pressure. Smart Sense™ technology ensures that it is always correctly set. Drag cut at full output with a patented shield that reduces dross buildup for smoother cutting. Tackle different jobs with multiple, easy-to-use torch styles.

Built and tested to withstand the harshest conditions: Duramax™ torches are designed for high-impact and heat resistance. SpringStart™ technology ensures consistent starting and a more reliable torch. Low maintenance for maximum uptime.


2. M-Series Lasers by Alpha Laser

The Alpha Lazer™ Fiber M-Series is a modular product family of state-of-the-art flying optics CNC laser cutting machines for the sheet metal industry. Featuring the most cutting-edge cutting head on the market, the Precitec’s sensor is is visualized individually,showing the status of all monitored components in the head. We are proud to offer solutions for all budgets and expectations, covering a wide range of different sheet sizes. Cutting sizes ranges from 5′ x 10′ up to 8′ x 40′ and a tube cutting attachment is available.


3. Diamond Cut CNC Plasma Cutting Table by Machitech Automation

Machitech Diamond Cut CNC Plasma Cutting Table is specially designed for high precision cutting on a heavy unitized frame that can be increased in size as your needs grow. Innovative inverse rail system. Exceptional accuracy and cut quality.


4. C-Series Press Brake by Alpmac

The C Series press brake from Alpmac is for the company where speed of production is top of mind and a multi axis backgauge is a must. Alpmac has pulled out all the stops with the C series and this is really where the saying “You get more for Less” comes into play.  Same as the B series the available sizes are 4’ to 20’ with tonnages from 40 to 1100, but with a 12.2” Stroke and a whopping 19.68” throat depth on most models, this coupled with large selection of available options on the C Series are what truly set it apart.  You say you want a 6 axis backgauge with a DELEM DA69T Control, with the ability to import solid works files, upper and lower hydraulic clamping with a 40” backgauge and a larger stroke and an even deeper throat depth.  Our answer will be ‘Yeah, we can do that!’  Our C Series Alpmac is only limited by your imagination and you will be surprised at the money you save!


5. CNC Folder by Jouanel

The Jouanel PTS3100 10FT x 16GA CNC folder delivers the power, accuracy and efficiency you need to boost productivity. Jouanel folders are optimized for the most commonly used thicknesses and types of materials encountered within the roofing and HVAC industry. The BEST part about them? They boost productivity and are super reliable.



6. BeamCut Systems by Machitech Automation

Why BeamCut you wonder? Simply put, there’s just no machine like BeamCut. A 6-axis robotic CNC cell that uses high definition plasma technology to cut metal profiles for every structural steel shape and metal type in the industry.
