Applications

Howick FRAMA machines customized for many applications

The Howick rollforming machine is a dedicated frame manufacturing tool that completely fabricates light gauge steel framing from coil steel using CAD output to produce physical framing product ready to assemble. Our FRAMA machines eliminate the traditional manual labor-intensive method of frame assembly and completely processes and labels every frame component ready for assembly. Howick FRAMA machines are capable of producing walls, floors and trusses to provide a total steel building solution.

Steel Building

The building of steel homes is made simpler and faster using the Howick steel building machinery. Steel frame homes can be designed, manufactured and panels pre-assembled in a factory so that onsite work is minimal. By automating the production of steel frame buildings, the total build can be refined into a much more efficient process.

Applying modern technology is making modern steel frame houses more efficient to build and more affordable than traditional building methods.

Steel Construction

Modern steel construction is made easy with the Howick steel framing machinery. Multi-story buildings have been constructed up to 11 storys high using framing from the Howick machines.

Integrating steel floor cassettes into the overall steel frame construction or the Speedfloor concrete flooring system allows modern light and strong buildings to be constructed to the highest building standards.

Pre-Engineered Buildings

Combining Howick machinery with modern design software allows pre-engineered steel buildings to be constructed. Combining Howick's steel joist with the framing allows prefab steel buildings to be manufactured off site and transported as complete units. This modern approach to automated prefabricated steel buildings allows higher productivity and efficiency.

Light Steel Framing

The Howick light steel framing machine completely fabricates light gauge steel framing allowing a new manufacturer to immediately become productive in the light steel frame industry.

Each wall component is individually processed and labeled to fit into the frame assembly, needing nothing more than the screw or rivet fasteners. Every single notch, cut and hole is automatically generated by the design software and pre-processed into the framing to minimize on site work.
