Traditional steel framed drywall systems are built with light gauge stud and track profiles, which are supplied in lengths and cut to size on site. The assembler has to measure and place each piece accurately to ensure the wall is straight and the window and door openings are square true. This generates a lot of waste, as well as being time consuming.
Howick’s framing machines remove the waste and inaccuracies from building steel framed walls. Our system includes a FRAMA 3200 framing machine which produces wall panels in 0.55mm-0.95mm or 0.95-1.15mm steel. The FRAMA 3200 produces framing components in a fully finished state ready to assemble, including inkjet marking and recessed screw holes using Howick’s easy to use panel design software.
On site the bundles are opened and assembled. With the aid of the drawing and the ink jet labelled parts.
New technoligies are changing construciton sites. The traditional site measure and build can now be optomised for design and installation timelines significantly reduce through the use of 3D scanning to give an accurate model of the structure allowing th eframing to be designed to fit exactally. This allows bundled frame packages to be sent to site or to be run onsite using our FRAMA custom trailer soultion.
