Convertible Series™

FRAMA™ 7800

MULTI-PURPOSE SYSTEM: HEAVY-DUTY FRAMES, PANELS, JOISTS (12 GAUGE / 2.5MM) 6-14” / 150-350MM SECTIONS

The Howick FRAMA 7800 ™ is a fully functioned, convertible profile frame and floor joist component manufacturing machine, with the option to produce up to 5 set profile widths to cover a range of construction applications.

FRAMA 7800 ™ benefits

The FRAMA 7800 ™ is available in 3 configurations for floor joist production, framing production or as a customized set of frame and joist tooling. It is convertible up to 5 framing sizes.

With the unique design of the FRAMA 7800 ™ machine, you can produce a single profile size and add additional tooling sets for remaining profile options as/or when needed, without the cost and complication of a multiple profile rollformer.

Howick's convertible machine design overcomes many of the compromises that go with making multiple sections with adjustable tooling. The compact design of FRAMA 7800 ™ means less material wastage when changing section width and higher product accuracy. Convertible design ethos means you can add tooling for additional widths as required. If your production requirements increase, you can buy another base unit and use your existing tooling to run multiple lines at once. 

The machine operation is taken from Howick's proven reliable design concepts to minimize down time and maximize production.
