FRAMA™ 3200

FRAMES, TRUSSES, PANELS (18 GAUGE / 1.2MM)

The Howick FRAMA 3200 ™ is a fully functioned, dedicated frame and truss component manufacturing machine. Frames are produced from material up to 1.2mm in thickness, ideal for both residential and commercial applications.

FRAMA 3200™ Benefits

The FRAMA 3200 ™ features Howick’s unique end-bearing stud detail for the production of load bearing frames. The Howick swage and dimple design allows for smooth joints and consequently, the wall lining sits flush against the framing. Remote access for fault finding is available for internet connected machines.

The new generation FRAMA 3200 ™ brings exciting new benefits, such as faster processing and motion control for improved throughput, high speed hydraulics for smoother production on intensive components including lattice joists, resulting in higher production rates. Improved cooling systems with internal inline fan cooling design and optional oil cooler. Easier servicing and maintenance from redesigned tooling mountings.
