The big brother to them all, the FRAMA™ 7800 is truly multi-purpose. It allows you to manufacture frames, trusses, panels or floor joists – with sections from 150 to 300mm (6” to 12”). With all the benefits outlined above for the FRAMA™ 7600, (this one is also convertible for up to 5 profile widths) it is available in 3 different configurations: for floor joist production; framing production; or customised with frame and joist tooling. 

The system offers a gauge range of 1.85 to 2.5mm (16 to 13 gauge) and outputs up to 750m or 2,460’ per hour.

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 roll-former.

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.
