The big brother to them all, the FRAMA™ 7800, like our FRAMA™ 6800, is a specialist floor joist fabrication system. This one comes with the additional benefit of convertible profile sizes.

It allows you to manufacture joists with sections from 150 to 300mm (6” to 12”). It is also convertible for up to 5 floor joist profile widths offering a gauge range of 1.85 to 2.5mm (16 to 13 gauge). It outputs an impressive 750m or 2,460’ per hour (maximum speed).

With the unique convertible design ethos of the FRAMA™ 7800 machine, you can produce a single joist profile size and add additional tooling sets for alternative profiles as/or when needed, without the cost and complication of a multiple profile roll-former. If your production requirements increase, simply buy another base unit and use your existing tooling to run multiple profile sizes from the one machine.

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 widths, and higher product accuracy.

The machine operation is taken from Howick's proven reliable design concepts to minimise downtime and maximise production.
