Pro-Fabriduct Processes:
1. Hydraulically driven decoiling with hydraulic hold-down roll
2. Separate path coil selectable feeding 
3. Straightening / flattening
4. Beading
5. Notching for S&D, TDC, or TDF
6. Tie rod hole punching for cross-tie duct bracing
7. Hydraulic dual side rolling of  the drive cleat
8. Hydraulic shearing with built-in brake
9.Snap-lock button punching on male edge
10. Pittsburgh or Snap-lock male side seam forming
11. Edge registration and 1st right angle transfer
12. Single head roll forming of  the female side of the Pittsburgh or Snap-lock seam
13. Edge registration and 2nd right angel transfer
14. Dual side roll forming of TDC or TDF flanges
15. Self-cleaning spray glue application
16. Insulating liner cutting and application 
17. Insulation pinning
18. L-section or full wrap braking

Drop-in Uncoilers
Three  double  drop-in  uncoiler modules with grid auto feed give  you  six  choices of coil  stock  ready for  processing  and automatically selectable
Feed - to - Stop  removes  coil set,beads,punches for cross ties,notches for two piece or wraparound and accurately        cuts blanks
Notching and Cross Tie Punching
As part of the Feed - to - stop, the notching section notches two piece and wraparound blanks as well as punches end and center holes for cross-tie duct bracing

Entry Level/Single Level Conveyor
The conveyor module transfers the material straight for fittings or feeds it 90o to the Duplex
Duplex Rollformer
The  Duplex  Rollformer forms  the Pittsburgh or Snap Lock longitudinal seams
Transfer Table,Cleat Roller and Duplex TDC@ Flange Modules
These   modules   form   industry standard transverse joining methods

Insulmatic,Duro-Dyne or Grip Nail Pinspotter
These   modules  feed  and fasten   the  insulation when insulated duct is programmed
Wrap Brake
The  wrap  brake  forms the duct blank into "L","U" and wraparound duct ready for assembly
Control Module
Iowa  Precision  PC   based  programmable  control stores  hundreds of duct configuration "recipes" for easy  recall  and processing
