The machines in the JET® 2012 metalforming lineup are capable of creating innovative product designs, applying precision metalforming techniques, and providing over-and-above customer service, the company said. The full range of fabrication equipment includes shears, brakes, slip rolls, English wheel, arbor presses, shop presses, notchers, rotary machines, and planishing hammer. Model 756203, a 52-inch pneumatic shear, features pneumatic controls that make shearing a one-man job, and the low cutting angle makes it easy to cut narrow strips without twisting, said the company. The pneumatic shear’s cast iron frame eliminates blade deflection, and its precise bed and beam alignment ensures cutting accuracy. Maximum cutting capacity is 16 gauge for mild steel and 12-14 gauge for aluminum and copper alloys. The 50-inch electrical power slip roll, Model 756027, can accommodate HVAC and fabrication shops with different types of electrical service. The three-roll machine has two driven rolls, and all rolls are constructed of hardened, polished high-carbon steel. A heavy-duty frame and base, plus welded cabinet, ensure precise rolling of mild steel sheet up to 16 gauge and 50 inches wide. The floor box and pan brake with foot clamp — available in 40 inches (Model 752125) and 50 inches (Model 752127) — has a hydraulic spring to assist in raising the clamping handle. Fingers are black-ceramic-coated to prevent rust and ensure long life. The welded-steel-plate body sections with heavy truss rods and braces are built for the long haul in busy shop environments.
