FASTI 225 Series Hydrolic Folder
If you are an OEM or job shop with requirements demanding thin plate applications, meet the brother of the massive FASTI 216, the FASTI 225 system for thin plate applications.
Offering the same array of outstanding features, the FASTI 225 thin plate hydraulic folding system is the undisputed middleweight in the metal folding industry. And, like its heavyweight brother, with a multitude of special options to ease the pain of forming plate even further, the 225 series is designed like no other metal fabricating machine out there. FASTI takes thin plate metal folding where no one else dares! Take a look:
CNC FRONT GAUGING
Forming parts with tapers or hard to gauge flanges is one many shops struggle with, on a wide array of blank materials. Add the ergonomic issues caused by thin plate, and you can face some forming challenges.
FASTI developed our unique CNC front gauging system specifically for applications where the advantages of folding were too significant to pass up; and that resulted in a phenomenal six (6) axis CNC control: X1, X2, Z1, Z2, R1 and R2 that quickly positions each to within thousands of an inch of your required bend.
The CNC front gauge, used in conjunction with the FASTI backgauge, means there is nothing that cannot be gauged and formed on the FASTI 216! Especially thin plate applications.
RUGGED GAUGING SYSTEMS
Gauging is one of the key elements contributing to quality output, especially in thin plate applications. Weak, flimsy gauging can bring a machine to its knees. FASTI has designed the finest, most rugged gauging in the industry, with twin ball-screw drives, steel or nylon ball transfers, solid gauging rails, pop-up stops, and many other options that guarantee consistent, accurate parts.
Four standard shapes are available, with depths starting at 1000 mm (39”) and options up to 6 m (19’). We even provide feed systems, which automatically feed the material through the forming operation.
And if you want something you don’t see here, let us know. With our ability to custom-design machines for application specific jobs, we can provide almost any gauge, to fit almost any application.
MASSIVE OPEN HEIGHTS
How would you like to swing a huge 'U' shaped part up around the beam with no assistance? Or, form a 50" deep four sided box?
Because of the unique design characteristics of the 225, we are able to provide open and stroke dimensions of up to 100".
The 225’s clamping beam, like the thick plate 216, is a dual, glass-scale, proportionally driven hydraulic ram system, which delivers tremendous force with unbelievable finesse and precision, also rivaling the best CNC press brakes available.
And, the 225 can be custom tailored to suit virtually any thin plate application.
So, if folding fits, then we can fit it into a FASTI.
Thin plate applications are very demanding on tooling design. Try folding a piece of thin plate steel, and you will quickly understand the challenges you face if your tooling is not up to the task. Because FASTI has become recognized as a world leader in solutions for forming plate, our tooling and clamping systems are world-class. Our hydraulic tool-clamp system has over 45 tons of clamping force; our bottom beam tools lock into position, and our folding beam tools securely grasp and form your parts to unparalleled accuracy.
With dozens of standard shapes to choose from, and custom designs our specialty, send us your prints; if we can't build a tool for it, it can't be formed on a folder. Period.
When it comes to forming thin plate or any other thickness of part material, FASTI’s expertise and market leadership have anticipated your every need. That is why we offer three unique CNC systems from which to select, depending on your specific operation and your needs:
The simple to use, CFP120 is a breeze to program and offers a very friendly interface.
The Cybelec 1200 gives operators an engineer’s view at forming requirements, providing 2D graphics and an enormous amount of programming power and data.
The POS2000 is a dream machine, with touch-screen interface, and the easiest 2D programming on the market.
With FASTI, the control, and choice, is yours.
