ACF Cornerformer Cost & Time Savings

THE REAL COST SAVINGS
THE MAJOR BENEFITS OF A PROVEN SYSTEM

IMPROVED QUALITY OF CORNERS

  • excellent and consistent quality

TIME SAVINGS

  • simplified panel/door production process
  • reduction of manipulation and intermediate storage

COST SAVINGS

  • no welding, no hand finishing work
  • only 1 operator required
  • elimination of abrasives and welding consumables
  • new UNIVERSAL-TOOLING allows individual panel/door fabrication (MACHINE-TYPE: Multiflex)
  • custom made FIX-TOOLINGS design allows high volume fabrication (MACHINE-TYPE: Variform)
  • space requirement for machine approx. 1 m2

IMPROVED WORKING CONDITIONS

  • very low level of noise, no dirt creation

FLEXIBLE AND AUTOMATIC CORNERFORMING GIVES EXTENSIVE COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGES FOR PANEL/DOOR FABRICATION IN:

  1. IMPROVED QUALITY OF CORNERS
  2. SIMPLIFICATION OF FABRICATION PROCESS
  3. ADDITIONAL BENEFITS ARE
    • MILD STEEL - zinc coating: AFTER CORNERFORMING
      => no manual zinc coating in the corner area is necessary
    • MILD STEEL - for enamel coating: AFTER CORNERFORMING
      => the coldformed corner is constant and resistant against high temperature (higher than 960oC)
    • STAINLESS STEEL: AFTER CORNERFORMING => no change of color on the material surface and therefore no pickling of the corner is necessary

THE TIME SAVINGS
IT'S WORTH MAKING THE COMPARISON

A panel/door with all 4 corners formed, ist compared with a welded and handfinished panel:

PROCESSRATE COMPARISON

  1. CORNERFORMER-Multiflex, MF25/50/100 appr. 52 sec./Door
  2. CORNERFORMER-Variform, appr. 40 sec./Door
  3. Conventional Method (welding, grinding, finishing) - Mild Steel, appr. 12 min./Door
  4. Conventional Method (welding, grinding, finishing) - Aluminium, appr. 18 min./Door
  5. Conventional Method (welding, grinding, finishing) - Stainless Steel, appr. 24 min./Door

Please note: Above times stated INCLUDE handling time (BOTTOM-BOTTOM TIME).
Additional time savings through optimization of fabrication are not considered.
