The purpose of profile machine MINI-PROF is to produce double standing seam profiles 25 from blanks or cut lengths in a single pass. It is designed as a universal machine for the entry-level users or as a backup machine for onsite work.
The profiling unit (tie-bars) with 7 shaping levels are supplied on a torsion-proof steel frame. The strip or sheet material is guided by lateral infeed guides on ball-bearings on the fixed as well as the adjustable side. These are adjustable to set the outer edges of the profile. The profile rollers are made of high quality special steel and surface treated. This special treatment provides the rollers with a high level of corrosion and wear protection. The bearings of the upper profile rollers are have resilient mounts to allow them to adapt to the material thickness. This ensures that impression-free and low-wear production of the panels. The machine is equipped with two plug-in carrying handles and is movable. The working height of the machine is adjustable from 670 to 870mm. For this purpose the two footrests and the castors may be extended and locked in place. The machine can also be moved by a crane using the eye-bolts that are supplied as well.
The infeed width is continuously variable from 230mm to 850mm to cater for a wide range of applications. The axial dimension of the profiled panels that are produced by a parallel run of the MINI-PROF ranges from 160mm to 780mm, taking into account a seam loss of about 70mm. A single sided run can produce conical, oblique panels or infill strips from a centre to centre distance of 50mm. The length of the shortest panel is approx. 500mm. The production rate is 11 meters per minute.
After adjusting the infeed guides to match the width of the cut the profile shaping drive is turned on via the main switch and the cuttings or panels are then fed manually into profiler while the drive runs. When you have completed the work, turn the machine off. The infeed guides can be folded down to transport the machine.
