Fasti folding machine

formed and laser cut plate
RDM of Minnesota adds a new dimension of sheet metal forming capability... two German engineered and manufactured, Fasti C.N.C. Folding Machines. These machines incorporate a 7-axis CNC controller and 200 tons of clamping force to produce the highest degree of parallelism and angularity throughout the length of the part.

The Fasti Machine's folding capacity is 10mm (3/8") x 4200mm (165") of grade 50, carbon steel. It is possible to form 1/2" plate and 3/4" plate in very limited capacity. RDM offers this precision C.N.C. controlled forming technology to exceed the limitations of press-brakes, and with special tooling, form deep channels up to a foot deep by one-half foot wide. Companies such as John Deere have utilized the Fasti Folding Machine to reach ultimate consistency in quality for tough manual/robotic welding applications.
