The Base

Welcome to The BASE (Bending And Slitting Engine) – The first fully automated and highly flexible production line of its kind worldwide. From coil to the finished metal trim in one linked process chain.

It assembles a smart combination of the best standard machines on the market. In combination with the nuIT software, it can increase a metal shops efficiency in a never seen way.

  • nuIT MASTER INTEGRATION SYSTEM
  • FORSTNER COIL PROCESSING
  • CIDAN HANDLING SYSTEM
  • THALMANN TD DOUBLE FOLDER

The BASE can be delivered in 6 or 8 meters length. The sheets can be 100 mm to 1000 mm in width for up to 1.0 mm steel.

Ordered profiles within the nuIT software create production data which will be sent directly to the machines. The BASE itself consists of a Forstner PSM (programmable slitting machine) with variation from one to six available decoilers (from two to seven tons each). It’s cutting mechanism is programmable and makes it possible to send cutting optimized jobs from the software directly to the PSM. Moreover, a portal system transports the cut parts one by one to the Thalmann TD double folder which automatically folds the profiles based on bending programs sent by nuIT.

Operating the machine only takes one person. On top of that, the required space is low and the production line can also be run in a semi- automated way.
