Welcome to The BASE (Bending And Slitting Engine) – a completely automated unit for fully integrated production of sheet metal profiles and molding. The ultimate all-in-one-solution for manufacturing industries with high production flow.

Through combining the best standard machines on the market into a single unit and then adding the revolutionary nuIT control system, production is increased to levels you have never seen before.

The unit can be equipped with up to 6 haspels each with a capacity of 2–7 tonne. The haspels are designed and constructed to give the gentlest possible release and transfer to the Forstner PSM cut-to-length, that slits and cuts the sheet to the required shape. The cutting mechanism can be programmed, making it possible to send cutting optimized instructions, from the software directly to PSM, for maximum utilization of material and minimal waste. The cut parts are fed onwards to the double folder ThalmannTD that automatically folds the now cut and shaped pieces according to the desired profiles. The BASE also takes care of marking with profile data and individual notes such as packing. Using nuIT the production unit can be easily integrated with your other processes for Lean production, efficient control and administration.

The BASE is operated by a single operator, from coil changeover to packing finished pieces. Automate your manufacturing in one single step. The wholly automated production unit is now a reality.
