Beading and Crimping Machines

Machine Information

The forming machines included in this section offer a broad variety of shapes and capabilities in forming sheet metal for a combination of uses: beading, crimping, setting down, double seaming, turning, burring, wiring, elbow edging, flanging, and flattening. All are precise in the job they do and are readily adaptable to job requirements. The roll chart is indicative of their flexibility. Most are portable and may be set up at the job with a clamp-on base.

Beading Machine
No. 0617
The No. 0617 beading machine is a deep throat 13″ capacity design that is shipped with standard spacing collars and gauges for all operations except flanging. Rolls are ordered separately from the list here. It will form metal up to 18 gauge.

Crimping/Beading Machines
No. 0581, 0585

These machines include Ogee bead and crimping rolls to provide one pass combined crimping and beading. They are adjustable for deep or shallow beading and for “fade-away” crimping.

A number of rolls may be ordered separately from the Roll Chart to use with this machine.
