SAF, a global metals distributor, fabricator and finisher, continues to add new machinery to facilities across its organization with new, state-of-the-art column cover rollers at SAF West in Redding, Calif. The rollers presently at the Redding plant are being relocated to SAF’s newest location in Temple, Texas, allowing for first-class column cover fabrication from the organization in more regions across the United States.
The double pinch hydraulic 4-roll 16-foot plate bending machine – MG Model M 5006 B-RR – allows SAF to create longer and taller column covers up to 16 feet in length and in a range of circumferences. The MG roller offers easy operation due to its ability to pinch the plate between two central rolls, pre-bending the leading edge, and then rolling the metal material along with the trailing edge all in one direction and in one pass.
“We have a strategic goal to replicate manufacturing expertise, capabilities, and the very best service levels at all of our branches nationwide,” said Penn McClatchey, CEO at SAF. “Machinery investments contribute to a balanced workload across our organization and help us more promptly meet customer demand in every region we serve.”
