By applying Thalmann Double Folder Technology, sheet-metal part handling can be completely omitted or reduced to an absolute minimum. Two folding beams are used to fold the sheet metal in two directions, fully automatically, efficiently, fast and with high precision. With the innovative Dynamic Folding Technology, the folding speed and thus production output are increased considerably. Driven by the globally unique kinetic Control Shaft Technology – a mechanical controller which synchronizes the clamping and folding beam – the TD model delivers the highest precision and parallelism, even in complex parts. The Modular Tool Geometry ensures decisively more flexibility and folding space, the sophisticated Gripper System guarantees a precise positioning of the sheet-metal parts even at a high operating speed and the Interconnected Control Technology can be operated easily and intuitively – thus enabling reliable and economical handling.

Forstner Coil Processing
The haspel line is demand-driven and process the right material in the right order, at the speed and the precision you want. Just start up the program and the sheet metal is fed in, straightened, measured and cut to the correct dimensions ready for the next step. A portal system transports the cut parts one by one to the ThalmannTD double folder which automatically folds the profiles based on bending programs sent by nuIT.

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 BASE 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 the 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.
