Featured Product

Dahlstrom Hydraulic Notcher

Dahlstrom can integrate multiple fabricating processes with roll forming systems to create a custom flexible fabrication solution which will streamline and reduce labor in manufacturing operations. Our flexible fabrication solutions provide the ability to run product variations with relatively low effort to convert equipment for these variations. Using a flexible fabrication solution can eliminate multiple handling operations, reducing operator interaction with the product and minimizing costly errors.

With over 70 years in business, Dahlstrom offers the experience and expertise through our engineering and aftermarket teams with support throughout the entire process: before, during, and after the sale, including OEM replacement parts, on-site service assistance, and rebuilds of existing machines for our flexible fabrication solutions.

Applications: livestock tank, furnace wrappers, filter frames, refrigerator cabinets, metal furniture, steel shelving, residential and commercial door and frames, metal building products, office furniture, lighting fixtures

Integrated Systems From Formtek

As a part of the Formtek family of metal forming and fabricating solutions, Dahlstrom systems can be seamlessly integrated with B&K, Hill Engineering, Lockformer Custom Machinery, Tishken, Winpro, and Yoder solutions to deliver optimal results for your operations.

Roll Forming and Flexible Fabrication Systems

Formtek can integrate multiple fabricating processes and systems from B&K, Dahlstrom, Hill Engineering, Lockformer Custom Machinery, Tishken, Winpro, and Yoder to streamline and reduce the labor in your manufacturing operations. Whether it is flexible fabricating or roll formed products, Formtek can engineer and build a complete manufacturing system, from coil or sheet handling through finished product, for your application.

Consolidate Notching and Fastening Operations

The systems can be complex, involving multiple notching, bending and/or roll forming machines with welding, such as the production of office furniture wall partitions. Such systems may eliminate a dozen or more manual operations. Digital controls and batch production capabilities can allow the process to vary position and quantities of engineered features without setup time.

Eliminate Multiple Press Brake Operations

These integrated roll forming and flexible fabrication systems from Formtek can be as simple as manufacturing roof panels or shelves by hand feeding metal sheets into the roll former.

Engineered To Order

Each Formtek System is designed and manufactured to optimize the processing of your products.
