Strut framing channel, is used in construction for installation of electrical, utilities and air handling duct, to name a few, and is used as a common solution for general industrial framing needs. Due to the versatility of applications and uses, there are a range of strut sizes, material thickness, hole patterns and profile features that may be required. Over the years Yoder has developed a robust machine and tooling package for producing strut framing channel, that supports regional manufacturers as well as the high production OEM producers. The combination strut tooling design that Yoder has perfected, enables customers to have a single installation that covers the entire product range with only partial tooling set changeover when switching products. This tooling design helps customers to produce channel in smaller production quantities, with faster changeover and less setup scrap, so they do not need to maintain large inventories of odd strut sizes incase of an order.
Strut Framing Channel & Cable Tray
With the latest development in strut roll forming design, Yoder now offers a tooling package that enables producers to run stainless steel strut and profiles up to 3-1/4” deep at the full line speed capability of their roll forming machinery. With other strut tooling suppliers, their outmoded designs limit the production speed, particularly on these stainless and taller sections, due to material galling and marking. Yoder has solved this with their unique approach to forming the strut cross section.
Similar to the strut roll forming solutions, Yoder has developed several tooling and machinery packages for producing high quality side rail and rung components for fabrication of cable tray, ladder and wire management products. These system may be high speed, inline notching, embossing and stenciling, or for the custom fabricators, cutting or feeding plain blanks for future, offline processing. As the worldwide markets require different levels of automation and inline processing, Yoder roll forming solutions can be tailored to each customer’s needs.
