Machine Description

Thanks to the precut method of punching and shearing, along with no tooling changeover between stud and track and the higest production speed in the industry, the Supermill provides the best ROI of any steel framing roll form system.

In an effort to illustrate the profit opportunity available to you by choosing the B&K Supermill System compared to the competition, we have generated the following comparision.  This information illustrates that the Supermill can produce more unique products per shift and more volume, based on speed and efficiency of changeover.

Supermill’s patented gauge adjust system lets you change from making 25 gauge drywall studs to 12 gauge floor joists in minutes. No manual adjustments needed at all! Web width, leg height, and return all adjust to preset values that you store by part number in operation station.

One set of fixed roll tooling makes all the standard profiles of the Supermill’s entire product range.
There’s never a need to shim or change rolls when changing between products.

Inexperienced operators easily set up and run perfect parts. Enter web, leg and return dimensions on the touchscreen and Supermill automatically adjusts to the correct settings.
