This new, high speed Pittsburgh machine is not just a “beefed up” version of a floor model machine, according to officials from this Michigan company. It has the same construction as the company’s 16 ga. heavy duty unit and this rugged construction allows it to run at 100 fpm. An optional short parts feeder allows operators to produce fittings as fast as the rest of the ductwork. Just clamp the fitting blank onto the feeder (6-in. minimum length) and feed the piece into the machine.
