No, that¿s not the start of a joke. It was the situation facing the Iowa Precision engineers last year assigned to install a complete 60-in. Iowa Precision Fabriduct coil line at a small, 3,000-sq. ft. sheet metal shop located about a half-hour from Washington, D.C.
The Fabriduct system uses a modular design with 11 integrated, flexible workstations. Its design is ideal for smaller shops. It produces commercial or residential duct with formed connections, including Pittsburgh seams, snap lock, TDC, slip and drive seams and joints. It also processes flat sheets, four-piece duct as well as duct in L, U and wrap-around sections. It can create a section of wrap-around, insulated duct averaging one joint every 15 seconds.
