Ras Systems LLC introduced its new XL-Center at the International Roofing Expo Feb. 16-18 in Las Vegas. Taking the lead from the XXL-Center, the company says this new machine is designed for roofing and architectural profiles. Representatives also claim the new machine is much more affordable than the XXL-Center, but has the same folding features - up and down bends - and is equipped with a programmable tapering feature. The machine has a 124-inch-long bending length and the maximum material thickness is 16-gauge mild steel. The up and down folding feature is able to reduce material handling. It requires no flips, turns or rotations for the fabrication. The machine is also complete with a new graphic PC control.
