Southern Aluminum Finishing (SAF), a global metals distributor, fabricator and finisher, recently invested in a new double bending machine, which it says will help increase fabrication capabilities and speed of service for customers. The Jorns JDB-200 is a fully automatic, double beam architectural metal forming machine specializing in bending complex metal profiles. The machine will operate at SAF’s Villa Rica, Ga., location.
“The JDB-200 facilitates the fabrication of complex decorative profiles, trims and flashings, which are all essential to get to our customers in a prompt fashion so that they can complete their projects on time,” says Frank Buchholz, general manager at SAF’s Villa Rica fabrication facility. “These are profiles that we had been producing, but the JDB-200 makes us much more efficient and dramatically shortens lead times so that we can get products out the door and into customers’ hands.”
