Chances are that when you’ve heard cold-formed steel (CFS) construction methods described, that cost savings have been heavily emphasised as a major advantage.

What you might not be so aware of is just where these cost savings lie and how a considerable amount of these savings can be found above and beyond simply the cost of the CFS framing alone.

The major CFS cost savings are cleverly explained in an infographic designed by BuildSteel.org, one of the pre-eminent CFS knowledge bases in North America.

Top 4 reasons to choose quality fasteners in Cold Formed Steel (CFS) Construction

Posted by FRAMECAD Team on Dec 4, 2017 3:28:06 PM

Here are the top four reasons why choosing low cost screws for CFS production can cost your business in other ways.

1.    Ultimate Strength
Fastener failures are costly, premium fasteners are not.

Wire stock – Consistent quality is key.
Wire stock quality is a key ingredient in the performance of fasteners, fastener manufacturers should perform regular checks on wire they receive and ideally every coil should be tested, all FRAMECAD fasteners are from individually tested coils with full traceability to the originating coil.

El nuevo desbobinador de doble cabezal FRAMECAD reduce el tiempo de cambio de la bobina drásticamente.

Posted by FRAMECAD Team on Dec 1, 2017 3:00:00 AM

FRAMECAD le ofrece una solución adicional para aumentar su productividad con su nuevo desbobinador de doble cabezal.

El desbobinador de doble cabezal FRAMECAD le permitirá tener una bobina de acero de respaldo cargada en el desbobinador, lo cual reduce drásticamente el cambio en el tiempo de las bobinas, ya que hay una precargada, por lo que se disminuye la inactividad entre las bobinas y se hace eficiente el tiempo de producción.
