FRAMECAD F325iT-L: More options for walls, joists, trusses, mods & pods


FRAMECAD is excited to announce the release of the updated F325iT-L manufacturing system.

Driven by our commitment to continued innovation, and to help meet the growing needs of our customers and the requirements of the cold formed steel (CSF) construction market, our design engineers have reviewed and refined the F325iT-L, providing significantly increased design and manufacturing flexibility, unique to FRAMECAD.

Based on the industry-leading standard set by the F325iT (with 12 tooling stations), the upgraded F325iT-L delivers up to eight additional tooling options. This increased functionality provides up to 20 (12+8) advanced precision punching functions for the highest productivity and manufacturing versatility of roof trusses, walls, floor joists, mods and pods.

Watch the FRAMECAD F325iT-L product video:

The F325iT-L produces profiles from 2.5" - 6" (63mm - 150mm), in steel up to 24 - 18 gauge (0.55mm - 1.2mm) thickness, for unrivaled production speed and accuracy.

Ideal for the construction of walls, floors and roofs for 1-3 level residential, modular and transportable units, and light commercial construction, FRAMECAD's F325iT-L manufacturing system can be either factory-based or transportable in a mobile factory.

Additional product features:

  • High line speed up to 9,950ft./hr (2880m/hr) results in the industry’s best framing and truss manufacturing output

  • An auto gauging system that automatically adjusts gauge range to increase overall productivity for steel thickness from 0.55 -1.2mm or 24 - 18 gauge steel

  • Includes hot climate hydraulic cooling system for high temperature operating environments

  • Smart internet connectivity provides cloud-based data reporting to enable real-time production management and technical diagnostics to improve efficiency.
