FRAMECAD FL650: Faster & smoother flooring for multi-level buildings

FRAMECAD is excited to announce the release of the updated FL650 system. This heavy-duty, floor joist manufacturing system is ideal for heavy flooring, residential and multi-story construction or large-scale flooring projects.

During an extensive review and redesign process, FRAMECAD’s product engineers have refined many operating features resulting in easier operation and faster production. Additions and upgrades include:

  • 43 - 97mls (1.2 - 2.5mm) or 18 - 12 gauge
  • Multiple flange heights available from 2 - 3”
  • Extruded 6 ½” service hole.

The FL650’s unique punching system offers provisions for easy installation of the HVAC and MEP, along with other electrical and plumbing services, without compromising on joint or profile strength.


Key features and benefits:

  • Automated high line speed up to 4,430ft./hr (1,350m/hr) results in highly efficient deep C floor joist outputs.
  • Specialist tooling for the production of floor joists including an extruded service hole for easy installation of HVAC, plumbing and electrical services.
  • A simple and intuitive gauging system allows for quick change of gauges between 47 - 97 mils (1.2mm - 2.5mm) or 18 - 12 gauge steel.
  • Multiple flange heights (2 - 3”) possible on the one profile, enabling the right profile to be selected based on the engineering requirements for the construction job.
  • Smart internet connectivity provides cloud-based data reporting to enable real-time production management and technical diagnostics to improve efficiency.
