Improve operational efficiencies and cold formed steel precision with the technologically advanced roll forming equipment from FRAMECAD. Designed and manufactured in New Zealand; FRAMECAD's roll forming equipment integrates innovative engineering, design and production software to produce frames, trusses and joists that are ready to be assembled with ease.
The world's most efficient design and manufacturing technology for cold formed steel, FRAMECAD equipment utilises a specialised servo-drive motor combined with a world-leading encoder system, creating punches, cuts and chamfers with less than 0.01mm tolerance.
The FRAMECAD system is the intelligent solution for organisations desiring to deliver large scale production and projects. It uses FRAMECAD® patented technology to give a smart lean design, engineering and fabrication process.
With Internet connectivity and the online access to FRAMECAD business support tools; FRAMECAD roll forming equipment provides cloud-based data reporting to enable real time production management and technical diagnostics to improve efficiency and accuracy.
The rapid, modern steel frame construction offered by FRAMECAD helps local and central governments construct quality, economical institutional buildings for their communities. Leveraging global reach and experience, FRAMECAD works directly with these agencies and with developers and contractors.
Remove the inaccuracies and material waste of traditional CFS stud & track framing and timber systems. Implementing the FRAMECAD system saves time on site and allows precise installation of internal partitioning, apartment and commercial office walls. Engineered to achieve code compliant fire and acoustic ratings, the FRAMECAD system is easy to specify and install.
CFS construction allows developers to meet tight timelines without compromising on quality and allows fast construction of Mid-Rise buildings including; apartments, commercial office buildings, hotels, aged care facilities and more.
Modular construction refers to taking factory-produced pre-engineered building units and delivering them to site. They’re then assembled as large elements of a building, the light weight nature of CFS makes modular units to be transported and installed on site in a fast and cost-saving manner.
For multi-level buildings, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that timber, concrete, and hot-rolled steel aren’t always the best options – especially when it comes to the top floor. That’s why so many developers are now looking for ways to save on time, labour, and costs during the construction process.
All 422 load-bearing wall panels for levels three through seven of this 7-story (five levels on two levels of podium) project was fabricated at Douglass Colony's headquarters in Commerce City using FRAMECAD and shipped directly to the jobsite where the building was erected in a total of 40 working days, including all wall panels, flooring systems, and detailing with concrete poured and cured.
Dynamic Steel Frame hold the honour of having constructed the largest light-gauge steel (LGS) three storey apartment building in Australia using the FRAMECAD System. Located in the inner-western suburb of Yarraville, Melbourne, this three-level residential building illustrates how LGS is changing today’s approach to construction
In the US, the framing industry is changing rapidly. Concrete contractors are becoming a rarity and timber continues to offer challenges due to inferior material and a lack of availability. These days, US construction companies are turning more and more to cold-formed steel (CFS), and FRAMECAD partner Intellisteel is revolutionizing how these steel framed structures are built.
