Streamline the Duct Design to Assembly Workflow with Manifolding

For MEP Contractors, the latest trend in HVAC duct fabrication leverages CAD to CAM with current duct fabrication machinery features. Combining these features streamlines the manufacturing lifecycle of fabrication through installation.


  1. Inline plasma cutting for taps, dampers and access holes eliminates time consuming, offline processes
  2. Save time by manifolding in shop to decrease installation time at the jobsite
  3. Utilize new hardware hanging options to further reduce installation time on site.
  4. Leverage the CAD to CAM workflow streamline fabrication time.
