When end forming for the aerospace, tank, or HVAC industries, the KAAST ZSH and ZSM series beading machines outshine the competition with consistent, accurate beads which supply strength and connectivity to materials up to 0.15" (4 mm) in thickness. These workshop and site friendly beading machines are available with mechanically (ZSM) or hydraulically (ZSH) driven upper rolls and are available in two models, 2.5 or 4.0. The 2.5 model can handle up to 13 Ga material and work at up to 16 rpms. It features a 3.75" roll opening and 6.3" throat. The 4.0 model beads up to 9 Ga material at 12 rpms and offers a 5" roll opening and 7.8" throat.
These beading machines come standard with 4 sets of dies for rolling the most common beads in the fabrication industry. Eight other standard die sets are available as well as custom dies, expanding the abilities of beading machines even further.
The twin foot pedal control pedestal offers easy to use controls and a generous 8’ connection. The heavy machine base is robust, minimizing distorting vibrations while maximizing stability during operations.
We absolutely love our new roll bender! We had been using the same roll bender for over 40 years and were well over due for an upgrade, and that is exactly what we purchased and then some! The KAAST PBH 120 has allowed us to roll material in house that we would have normally had sub contracted out. And because we went with the larger machine we are rolling our material at least 20% faster and with better consistency as well. Our rings and arches have never been tighter! Thank you again for a quality piece of machinery!

“Your machines are good, solid machines. We’re happy.”
“We needed a press with the pressure pad on the bottom, and this one came with a 30 ton press on the bottom along with the main 77 ton press. We’ve used it pretty heavily, about 10-12 hours a day, and it’s run well with no issues.”
“Smart machine. Doing well.”
“So far we’ve had zero issues and haven’t needed any service. These presses were very competitively priced.”
