ZSH-4.0 Beading Machine
ZSM 2.5

Beading Machines

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.
