LFS Series Takes TENNSMITH's Reputation To New Lengths-Up To 40 Feet.

June 16, 2011
McMinnville, TN-TENNSMITH, Inc., a leading sheet metal equipment manufacturer, has announced its longest automatic folder ever, with the release of the LFS Series. The LFS folder meets the needs of those in construction, roofing, metal buildings and others who need the ability to create complex profiles in even longer lengths.

Users can now quickly and easily create profiles of folded metal up to 40 feet with mild steel, stainless and aluminum. Capable of as many as 100 folds per program, the Long Folder is ideal for builders, metal part fabricators, roofing companies and others who create complex profiles and need the flexibility and throughput of a long folding system.

TENNSMITH offers the LFS series as a complement to the series of automatic folders known as the SBS and MTS models, thus allowing for much greater lengths.

The TENNSMITH Long Folder Series employs a highly reliable 10 h.p. hydraulic motor system for the folding beam. Because of this, it delivers the speed and precision you need, making the system fast and accurate. For example, the 90-degree fold speed is just 5 seconds and there is a maximum fold angle of 135 degrees. Among the many sophisticated features the LFS includes energy-saving hydraulics, auto radius function, replaceable clamp tip inserts, plus, international standard safety features including laser finger detection.

Ideally, the LFS folder will be paired with our compatible Slitter that quickly cuts and trims rolled material into sheets of the exact length of the operator's specifications. The slitter can also be used to prepare sheets for other TENNSMITH automatic folders as well.

The LFS Folder is made with simplicity, intelligence and ease-of-use as primary considerations. It is controlled via a user-friendly touch screen and Windows®-based operating environment. It has been designed to enable even novice users to be able to quickly get up to speed, creating complex profiles in little or no time.
