Is the FlexBeam Right for My Shop?

  • Do you drill or mill holes in a variety of steel profiles such as I-beams?
  • Are you looking for a faster and cheaper way to do it?
  • Do you currently have to layout hole positions and then produce the holes with a mag drill, punch, or plasma?
  • Are you interested in a machine that can drill, mill, and scribe/engrave?

  • Are you struggling to land steel fabricating jobs in your market?
