The VMAX family
Speed when you need it
The VMAX's unique design lets you buy the performance you need now, with the option to increase production capacity later. The base model VMAX 100 can output approximately 100 "metro" size plates an hour, but with an inexpensive field upgrade, throughput can be increased all the way up to 400 plates an hour; factory models include systems rated at 100, 160, 220, 280, 340 and 400 plates per hour.
For a machine with such power, the VMAX has a small footprint and flexible configuration options that allow it to fit easily into pre-existing plate lines without the need for expensive redesigns of other processing elements such as punch-bend systems.
