Since its inception in 1989, FORMAX® has not only stood the test of time but along the way has actively undergone continuous improvement. Formax machines built today are vastly improved from those fi rst machines. Utilizing customer feedback, National Machinery engineers have made countless upgrades and enhancements. Virtually all major components have been improved—from feed, to transfer, to heading slide. The number one rule along the way has been this: every design change must be retrofittable. That means that whatever the vintage of your FORMAX, there is an opportunity waiting to bring it to today’s standard.
