X168 Infinity

The PinnacleFRAMER X168 (9 Gauge, 4mm Sheet Metal) System is a fully automatic multiple web and flange size production system for C, U, Sigma & Z shape profiles. The application of the system is extremely extensive and comprehensive, it is a professional fabricator’s choice not only for multiple size wall, column, beam frame profiles, but also for large span industrial and commercial integrated structure applications. It is designed for professional steel framing manufacturing operations for heavy gauge cold formed steel CFS residential and commercial structures. It is capable of producing wall profiles and floor joists for framing all CFS structured buildings from 1 to 12 stories, warehouse structure beyond 30 meters (100 feet) span, column and beam open space office structures up to 6 floors.

The PinnacleFRAMER X168 System integrates the intelligence of the PinnacleCAD structure calculation software, PinnacleCAD 3D modeling & detailing software, production and PinnacleCAD machine control software to achieve a truly integrated and totally automated design to production system. This framing system engineers, designs and produces wall frames, floor truss, and roof trusses complying to all major international light steel framing building codes: America, British, Euro, Canadian and Australian. Equipped with Pinnacle’s patented roll forming technology, and also Pinnacle’s patented PinnacleTRUSS application system, this totally integrated design to production system delivers high productivity, top quality and 100% accurate output. It’s the industry’s most innovative and competitive fully automatic Multiple-Profile-Production-System of the same category!
