Van Mark at the Batimat Expo 2017


We recently attended the Batimat Exposition in Paris France. The expo is held every two years and attendees come from all over the world to see the latest in construction products and techniques.
It is one of the bigger building product expositions in the world.

Some of our European distributors have stands at the show and promote our tools. This year our IM655 2-meter brake was on display at the Gutterfrance booth. Our Industrial Metal Master® 20EZ brakes are used primarily to bend aluminum, zinc and slight gauge steel in the exterior building and remodeling segments all over Europe.

They also exhibited our Trim-A-Table™ model TAT60 in conjunction with Gutterfrance's GMK 600 Couir Panel roll forming machine. Our Trim-A-Table is used to easily cut angles on panels anywhere from 90 degrees to 10 degrees. Gutterfrance was exhibiting the table positioned to cut roofing panels as they exit their new roll former. There was a great amount of interest in these tools.

You can view our photo album of the event here! Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more events and important updates! Hope to see you at the next Batimat Expo!

Product Insight: TrimCutter™

Today, we are going to review one of Van Mark’s most essential and popular brake accessories, the TrimCutter™. When cutting with a utility knife, you potentially run the risk of damaging your brake when cutting material. Using a utility knife leaves a rough burr edge on your material. When bending material on our cam-locking brakes, the TrimCutter™ is a vital tool in cutting the material on the brake or Coil Dispenser™.
What material can the TrimCutter™ cut through? The TrimCutter™ cuts through galvanized steel, copper, zinc, vinyl, and heavy aluminum, basically anything that the brake can bend, the TrimCutter™ can cut. Best of all, the TrimCutter™ leaves a clean burr-free factory edge every time.
How easy is it to cut material with the TrimCutter™? Thanks to the unique 4-point track bearing system, combined with the low-profile grip, the TrimCutter™ gives you great control over cutting and averts the cutter riding off the brake or Coil Dispenser™.
