Van Mark at Metalcon 2018


With only a week away from Metalcon 2018, (October 10-12 - Booth #1429) in Charlotte NC. We would like to talk about the tools that would be seen at our booth.

Over 50 plus years of manufacturing job-site metal forming equipment. Find solutions for onsite bending, slitting and perforating needs for metal roofing with tools that are Manufactured AND assembled in the USA. Van Mark has produced portable job-site benders, brakes, slitters, perforating machines and panel cutting tables, designed specifically for the metal roofing and metal building industries since 1964.

Our tools have been known for over 50 years as the best quality in their class and we continually strive to make them better. We want our tools to be trouble free and have a minimal amount of maintenance required of them. Van Mark tools cost slightly more than our competitors but the low cost of ownership over the life of the tool far exceeds any short- term savings in the purchase price of other tools.

We are introducing our latest brake this year. The New Industrial Metal Master® 20 EZ-Go. We have re-engineered our LockMaster™ castings to be lighter yet stronger, with innovative design using solid modeling technology. This improvement gives the brake increased bending capacities and a longer life.  The Industrial Metal Master® 20 EZ-Go portable job-site brake with 20” throat depth, designed for onsite use, offers easier bending and hemming on up to 24 gauge painted steel.   Also our Multi Gauge™ tool for your Mark 1, Trim Master or Metal Master® brakes. This tool assists in determining the proper bending angles and also functions as a cutoff gauge when using our TrimCutter™ rolling shear.

Also on display this year is the 24” Trim-A-Slitter™ Perforation Package Model SCI24HD and our Trim-A-Gutter™. The Trim-A-Slitter™ is specially designed to slit, rib-form and perforate 24 gauge painted steel for all of your job-site needs. The Trim-A-Gutter™, gutter hood forming tool, allows job-site manufacture of gutter leaf protection from aluminum trim or gutter coil. The low cost per foot to form your own gutter hood makes this a very profitable tool.

Van Mark has been producing the highest quality bending, slitting, cutting and forming tools since 1964. Our tools are manufactured AND assembled in the USA. While others may manufacture the core components offshore and assemble in the USA Van Mark produces our tools domestically. Help support the US Economy by supporting Van Mark.
