Dual Head Cleat Former

In brief Ductformer’s Model CR8-CF-DH Dual Head Cleat Former forms the Drive Cleat Flange on both ends of the Duct in a single pass-through operation. The System overall can be incorporated into any existing Duct Fabrication System to produce 4’ and 5’ L-Shape or Full Wrapper Duct.  It is shipped from St. Louis, MO.


As can be seen the quality and integrity of all our standard Rollformers, the System features an all gear drive, direct oil bath gear reduction, and sealed (lube for life) bearings to provide the smoothest, quietest Rollformer on the market to date. In summary, the unit consist of two (2) Rollform Head Assemblies mounted parallel side-by-side and positioned from Handwheel Leadscrews. The Roll Tooling will form the 180° Drive Cleat hems on both edges of the pre-notched sheet metal. Hence while the pre-cut Duct passes through the Cleat Edge Former, the System senses the notch to form the Cleat Edges for L-shape and Full Wrapper Duct.

For Systems using combination TDFC and “S” Slip and Drive Cleat operations, the Rollformer features By-Pass Conveyors. As can be seen by using the Handwheels provided, the Form Rolls open wider and the part can be by-passed or transferred through the By-Pass Conveyor then to the next form sequence.


You will notice the quality of the CR8-CF Dual Head Cleat Edge Former as soon as you turn the power on. The quietness while running reveals the precision workmanship and superior design to provide years of dependable service. Just like all Ductformer products, everything is, above all, American Made at our plant in St. Louis, Missouri. Moreover, we back up everything we sell with the quality and service you deserve.
