P1 Group can now manufacture standard lengths of duct at a fraction of the time in the Lawrence, Kansas, fabrication shop.

The recently acquired equipment is called an Iowa Precision Coil Line. P1 Group “adopted” the previously owned machinery from a contractor in Boston.
The equipment was shipped in pieces on four semis and installed by P1 Millwrights.

According to Operations Manager Chris Champagne, the equipment is a huge time saver.

“Before we had the machine it would take approximately 15 minutes to produce one piece of duct. With the coil line we can manufacture pieces at a rate of 30 seconds per piece.”

The machine is equipped with the following:

  • Six 5’ wide decoilers x 10,000# bead /notch /tie-rod hole punch shear
  • Male and female Duplex rollformer w/ 16ga & 18ga. pittsburgh & male pittsburgh rolls
  • Drive cleat rollformer'TDC duplex rollformer
  • Insulation w/ upgraded extruded glue system & Duro Dyne pinspotter
  • Wrap brake
