Automatic Hanger Machine

The Craft Cobra Automatic Hanger Machine (AHM) applies reliable coil fed technology that makes fitting hangers to both picture and photo frame backs simple, fast, and accurate. Because of its unique design, the AHM can start increasing your productivity almost immediately. With a safety interlock foot operated trip mechanism, easy to set hanger positioning and an estimated operator productivity of up to 40 hangers per minute, using either the single head (AHM-01) or double head (AHM-02) is a dream. And, with a very easy loading coil fed system, plus the famous Craft low maintenance design, down time will be kept to a minimum.

The hangers use rosettes to grip the backing materials. These are formed during the pre-application process insuring sharpness and preventing scratching and damage to coiled hangers. All hangers are applied in the ‘bent open’ position making the end product easier to use.

The AHM can accommodate a wide range of backing materials from .040 inches (1mm) to .25 inches (6 mm), in sizes from 5” x 7” (13 x 18 cm) to 24” x 36” (61 x 92 cm). There is also an optional guide that will extend the size range to 50” x 50” (127 x 127 cm).

Craft’s AHM joins our ever-growing extensive line of equipment designed to efficiently assist every frame manufacturer in all levels of hardware application.
