Fast, Accurate Hemming in a Compact Tabletop Unit
Nissan has been using tabletop hemming machines since 1999, making it an industry forerunner in this technology. Today these units are in use at many Nissan manufacturing sites in Japan and elsewhere around the world.
Tabletop hemming is a highly adaptable process. It can be used in a variety of cases where conventional hemming equipment is less suitable, such as for high-mix, low-volume production, for crafting specialized forms, or in sites where space is limited.
Through long years of development and refinement, Nissan has achieved highly durable, reliable and safe hemming machines. Together with Yanagita IW Corp., Nissan has codeveloped and commercialized products using this technology. These solutions have been on the market since 2007.
- More compact than other hemming equipment
