Turning Vane & Rail System
The Vanemate system from ECO is a patented innovation that has been proven stronger than any other vane and rail system currently available, and Reduces turning vane assembly labor by as much as 50%.
The key to the system is in the patented snaplock design. Buttons punched in the ends of the vanes when they are cut 'snap' into slots in our specially designed rail.
Buttons in the vanes can be formed by using the Vanemate cutter, available in 2" or 4" models, which simultaneously shears the vane to length while punching the button in each end. If a shear type vanemaker is being used, a simple modification to the shear blade will automatically punch the button holes.
ECO rail is specially designed to accept the buttons in the vanes, to create a very strong connection. Another unique design feature is that the rail nests together for easy storage, and the insert tabs are pre-formed at 90°, so less time is spent preparing the rail for final assembly.
The vane/rail sections can either be pushed together manually, or by using the Vanemate assembler. No peening, chiseling, or welding is required; the system is locked together!
