Introducing The Tab Over Feature

Swenson Shear is here to help streamline your process for making a tab. Out in the field, roofing experts are utilizing the SnapTable to finish off the tab over for residential and commercial metal roofing projects. The SnapTable, in conjunction with the tab over, helps create a clean, closed aesthetic look at the end of the roof slope. If you don’t own one of our specialty metal cutting machines, now is the time to invest.

Tab Over Step 1: Notching Station

To start, set your angle and offset your notchers by one additional inch – this allows room to snip back when creating the tab. For example, for a 16” mitered offset angle, set your notchers at a 17” offset. Notch the panel, then remove the metal coupon from each notching station.

Tab Over Step 2: Slitting Station

Rotate the slitter to set your angle between notches. Slit the panel and grab a pair of tin snips to notch the female rib back to your 16” mitered offset. Create the tab, clean up the excess material and move panel to station three.

Tab Over Part 3: Hemming Station

Secure both sides of the standing seam by making sure the panel hits flush against the fencing inside the hemmer. Clamp down and hem over to complete your hem.

Just three painless steps and the tab over feature is done!

The Best Metal Hemming Tool On The Market

Swenson Shear is proud to announce the only hemming tool on the market that allows for the perfect valley hem, even up to 60” long. With effortless technology for one person to manually power, customers no longer need to struggle with folding tools that only allow up to 24” hems. It is no longer necessary to hem panels larger than 24” in multiple stages.

Swenson’s unique hemming tool allows for angles up to 60” long, eliminating an uneven crown and guarantees a consistent hem from rib to rib. Our tool makes hemming eave and valley cuts effortless! The SnapTable HD and Pro hemming tool eliminates the complications of metal panel preparation –saving time and money on the jobsite, while improving efficiency.

“It was nice to have a perfect valley hem longer than our 24” folding tools,” says Zack Kilwein of Residential Roofing LLC in Montana. “Not having to use our wuku bender was a huge plus.”

Be sure and check out our How to Hem video.

Introducing the Towable Option!

Introducing the new Towable Option! The Towable Option meets the Department of Transportation standards and is $4,000. Additionally the towable option is powder coated, with a two-inch ball hitch, weighing approximately 1,800 pounds with the SnapTable Pro and 1,600 pounds with the SnapTable HD. The torsion axle is designed to with stand rigorous conditions and ease job-site transportation. Another plus? It comes with additional storage space!
