Piranha Ironworker Model P-65

The P-65 Piranha Ironworker unique automatic urethane hold downs eliminate time spent on adjustments during shear cuts, they also effectively keep flat stock and sheet metal from distorting during operation. Faster cycle times and less distortion mean value added benefits. These standard features save metal fabricators time and money, bringing value to every fab shop.

MegaFab P-65 Single Operator Ironworker

Piranha Model P-65 Ironworker is the metal fabrication industry’s most popular model of ironworker. With more standard workstations than any other ironworker in its class, the P-65 excels at punching, bending, bar shear, angle shear, and round bar shear. The integrated coper/notcher station allows fabrication operators to clean notches, make burr-free cuts, and remove the full leg from angle iron.  Piranha’s ergonomic design allows for a clear line of sight, combined with the low rake angle makes notching and coping an easy process. The P-65 also has a dovetail slide that allows an operator to switch from punching to bending in just a few seconds. The P-65 has more horsepower per ton and the fastest punching stroke in the industry. Fabtech Solutions carries a large assortment of optional tooling to enhance the P-65 Ironworker, as well as all Piranha’s ironworkers.
