Eckold Kraftformer KF 800

Introducing the latest in Eckold innovation, the all-new Eckold Kraftformer KF 800. The KF 800 is Eckolds most versatile Kraftformer yet. With an unmatched throat depth of 31.5” (800 mm) the KF 800 offers new possibilities and even greater flexibility when forming large sheet metal parts at a very affordable price.


The Eckold Kraftformer KF 800 is air powered and controlled by a foot pedal, and you can easily switch between single stroke and continuous stroke operation. The single stroke mode combined with the machines massive reach is extremely beneficial for correction jobs. The machine has 2 different stroke settings depending on your forming force requirements.

A digital display shows the machines ram position with 0.1 mm precision which results in accurate repeatability of the forming force. The KF 800’s adjustable height allows for an ergonomic working position for the operator. The Eckold Kraftformer KF 800 uses the same tooling as Eckolds popular KF 170 PD allowing for easy tool changes within seconds. The range of tools covers shrinking, stretching (both steel and non-marring synthetic inserts), doming and planishing operations. Like the other Kraftformer models, the all-new KF 800 is durable, versatile and precisely engineered with every detail in mind.
