Ideal entry level automation

The canvas stretching machine MHP SB StretchBasic is the efficient and easy solution for your entry into automated canvas stretching. This is a cost-effective, plug-and-play machine that processes the most common formats.

The semi-automatic MHP SB works in a two-stage process, stretching two opposite sides at a time on the backside of the frame. Fast processing of several frames simultaneously in the second-stage for greater yields!

The MHP SB offers you high flexibility for shorter runs with frequent format changes. Consistent quality and drum-tight stretch – step into automation with an MHP SB!

We recommend the MHP PLUG to complement your production line for artist canvas products. For digital printers, the MHP VPLUG is the ideal extension to assemble v-nailed frames.
