Ascent-3SA CNC Channel Letters Bending Machine

  • Making returns for new style channel letters without trim; epoxy filled letters, reverse/halo letters, plastic returns and traditional trim cap letters with the lowest labor cost in the industry.
  • Letters can be produced using our non-proprietary Ascent extrusion/profiles that are UL certified for indoor and outdoor
  • Processes flat aluminum, stainless steel, galvanized steel, brass and copper
  • Easy changeover of material types is software driven.

Ascent-3SA bending machine

We introduced our third-generation bending machine, by far the best one on the market. The system provides perfect channel letter returns that are easily assembled with our unique assembly method making the Ascent-3SA the most affordable, most versatile channel letter manufacturing system on the market.

You can make reverse/halo lit letters without welding: less labor, better quality, increased production, lower cost.

The easiest way to make letters without trim.

The machine can process coils aluminum up to 8” height 0.63” thickness, stainless steel 0.040”, galvanized steel, brass, copper and flexible plastic.

The machine also process Ascent non-proprietary aluminum extrusion (1”,2”,3” and 4”)

The major different between the Ascent Channel Letter System and the competition is as follows:
  • Ascent-3SA comes fully programmable and is calibrated with all the materials adding future new material is extremely easy.
  • The extrusion/profiles are non-proprietary and can be purchased from Ascent in at very competitive prices or in large quantities, you can purchase directly from the manufacturer.
  • Extrusion is preprinted epoxy white that can be used without repainting or as an excellent primer for different colors.
  • The Ascent extrusion system is certified by UL for indoor and outdoor use for letters up to 66" (the competition only up to 48")
  • Ascent equipment is the only system that can make letters in height from 3."
  • Machine operation and final assembly of channel letters can easily be done by relatively low skilled operators after three hours of training.
  • Ascent includes installation, start-up, and complete training on the equipment with every machine.
  • The Ascent Ascent-3SA equipment utilizes different separate knife and cutter heads for aluminum and stainless steel (software-driven) producing more accurate letters.
  • The Ascent equipment uses electrical power and compressed air and not oil pump making for a cleaner, more efficient operation.
  • Critical components of the machines are made in Japan for superior reliability.
  • The Ascent-3SA machine can produce side plastic returns.

Each machine comes with a supply of 1”, 2” and 3” aluminum extrusion (designed for letter without trim and reverse/halo), 4” aluminum extrusion for traditional trim channel letters And pneumatic stainless steel nail tool for final assembly of the letters

Ascent Equipment provides the industry’s most technologically advanced hi-tech machinery for manufacturing channel letters at the lowest cost.
