FOLDING MACHINES

Our Autobrake Folding machines integrate advanced design with special features that have made them the prime choice for all professionals. These folding machines combine an automated bending of angles up to 145 degrees, material clamping, and the material support into a single CNC controlled system providing wing bending techniques.

Benefits of Autobrake systems:

  • Reduced labor costs
  • Improved part accuracy
  • Minimized tool changes
  • Reduced setup time
  • Improved part quality; especially on pre-painted and soft material

Roper Whitney Series

AB1016 Folding Machine

Features:

Integrated sheet support and material positioning
  • Work pieces are supported fully by the back gauge table below the clamping jaw, and positioned automatically to an accuracy of +/- .004".
  • Back gauge is positioned by using a ball screw which is driven by a servo motor for a low noise operation.
  • The servo motor recovers from back gauge displacements automatically as high as .625 inches.
  • Conveniently spaced nine fingers give positive contact with edge of sheet and the fingers travel down to 0.0 inch.
  • Operation of the pop-up back gauge fingers is pneumatically controlled.
  • The back gauge has the capacity of supporting sheets up to 700lb.
  • The standard back-gauge depth is 40” with optional 61” and 122” depths
Automatic Dual Clamping System

CNC controlled programmable clamping and hemming pressures requires no tool to create open, closed, or tear drop hems.

ECS 904 CNC Control System

The ECS 904 system is efficient and increases the skills of sheet-metal fabricator by giving the way to transfer the operator's information quickly into useful part programs.

The software is Windows-based and is combined with a powerful machine controller, specially designed for the Autobrake. This system provides a high powered stable solution for all types of folding needs.
