ELECTRO-MAGNETIC SHEET METAL BENDING MACHINE is a new concept in sheetmetal forming which gives you much more freedom to make the shapes you want. The machine is very different from ordinary folders because it clamps the workpiece with a powerful electro-magnet rather than by mechanical means. This leads to numerous advantages.



Recommended for:

HVAC shops, industrial art shops, and general sheet metal fabrication shops. Making enclosed boxes, triangles, alternate bends on varying planes, and round items such as scrolling applications.
