The NEW PowerBend Professional is the next generation to the incredibly successful PowerBend series of thin gauge sheet metal folders. Thanks to the superior drive technology, advanced electronic controls, CNC crowning, and segmented tooling options, the PowerBend Professional possesses the robustness, reliability and accuracy to handle complex geometries and difficult bending requirements with ease. At the same time the PowerBend Professional offers the flexibility your company needs to produce short runs and prototypes. With the hydraulic tool clamping device and the optional rotating clamping beam, set up times can be drastically reduced. The result is a considerable increase in productivity, and a significant reduction in labor.

The NEW EVO Heavy Duty from Schroeder is the only folder of its kind. The newest addition to Schroeders wide range of industrial folders can fold up to 5/8″ mild steel and 1/2″ stainless to a 10′ bending length. Able to form any thickness of material from max capacity down to shim stock, the versatility of this model is unmatched. Available with a variety of different gauging systems ranging from standard gauging rails to a gripping gauge system that grips and automatically feeds the part through the bending process. Standard features include quick release hydraulic upper beam tool clamping, CNC crowning, automatic material adjustment and radius control, 19.68″ of clamping beam stroke, and an impressive 240 tons of clamping pressure. The POS2000 Sheet Metal Designer control system sets new standards for industrial folding machines. This proven control makes programing a folding machine fast and convenient. The 2D graphics display exactly what the machine and part are doing, stepping the operator through the entire bending process. The folding machine, work piece, and tools automatically sequence through the bending process as the machine folds the part.

The highly automated EVO-CENTER with ATC gives you complete control over your bending needs. A single set of 15-3/4” tools that are automatically changed drastically reduces setup times while increasing the flexibility and part potential. Eliminate part flipping, part whip, and multiple operators with bi-directional folding and ergonomic automation. Since material variance has virtually no impact on part accuracies, you get parts with superior quality, and automated operation removes operator influence over part quality, and output.

The robust design of the PowerBend Industrial folds ¼” mild steel at 10’ lengths, and 0.196” mild steel at 13-1/2’ lengths. The standard 650 mm (25.6”) of stroke and open supports a maximum tool height of 300 mm (11.8”) creating a huge part envelope. Vacuum grip and feed gauging systems, CNC crowning, dual monitors, and tool positioning lights are just a few of the standard features on this revolutionary advancement in machine design. Bigger, stronger, and more capable in every way but still a perfect blend of performance and price point.

Thanks to the segmented tooling options on all beams, superior drive technology and advanced electronic controls the PowerBend Professional possesses the robustness, reliability and accuracy to handle complex geometries and difficult bending requirements with ease. At the same time the PowerBend Professional offers the flexibility your company needs for the production of short runs and prototypes. With the hydraulic tool clamping device and the optional rotating clamping beam, set up times can be drastically reduced. The result is a considerable increase in productivity.
