Schechtl MAB

Where manual bending machines reach their limits, the MAB provides a huge increase in functionality and efficiency. Schechtl folders are the most popular architectural folders in the world. This folder offers very high bending capacity while keeping energy costs low. It comes in two different models 10 feet of 14 gauge and a full 13 feet of 16 gauge. The power and speed of the frequency inverter-controlled machine elements make model MAB a “work horse” among bending machines. Work more professionally by producing entire profiles in an operation and repeat the process with precision at any time. The MAB design has a much stiffer beam, which allows minimum deflection. The small folding beam allows operator to stand still rather than stepping in and out from the folding beam while forming.  Bearings and guides are maintenance free. The MAB has manually adjustable crowning to maintain bending precision for a range of material strength and thickness.

The iFold touch screen interface allowing you to literally drag and draw parts in real time, creating the actual dimensions as you go. It tells you when to flip, rotate and move the part to finish it. Decrease production prep time and folding errors with iFold technology. Also use the J-Bend app for mobile programming to save you time back at the shop. The iFold program Explorer function allows the operator to organize and store parts in an endless number of ways: part number, job name, project name or number, etc. Not to mention the massive core parts library filled with industry standard parts. Besides linking to the mobile app, the control can network to your office computers, multiple machines or with MetalForming, LLC. for remote support. 

Click on box and pan tooling system is an additional feature that can make the MAB even more versatile. The support rail for click systems is only available for new machines though goat feet can be ordered at any time. The click on style uses only your hands to attach tools, no need for pneumatic clamping or hand tools. 

Includes an industry leading 3 year parts and 1 year labor warranty. With the legendary reliability of Schechtl and largest technical staff of MetalForming you’re getting a machine that’s backed by industry experts.
