The Schechtl MAX is the single most popular selling folder in North America. But that was not good enough for the engineers at Schechtl. We are proud to introduce the MAX-F and MAX-I! Everything you have always loved about the MAX, reengineered to bend faster, hem better, and increase flexibility. The legendary strength of the MAX has been improved with redesigned clamping, bottom, and folding beams. The clamping and bottom beams are stiffer for superior hemming and more clearance between the gauge table and the clamping beam. The folding beam, driven by the new electric direct-drive system is more efficient, with faster bending speeds and better bending consistency. Couple this with the newly designed dual servo-drive gauge system for lightning-fast gauging, and you have a machine unrivaled by anything in the industry.
The reimagined clamping beam geometry with more free space under the clamping beam totaling 2.4” increases folding flexibility and larger profiles. It also uses the experience of the powerful 14 gauge MAB clamping beam structure for better hemming results. The legendary strength of the MAX is also improved with better frame stiffness throughout. The new welded machine side frames have a modern, sleek design with the latest safety features incorporated in the electrical cabinet. The new bed height is taller and more ergonomic to decrease operators bending over to insert material. New electric direct drive motor makes the MAX FASTER with less wear on components compared to the legacy chain and sprocket machine. Get more from your folder with these new features.
All the latest and greatest features of the MAX-I plus new F-Geometry – first of its kind in a short folding machine. At the front of the machine, an extra .55” of space behind pivot provides more folding flexibility and decreases the need to push against deeper profile geometries during folding. Bending hat channels, corrugations, vented ridges, pitch correct drip edges and bigger J's was never easier. The F-Geometry creates more free space taking the already versatile MAX to a whole new level.
