The German engineers at Schechtl have a 100-year history of building the most popular sheet metal folders in the world. The Schechtl MAB and MAX lead the industry today in production speed, versatility and operator ease of use. The backbone is the heavy-duty solid steel folding beam. The MAX features bending capacities from 20 to 11 gauge, with a backgauge accuracy of +/- .004”, and a backgauge driven by two massive 1.25” Dual Drive Ball Screws and twin 1.5” Thompson rails. The groundbreaking iFold touch screen interface allows 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. The small geometry of the tooling, clamping jaws and folding beam make it much easier to produce a wider variety of profiles at the highest speeds in the industry. The Explorer function allows the operator to organize and store custom parts in addition to a massive industry standard parts library. Add MetalForming‘s industry-leading 3-year parts warranty to MAX’s legendary bending strength and you have a very strong and reliable hardware foundation.
