The Autobrake comes in a wide variety of lengths and capacities.
Roper Whitney, Rockford, Ill., offers a line of folding machines known as the Autobrake. The Autobrake comes in a wide variety of lengths and capacities, and has been assembled and sold by the company since late 1990. Its height and bending beam size allows easy handling of the work material, reducing operator fatigue. The Autobrake is available with the rotating Kombi® beam, mounting both straight and box tools at the same time, and permitting shapes such as outside corners to be formed in a single handling of the blank. The Orion control, utilizing Windows® within a touch-screen computer, provides expanded flexibility to the operator to draw part profiles that are stored within the computer’s hard drive. Part shapes can be created and altered in any way desired, including hems and radius forms.
