The All-New 1010K Autobrake

The all-new AB1010K Autobrake from Roper Whitney provides precision and repeatability when forming up to 10 feet of 10 gauge mild steel or lighter materials. This sheet metal brake is a high speed solution to make a variety of bends while maintaining a high quality level in the end product. The backgauge provides accurate part location through the use of servo drives and is expandable with optional backgauge extensions. The rigid design includes optional automatic crowning adjustments to ensure accurate bending regardless of raw material stresses.

Changing The Shape Of Metal

A Company Transformed.

Since 1910, Roper Whitney has been producing high-quality tools and sheet metal fabrication equipment that change the shape of sheet metal, literally, from a simple punch to folding shapes with complex geometries. Over the decades, Roper Whitney has become a household name in sheet metal forming shops, most notably with American-made AutoBrake® sheet metal brakes as well as brands like Pexto® and Connecticut®.

With the release of powered long folders, Roper Whitney has one of the most comprehensive product line-ups for bending, folding, forming, notching, punching and shearing  – designed to streamline the sheet metal fabrication process.

Sheet metal brakes are powered by the SYNERGY control system that manages all  machine motions with an intuitive interface and real-time bending sequences. SYNERGY also provides easy management of projects and product drawings.
