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.

The All-New D300 Up/Down Folder

The 10 ft. version is the smallest of the Evobend models. Where space is limited, its compact design allows you to work comfortably while other machines reach their limits. The D300 is also a perfect solution for operators who commonly bend smaller profiles.

» Folding Length: 126 in (3200 mm)
» Backgauge Depth: 49 in (1250 mm)
» Number of Legs: 4
» Total Length: 181 in (4600 mm)
» Total Depth: 71 in (1880 mm)
» Total Height: 74 in (1875 mm)
» Max. Capacity Mild Steel: 14 ga (2 mm)
» Max. Capacity Aluminum: 1/8 in (3 mm)
» Max. Capacity Stainless Steel: 18 ga (1.25 mm)

The Evobend’s patented double bending system has been refined in a revolutionary way and enables unmatched bending freedom. The automated up-down folding capabilities allow you to form profiles while eliminating the operator manually flipping or rotating your part, making production faster, more efficient, and cost-effective. The added free space lets you configure complex profiles with more accuracy, while parallel, tapered, and overlapped profiles can be bent simultaneously.

Due to the Evobends innovative design, previously impossible angles are now able to be processed. Up to 300° (150° up, 150° down) of bending freedom is unrivaled anywhere else on the market. This increases your flexibility when folding parts and allows for more demanding profiles to be produced at a lower cost.
