The unique Kombi beam is a fabricated structural prism on which is mounted tooling to firmly clamp a broad range of materials and withstand the forces generated by capacity forming operations. Machined into the Kombi beam 180? from each other are the attachment surfaces for the straight and box and pan tooling. Tools are attached to the Kombi beam with standard socket head cap screws and grooves are provided to secure the tools even while the clamping bars are loosened for adjustment. Rotation of the Kombi beam is powered by a brake motor driving a sprocket and roller chain mechanism.
The Autobrake 1212K provides accuracy and repeatability when forming 12 gauge mild steel and 16 gauge stainless steel. It features the rotating Kombi beam, which expands the machine’s folding capabilities to produce straight to box and pan bending in just 11 seconds. The box tooling is 6.3″ in height, precision ground and laser hardened to 60. Pieces are also laser etched with the length of the tool for easy box set up.
The AB1014K Autobrake from Roper Whitney provides precision and repeatability when forming up to 10 feet of 14 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 unique Kombi box tooling adds to the machine’s straight and box folding capabilities to produce more complex shapes in less time. Various tooling options are provided to help customize to your specific needs, and can be provided in steel or hardened. It handles a wide range of materials, easily closes hems and withstands the force generated by maximum capacity.
The 12′ foot backgauge extension can be added to any 61″ backgauge and will extend your total gauging out to 144″. This feature can be added at any time and can be retrofitted to machines that are already in the field. The backgage extension can be mounted on either the right or left side but needs to be specified when it is ordered.
