Roper Whitney’s Magnabend offers performance characteristics no conventional bending brake can match. Its unique electromagnetic keeper clamping system eliminates typical interference points common of other machines and allows you to form several complex shapes not previously possible. In addition, the Magnabend can handle all regular shapes in light ferrous and non-ferrous sheet metal (up to 4′ wide, 18 ga.) in a simpler, less time consuming and efficient manner.
The rugged simple construction incorporates only one moving part assuring low maintenance and versatility for all of your light duty forming requirements. The included fingers allow for a wide variety of complex shapes to be created right out of the box including rolled edges up 330°, partial length bends, closed shapes, unlimited box depths and heavier material bends (up to 10 ga.) in shorter widths.
Roper Whitney’s Magnabend is the only one of its kind manufactured in the USA.

Electromagnetic Design – The Magnabend is designed to eliminate the hindrance of an upper beam with the introduction of an elongated electromagnet and keeper system.
Self-Locating – A simple and effective method of locating the full length keeper is achieved by spring-loaded steel locator balls.
Back Gauge – Production efficiency in repeat bends is provided by adjustable back gauge.
Triple Hinge System – Three hinges allow Magnabend to have a lighter bending beam without limiting durability and reliability.
Bend-Angle Gauge – Convenient bend angle gauge features adjustable stop for precise, efficient repeat bends.
Safety Features – The safety button engages a light magnetic force on the keeper. As well as a safety device, this force is a convenient way to stabilize the work piece for precise measurement before you activate full clamping power.
