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 tooling allows 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.

The PX24 light duty bending brake is for light forming requirements (up to 16 gauge mild steel). When used within their rated capacity, they will form a minimum 1/2″ flange over their entire length. Maximum Rated Capacity: 16 gauge mild steel. The PX24 Box and Pan Brakes adjustable back gauge are ideal for small, precise box and pan work (up to 3″ deep). It will accommodate sheet metal up to 16 gauge. The PX24 will bend as much as a 135? angle in up to a 24-inch length. Standard fingers provided include one each 3/4″, 1″, 1 1/4″, 1 1/2″, 3″, 4 1/2″, and 6″. Fingers are heat-treated die steel, precision ground. Set of fingers can be arranged to form 3/4: to 24″ in 1/4″ increments. Back gauge adjustment is from 0-24″. Adjustable friction brake lock stops upper bar dead-weight drop and permits precise positioning of upper bar to scribed line on work piece before final clamping. The pan brakes have optional special fingers to adapt them to inside mitered lip boxes, 9″ long square tubes and radius bends up to 1″. The floor mount stand shown must be ordered as a separate item. Minimum 1/4″ (PX24) reverse bends are possible with these light duty brakes by removing both the apron angle iron work support and apron filler plate and reducing the capacity by four gauges.
