Whitefield Roofing needed to make some modern day improvements to a 58-year-old copper roof on a church in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The old roof was 16 ounce copper, batten seam with transverse seams. It was originally done with hand breaks. For the new roof, Whitefield wanted to install 20 ounce copper. They purchased Roper Whitney’s American-made 10M14 mechanical shear. These shears utilize a simple low maintenance design, coupled with an array of standard features that results in high value and solid performance.
They also purchased the Autobrake 1014K. The Autobrake combines automated bending of angles up to 145°, material clamping, and material support into a single CNC controlled system employing wing bending techniques. The equipment provided the perfect amount of precision the company needed to get the job done!
