The BB-4816M magnetic sheet metal brake is a unique box
and pan brake that has endless bending possibilities when
compared to conventional sheet metal brakes.  Requiring a 
common 220 vold single phase power supply this folding 
machine can ben boces or pans to almost any depth since it
isn't reliant on conventional finger depths.  A poweful
magnet in the bending bed can be engaged by foot pedal or 
push button control to hold down a mild steel clamping bar
of almost any configuration across the bed width or bed 
length.  The sheet metal is pinned between the magnetic mild
steel clamping bar, at this point the bottow bending leaf 
can be lifted to complete the bend.

The mild steel clamping bar can be made of straight bars
(of various widths if you had very tight boxes to make) for
straight bends or segmented clamping bars for box and pan
applications of any other configuration.  Again, because of
the unique design the operator is not limited to the depth
of the item since you are no longer limited by finger

Our BB-4816M magnetic sheet metal brake can bend (items
impossible for traditional box and pan brakes) totally
enclosed boxes, triangles, alternate bends on varying
planes, round items such as scrolling applications, and much
more.  This bending machine is perfect for bending sheets of
mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, coated materials,
heated plastics, and much more.

The bottom leaf's bending extension can be removed for the
tightest bend dimension between bends of 5/8".  A scaled
stroke angle control can be set for repeatable bends time
after time.  This magnetic box and pan brake comes with
product supports and adjustable back gauges for production
runs, as well as a simple to use gap adjustments on the
standard clamping bars for different sheet metal

To initiate a bend on the BB-4816M simply put a piece of
material between the clamping bar to the depth required, hit
the foot pedal control that softly clamps the material (this
is done for operator safety so fingers are safely out of the
machine) allowing for any repositioning, once ready, lifting
the leaf arms engages full magnetic power (6 tons) holding
the material in place as the leaf arm makes the appropriate
bend.One of the biggest advantages of this type of box and
pan brake is that the magnetic power of 6 tons is consistent
across the entire beam allowing for very crisp bends even in
the middle of the machine. 

The BB-4816M magnetic box and pan brake is truly a
breakthrough from the limits of traditional metal brakes. 
It is the perfect folding machine for HVAC shops, industrial
art shops, and general sheet metal fabrication shops.
