Roper Whitney - Autobrake 1014


Description: The Autobrake 1014 provides accuracy and repeatability when forming 14 gauge or lighter materials. This sheet metal brake is a high speed solution to make multiple bends while maintaining a high quality level in the end product. Both back gauge options provide accurate part location through the use of servo drives and are expandable with optional back gauge extensions. The rigid design includes crowning adjustments to ensure accurate bending regardless of raw material stresses. Various options of tooling are provided to help customize to your specific needs, and can be provided in tool steel or hardened.

The Synergy control offers high speed versatility to an end user. It offers multiple methods of programming from simple line-by-line to draw-to-auto program. Its network capabilities allow for multiple options, such as; Konnect, Konstruct, Mobile Konstruct, and overall shop management through linking multiple machines. See more information on the Synergy Software by Roper Whitney.

The Autobrake design is a plate and weldment steel construction, delivering superior performance and features in a simplified rigid design. End housings are a plate-type construction bringing drive components close together for improved stiffness and performance. Actuating mechanisms are secured in rigid mounts at the outside of the housings, allowing easy maintenance.

Clamping and hemming capabilities come standard and are already included in the software. Clamping and hemming power is delivered to the clamp jaws by a series of spring washers to provide variable clamping pressures with a shock-absorbing end stop. This provides reliable clamping pressure to create open, tear drop, and closed hems to best suit your needs.

The Autobrake is also available with an optional rotating Kombi beam. This unique tooling assembly adds to the machine's straight and box folding capabilities to produce more complex shapes in less time. It handles a wide range of materials, easily closes hems and withstands the force generated by maximum capacity forming operations.
