Baileigh Magnetic Sheet Metal Brake
Our Baileigh BB-4816M magnetic sheet metal brake can bend totally enclosed boxes, triangles, alternate bends on varying planes, and round items such as scrolling applications. This bending machine is perfect for bending sheets of mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, coated materials, and heated plastics.
A scaled stroke angle control can be set for repeatable bends. Material is held down by 6 tons of force.
Bend Angle 0 – 180°
- Bend only sheets–no tubes, mesh, rods, wire, etc.
- In general anything the brake can bend will require fairly little force on the bending handles. If lots of force is required, consult a staff person.
