Chester Magnetic Bending Machines

Please contact us for prices and availability

The fundamental principle of the magnetic bending machine is that it uses electromagnetic clamp rather than a mechanical clamping system.  The machine consists of a long electromagnet with a steel clamp bar located above it.  The sheet metal is clamped between the two by an electromagnet capable of clamping with a force range between 3-10tons.  rotating the bending beam then forms the bend as the sheet is bent around the front edge of the clamping bar.  there are 4 different types of clamping bar used to form different folds.
