Model MAX

Model MAX is a motor driven metal bending machine with a capacity of max. 1,5 mm (related to 3100 mm working length). Model MAX stands for power, speed, operating comfort and flexibility. The speed of the bending beam with 80°/sec and the opening of the upper beam with 50 mm/sec are impressing. The upper beam opens while the bending beam moves down so the part can to be positioned for the next step simultaneously. The combination of the SCHECHTL CNC Touch Control, the motor-operated back gauge and the movable foot switch provides a bending system for "one-man-operation" even for sheets up to 3100 mm.

The work sheet is led through upper- and under beam and clamped perpendicular with the controlled closing of the upper beam. So the piece doesn't slide forwards being clamped and the accuracy is preserved. The upper beam clamping pressure can be adjusted on each side of the machine separately. The upper beam can be opened to approx. 140 mm.


Model MAX metal folding machine comes standard with a sharp rail 20° and a profile rail 20°, R = 2 mm for the upper beam and one of each insert rail 68/10 and 68/24 for the bending beam. All bending rails are exchangeable. The bending beam may be adjusted to different sheet thicknesses and radius' within seconds

Model MAB

Model MAB is a motor driven metal folding machine with a capacity of max. 2,0 mm (related to 3100 mm working length). The power and speed of the frequency inverter controlled machine elements make model MAB a "work horse" among bending / folding machines. Its massive design provides a maximum flexibility both from thin materials to sheet thicknesses up to 3 mm aluminium. Nevertheless its machine elements, e.g. the bending beam, are very compact and provide maximum safely in front of the machine.

With MAB/CNC version with SCHECHTL CNC Touch Control and a motor driven back gauge bending sheets of 3mm is a one-man job!

The work sheet is led through upper and lower beam and clamped with the controlled upper beam. So the piece doesn't slide forwards being clamped and the accuracy is preserved. The upper beam clamping pressure can be adjusted on each side of the machine separately. The upper beam can be opened to approx. 140 mm.

Model MAB folding machine comes standard with a sharp edged rail 20° and a profile rail 20°, r = 2 mm for the upper beam and one of each insert rail 68/10 and 68/24 for the bending beam. All bending rails are exchangeable.

The bending beam can be adjusted to different sheet thicknesses within a second.

Model MAE

Click here to view Video of MAE 310 with segmented quick change Goats Foot tooling

Model MAE is a motor driven bending / folding machine with a capacity of max. 3,0 mm (related to 3100 mm working length). The upper beam is driven by spindels. In conbination with our patented goats foot tooling, model MAE is the perfect machine for industrial application.

The work sheet is led through upper- and under beam and clamped with upper beam. So the piece doesn't slide forwards being clamped and the accuracy is preserved. The upper beam can be opened to approx. 210 mm.

Model MAE metal folding machine is also available with segmented goats foot tooling with the new Click System (see accessories) to bend boxes and pans.

Changing from standard tools to goats foot tooling is very easy and a one-man job using our standard tool change device
