Revolutionize your Shop with Conical Bending

Become the expert in conical bending! Did you know some of the older Schechtl machines can be upgraded to include conical bending? The Schechtl back gauge for conical bending simplifies the production of numerous sheet metal profiles. Pluggable profiles and flashings can now be produced accurately and efficiently. Time-consuming processing steps on the construction site are eliminated. The back gauge is thus ideal for applications where edge lines are required that do not run parallel. For example, for gutters, eaves plates and covers.

Say goodbye to the hassle of producing various sheet metal profiles as pluggable profiles and flashings can now be crafted with precision and efficiency. By eliminating time-consuming steps on-site, it's a great solution for applications that require non-parallel edge lines. Think gutters, eaves plates, and covers – all made easier with conical bending. The conical back gauge is available for the following motorized swivel bending machines with CNC control: MAXMAX-FMABMAFMAZ, & MAE.

Do it today. MetalForming’s free installation and training offer is good for new Schechtl purchases between May 1, 2024 and June 30, 2024.  Contact your MetalForming sales person for details. Don't forget, MetalForming is North America’s exclusive distributor of Schechtl machines. We offer Preventive Maintenance Contracts, and we gladly accept trade-ins.
