Schroeder sheet metal working specialists will design special machines to improve the efficiency of your individual production processes upon request. Our semi- and fully automated Bending Centers are built on high-performance swivel folding machines. They develop individual sheet metal working solutions based on Schroeder technology, hardware, and software, ranging from customised machines to various stages of automation and extending to fully automated production lines that run 24 hours a day. Schroeder bending centres are built around their cutting-edge Evolution-Series folding machines. In normal operation conditions with manual product placement, these machines are already fast and extremely efficient. Their power can be amplified in the centre of an automated solution. These machines are ideal for continuous use because they are extremely robust and require very little maintenance.
Once programmed, these folding machines can be operated with minimal effort. The operator only needs to load a sheet and position it against a support, without having to fully or partially support it. Automatic feeding systems are also available.
Requires Minimal Tooling
Practically all folding angles and radius can be achieved with a single tool geometry, including a number of crushed folds.
Setup times are very quick. This allows you to produce smaller batches of parts just in time, increasing efficiency and reducing inventory.
This type of folding offers high precision and excellent repeatability. Furthermore, this method results in very minimal marking on the parts.
