The SBS Series mechanical sheet metal folder incorporates a twin motor drive system for the folding beam. This allows the system to be fast and extremely accurate. Bending speeds up to 90 degrees per second are easily achieved. Another advantage to this system is maintenance. Unlike with a chain drive system, there are no adjustments needed to this system.

For maximum hemming capacity, another strong feature of the Tennsmith SBS Series, Metal Folding Machine, is the center drive of the clamping system. The placement of the motor in the center of the machine maximizes power while reducing torque loss through the drive shaft. The benefit is a hemming capacity of 20GA for the SBS12614.

The back gauge for the SBS Series features a twin ball screw design. The system is fast and extremely accurate. All three drive systems of the SBS Series: Folding beam, Clamping Beam and Back gauge are controlled by frequency inverters, giving the machine great accuracy.

Another noticeable feature of the SBS Series is the large 17-inch graphical touch screen display. The larger screen allows easy viewing of the touch screen program.

SBS control features:

  • Graphical Programming of Profiles
  • Hemming Macros for Open, Closed, and Teardrop hems
  • Radius Macro for Complex bending of different Radii (Cornice Work etc.)
  • Parts Counter
  • Automatic Blank Calculation
  • Bend Compensation for different material spring back and bending bar set-up
  • Material Handling Instructions
  • The brains behind the touch screen are cutting edge. Designed for harsh environments, the SBS control system will work with ease in any climate. The system features flash memory for both the PLC and PC. This means if anything should happen to your system you can be up and running the next day without the need of onsite programming of replacement parts. All machine information is stored on the Flash drives. The design utilizes the latest technology.

    The key to the SBS metal folder machine design is serviceability. One of the main thoughts that went into designing the SBS Series – Metal Folding Machine was service. Every design element and feature had to easily be maintained and serviced. We feel so strongly about our design that the SBS Series carries a Three-Year Factory Warranty.
