With the creation of the Automax folding machine, we have set ourselves apart from the competition. This new model has the most free space in the industry allowing the operator to create shapes that cannot be created on competitors machines. The extra free space also reduces part handling which is important on long pieces that are difficult to manipulate. The AutoMax is a plate and weldment designed machine, delivering superior performance and features. The curved design of the C frame gives this machine a rigid foundation while reducing stress points seen in competitive makes. The linkages of the AutoMax are located within the C frame structure. This design improves machine rigidity and bending performance. The hydraulic unit is controlled by a high speed frequency inverter. The inverter, controlled by the Synergy Control, provides quick, smooth movement of the machine. The inverter reduces power to the pump when not in use, saving energy costs. The hydraulic manifold is located at the center of the machine, which allows for even flow of hydraulic pressures, giving the machine even operation. The bending leaf is powered by two cylinders and guided by 5 linkage sets. The electrical cabinet is located at the right side of the machine in a quick lock enclosure along with the Synergy control. The curved C Frame design provides superior clamping pressures while eliminating stress points seen on competitive machines. This design allows for much more free space for complicated bends / profiles. The maximum opening height of the AM2116 is 7.87.
