For the competition of the young craftsmen

The Schröder folding machine PowerBend Universal can be seen at the Skills event in a working length of 3200 mm. This machine is able to bend up to 3 mm thick sheets very precisely and without damaging the surface. The POS 2000 Professional graphic control is used to enter the folding programs – an industrial solution that enhances the craft machine just as much as the options used. The exhibition machine is equipped with a motorized folding beam adjustment, hydraulic tool clamping of the clamping beam, motorized central crowning and a motorized back gauge.

PDC NC is a motorized shear with NC positioning gauge for up to 3 mm thick sheets at a working length of 3200 mm. The shear can cut in series at a stroke rate of 34 per minute. The material thickness can be selected on the control, and the blade gap then adjusts automatically. The PDC NC at the Skills competition has a closed sheet support table, support plates with ball rollers and is equipped with extended angle gauges and LED cutting edge illumination.
