Beam folding machine is a specialist machine created for the folding of long products used primarily in the manufacture of cladding, and roofing products, where its common to require folds in lengths ranging from
4000 mm up to 12000 mm of steel sheets, up to 3 mm in thickness.
Typical products such as single skin profiles, purlings and rail systems, composite panels, twin skin systems
A beam folding machine uses the simple concept of all folding machines,
this being that the sheet material is clamped between the top beam tooling and the lower rotational angle bending beams flat surface, the lower bending beam then is rotated upwards against the clamped material to produce the required bend angle
This simple bending, folding procedure enables working on delicate surfaces without damaging the product, as is the case with thinner steel sheets, between 0.5 to 0.8 mm, or coated and lacquered steel sheets.
beam folders can work with sheet metal sheets up to thicknesses, of 3 mm.

Folding machine suitable for the manufacture of cladding components such as:
Single skin profiles, composite panels, twin skin systems
CNC EliteBender, runs on the latest generation Windows operating system, allowing the EliteBender to be connected to the web for remote assistance directly into Secorema technical department
The EliteBender raises the operating system to a higher level than the standard ‘simple touch’,controller the features of the EliteBender enables the operator to quickly program parts, simple or complex
EliteBender features are
Operator finger protection for the clamping beam & trimmer, plus increased speed of operation, i.e. with the laser beam the clamping beam descends without a mute position
Backgauge fingers servo-motorized:
For ‘conical’ profiles, mainly used for gutter manufacture, each finger of the back gauge is servo-motorized to produce a cone profile [see image]
Segmented ‘Goats Foot’ top tool, for box & pan type folding
Clamping Pressure Sensor:
This is a pressure sensor that reads the pressure value of the top clamping beam, It is controlled within the CNC EliteBender software. With this sensor you can control the pressure of clamping beam, for thickness hem [safe edge], delicate material.
The automatic radius software is included within the CNC EliteBender, it consists of an Encoder that reads the value of the position of the clamping beam, the position of the clamping beam determines the radius formed
