Center Clamping Drive System

For maximum hemming capacity, a strong feature of the Tennsmith SBS Series 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 twin support legs of the SBS provide positive resistance to the floor enhancing machine rigidity.

The twin motor design is capable of bending speeds up to 80 degrees per second. This design also eliminates torque build up commonly found on competitor’s chain drive folders.
