This metal brake is plate and weldment steel construction, delivering superior performance and features in a rigid design.
The Synergy Control System is second to none. It is a highly advanced, Windows-based ECS CNC system that takes the complexity out of programming and running parts.
Combining automated bending of angles up to 145 degree, material clamping and material support make the AutoBrake® a powerful machine.
The folding beam consists of a thick plate for maximum resistance to bending forces with a machined seat to receive the bending blade.
The Autobrake® provides accuracy and repeatability when forming 16 gauge or lighter materials. This sheet metal brake is a high speed solution to make multiple bends while maintaining a high quality level in the end product. Both backgauge options provide accurate part location through the use of servo drives and are expandable with optional backgauge extensions. The rigid design includes crowning adjustments to ensure accurate bending regardless of raw material stresses. Various options of tooling are provided to help customize to your specific needs, and can be provided in tool steel or hardened.
The Synergy control offers high speed versatility to an end user. It offers multiple methods of programming from simple line-by-line to draw-to-auto program. Its network capabilities allow for multiple options, such as; Konnect, Konstruct, Mobile Konstruct, and overall shop management through linking multiple machines.
The Autobrake® design is a plate and weldment steel construction, delivering superior performance and features in a simplified rigid design. End housings are a plate-type construction bringing drive components close together for improved stiffness and performance. Actuating mechanisms are secured in rigid mounts at the outside of the housings, allowing easy maintenance.
Clamping and hemming capabilities come standard and are already included in the software. Clamping and hemming power is delivered to the clamp jaws by a series of spring washers to provide variable clamping pressures with a shock-absorbing end stop. This provides reliable clamping pressure to create open, tear drop, and closed hems to best suit your needs.

Synergy is the newest software designed for Roper Whitney’s line of powered folding machines. It is a highly advanced CNC system that takes the complexity out of programming and running parts. The full-color, graphical touch screen allows you to store, browse and search for parts, as well as create new parts on the fly.
The software also brings together information from the office-based Konstruct program and the field-based Konstruct Mobile with Roper Whitney’s technical support program Konnect.
- Easy Windows-based touch screen control
- Auto sequences the part
- 3-D part display
- DXF file import capability
