The makers of Gabro box and pan brakes say they eliminate conventional segments for work clamping, instead using standard steel angle cut as required for folding box ends. A narrow bed ensures that return bends can be made with the part suspended inside the machine. The clamp bar can also be removed so brackets and channels can be formed. The folding bar has a selective bending device, which allows for quick interrupted or partial folds.
