Versatile Sheetmetal Bending Solutions

Over 45 years of hydraulic sheet metal bending experience at your fingertips

Roto-Die’s unique hydraulic sheet metal bending brakes are regarded as an industry standard in HVAC and metal fabrication shops throughout the United States. Each sheet metal brake is a versatile, economical, productive tool satisfying a wide range of sheet metal bending and forming needs. We use heavy-duty hydraulics in all of our sheet metal brakes, making bending operations quick and easy – today and for decades to come. We also sell a complete line of OEM Roto-Die replacement parts – genuine parts made specifically for your press brake.

We manufacture hydraulic sheet metal benders capable of making accurate bends from 24 inches up to 12 feet in length. Capacities range from 16 gauge down to 10 gauge steel.

Versatile

A Roto-Die hydraulic sheet metal bender is as simple to operate as a hand brake – but has infinitely more production capacity.

  • By shifting the selections lever, a single operator can perform all basic hydraulic sheet metal bending forming operations. No dies to change.
  • The Roto-Die hydraulic bender forms full-length ducts, gravel stops, standing lock seams, flashing, and hemming operations accurately and economically.
  • The compactness inherent in the cylindrical die design permits acute reverse bends not possible with conventional wide-bed machines.
  • All Roto-Die hydraulic sheet metal benders index quickly and accurately to all forming stations. Automatic detention assures positive die alignment.
  • Centerline machined upper dies are instantly interchangeable in all Roto-Die openings without special stops or adjustments.

Productive

Most hydraulic sheet metal bending configurations are formed in one handling by one operator.

  • The ram may be jogged, stopped or returned to “up” position at any point of the stroke. It may also be inched for accurate positioning of the work, reducing material loss and gauge-adjustment time.
  • Disappearing pins are conveniently located for fast one-man positioning in cross-braking (paneling) and rectangular duct forming. Pin gauges are easily removed and relocated.

Profitable

Roto-Die hydraulic sheet metal benders are engineered to reduce labor costs while increasing shop productivity.

  • The patented Roto-Die principle reduces setup time by as much as 70%, compared with other power-forming equipment. Gauge and clearances are adjusted much quicker than on conventional hand brakes.
  • One-man operation cuts labor requirements in half on virtually all hydraulic sheet metal bender operations.
  • Simple adjustments permit operating speeds up to 50 strokes per minute for maximum production output.
  • Multiple handling of sheet stock is kept to a minimum. This allows you to fabricate most commercial ventilating jobs, including the new TDC duct system, in one-fourth the time that ordinary benders require
