Sheet Metal Hand Brake Machines by Chicago Dreis Krump

Our metal benders are available in standard straight bending or Box Pan brake style, floor mounted or benchtop and even push button control with hydraulic power. A sheet metal hand brake normally bends sheet metal by using a hinged clamping bar to hold the metal down against the bed. A hinged bending “leaf” is lifted to fold the metal around the fulcrum point of the clamping bar to the desired angle which is controlled using a stop rod.
A box and pan brake machine is needed to avoid having the metal hit against the clamping bar when the 3rd and 4th sides are being bent. This is done by removing a “finger” from the clamping bar at each end of the box since the clamping bar is divided up into many sub-assemblies called “fingers”.

Chicago Dreis Krump offers more machine options: Extension Fingers are used to form inside corners with a return flange across the top. See pictures above and down below. Open End Fingers are used to form tubes of triangular, square, rectangular, or tapered shape. See picture below. Radius Nose Bars are available for bending your metal around a radius, which is useful for bending aircraft aluminum. See picture below. An insert bar is used to form offset (“zig-zag”) bends close together. Radius formers are attachments used for hand forming of thin sheet metal shapes such as gutters, architectural mouldings and prototype modeling.

Don’t settle for a poorly engineered machine. Since the Chicago Dreis & Krump Company pioneered the standard sheet metal bending Hand Brake in the year 1899, lots of people have copied their designs, but none have been able to surpass their quality, engineering, dependability, or options, then or now. Available options include a handwheel back gauge, extra small insert bar, radius formers, open end fingers, extension fingers, radius nose bars, and even push button hydraulic powered metal bending.

Incorporates all of the outstanding features of the standard hand brake plus removable, sectioned fingers that can bend any length of metal from 3 inches long to the full length of the machine. Boxes and pans can be up to 6 inches deep. A very versatile well built Chicago Dreis & Krump machine.

Options most hand brakes can’t offer:
� Handwheel Back Gauge with 25″ travel to measure and square up your metal (see below)
� Extension Fingers (to form rigid inside corners with a return flange across the top)
� Open End Fingers (to form tubes of triangular, square, rectangular, or tapered shape)
� Radius Nose Bars up to 1.5″ (great for aluminum aircraft work)
� Insert Bar – 1/4 inch (for closer offset bends)
� Radius Formers – for forming gutters, mouldings, prototypes, from thin sheet metal.

Add an optional Chicago Dreis & Krump Back Gauge:

Who says a hand brake can’t have sophistication?
Tired of always using a tape measure to mark lines that must be lined up with the nose bar? This back gauge has a 25 inch travel with a inch/cm scale so it is a must for those who want a labor saving, time saving, accuracy improving hand cranked back gauge to speed up production and improve quality. It measures where your metal bend will be and it squares up your metal to the machine.

A strong 6 ton magnet in the bed is activated by foot pedal or push button control to hold down a mild steel clamping bar of almost any configuration across the bed width or bed length. The sheet metal is pinned between the magnetic mild steel clamping bar. The bottom bending leaf is lifted to make the bend. The steel clamping bar can be made of straight bars (of various widths for tight boxes) for straight bends or segmented clamping bars for box and pan applications of any other configuration such as totally enclosed boxes, triangles, alternate bends on varying planes, round items such as scrolling applications, and much more. Great for bending mild steel sheet metal, stainless steel, aluminum, coated materials, and heated plastics. The bottom leaf�s bending extension can be removed for the tightest bends. The scaled stroke angle control can be set for repeat bends. Parts supports and adjustable back gauge for production runs, easy to use gap adjustments on the clamping bars for different sheet metal thicknesses.

Design of Load Balancer

POWERMASTER Overhead Spring Balancers are specially designed to free the operator from weight of the hand tools. When properly balanced by adjusting spring tension, the load balancing tools become almost weightless in the hands of the operator, and can be moved up and down with very little effort.

Safety Features of Load Balancers

Prior to the safety initiatives and modifications undertaken by Powermaster older design Spring Balancers had only limited safety provisions, due to which these older type Spring Balancers were prone to operational hazards and industrial accidents leading tohuge compensations.
Powermaster has introduced several safety features into our new designed Spring Balancers while retaining all the existing safety features.
Powermaster Load Balancers have thus become more user friendly, eliminating chances of accidents.

Exclusive Safety Features of Load Balancers Introduced:

Spring Balancers from other suppliers are supplied with opening both in Body Cover causing accidental crunch of operator’s fingers between revolving drum and the body of the Spring Balancers. To prevent this, side windows on the body of the load balancing tools and cover have been eliminated. This would prevent industrial accidents.

    In the unfortunate event of accidental dislodging of the suspended weight, breakage of bottom hook / wire rope, spring tension will pull back the wire rope, resulting in whiping action likely to hurt personnel around.
    This mechanism of the load balancer will lock the last revolving drum pulley the wire rope assembly will be stopped with max. 20cm travel. This will prevent the whiping of wire rope assembly avoided any injury to operator or any personnel around.
    live video of load balancers (Windows Media Video – 2.8MB)
    In order to prevent wear of the slot of the Spring Balancer body, a split type Nylon liner for wire rope has been introduced in the new design Spring Balancers.
    This liner can be removed and installed on site without any need for dismantling of the wire rope.
    This will prevent wear of the costly body resulting in overall saving and reduced down time of equipment.
    live video (Windows Media Video – 744KB)
    In Spring Balancers from other manufactures the worm gear box for adjustment of Spring Tension worked in the horizontal axis. Gear box position has been rotated through 90 degrees so that spring tension adjustment can be made by working in vertical axis.
    This will facilitate adjustment from ground level without any need to rise up to Spring Balancer hanging level. This reduces down time, facilities easy operation and reduces the chance of any mishap during an operator rising to the level of the balancer.
    live video (Windows Media Video – 1.2MB)
    A small slot has been provided to facilitate removal and Re-installation of the wire rope without any need for dismantling of the Spring Balancers. This will reduce the down time of the equipment. This facility is not available for long range Spring Balancers.
    live video (Windows Media Video – 975KB)
    No longer do you need to handle open springs which are difficult and dangerous to handle with sharp edges. All springs are now supplied in concealed containers for easy replacement. With containerised springs accidents are avoided during maintenance and replacements of springs.

    Driver Safety

    For most of us, driving is a way to stay connected to our world: to visit friends, go shopping and remain mobile. Unfortunately, aging can challenge our senses, along with physical and mental capabilities and ultimately may impact our ability to safely transport ourselves and others.

    At Palisades Rehab, our occupational therapy practitioners have the expertise to assess vision, cognition, motor skills and perception. Through this evaluation, therapists can help older drivers compensate for life changes that impact their driving. And, when it’s time to give up driving, our OT team helps patients (1) adjust to the idea, (2) consider other forms of transportation, and (3) remain as independent and safe as possible.

According to NJ Direct Access Law, you can see a physical therapist for up to 30 days before requiring a prescription for further treatment. NJ Direct Access allows you to begin your treatment program sooner so you can get back on your feet faster.
