FAST ACCURATE OPERATION
The TDFC Brake is designed specifically for bending the 90 degree bends on rectangular duct work. It is an extremely efficient tool to use for bending straight duct joints and fittings with TDC style and TDF style flange connectors. One (1) operator can quickly and easily slide a part into the machine and align the notches in an instant on the alignment blade located on the bending line. Other types of duct such as Slip and Drive or raw edge duct can also be folded or bent to 90°. The machine can also fold any angle less then 90°.
INNOVATIVE SAFETY FEATURES
A unique safety feature of the TDFC-Brake can minimize serious injury because full clamping forces are not applied until the clamp is less then finger thickness distance from metal to be formed. Full clamping forces are only applied when the clamp is less the ¼” from contacting the work metal.
The TDFC-Brake requires only 110V (or 1 phase 240V) electrical power and shop compressed air. No special high voltage wiring or expensive hydraulic oil is required. The machine can also be easily moved around in a shop with a pallet jack or fork lift. No expensive riggers are required as would be needed with a press brake. These factors will provide significant savings to the customer during installation or when the machine must be relocated in the shop.
