Bend and shape all types of metal with easy-to-use hand and foot operated engineering brakes. These engineering machine tools are simple to adjust and operate, making them an essential part of any working metal shop.
Engineering brakes create sharp, consistent creases in sheet metal with a simple, motorless lever mechanism. Pan brakes are especially versatile among bench and stationary machinery because their removable clamping fingers allow for the fabrication of complex forms such as boxes and pans, where bending must be limited to a specific section of the material. Bend metal to your will with our simple, reliable engineering brakes.
We offer engineering brakes designed to fit inside any metal shop. Hand brakes provide excellent leverage, but you may prefer the sleek design and operational convenience of a floor brake. Our brakes are also available in a variety of sizes, so you can be sure to find one that suits your needs, whether you're working in a large space or a small one.
Pan brakes are by far the most convenient and consistent option when bending large quantities of sheet metal. Other solutions, such as vice grips, simply don't provide the leverage or surface area necessary to ensure a professional result. You can improve the precision of your bends even further with a digital readout from our bench and stationary accessories.
Whether you're establishing a new metal shop or upgrading your existing equipment, a good engineer knows that a reliable brake can make or break a project. Invest in a pan brake with a varied array of fingers, and make sure to take the dimensions of your shop space into account, to ensure that you get the best brake for you and anyone else who uses your tools.
