The versatile solution for lean sheet metal forming in a wide variety of metal forming applications.

The name speaks for itself: This folding machine is designed to meet the demands in a wide range of applications. Its flexibility through applications up to 4 mm steel is the result of Schröder Maschinenbau’s decades of experience in industrial metal folding. The PowerBend Universal provides the perfect balance between technology and performance. It was engineered using state of the art tools and finite element analysis.

The standard control system is designed for programming simple profiles and parts. Anyone can program with the nano Touch, making it the perfect machine for a wide array of production requirements. For increased production and efficiency without increased complexity.

Machine details:

  • Nano Touch control mounted on swivel arm
  • Dual folding beam drive: 2 × 2.2 kW (controlled through contactors, 48°/sec)
  • Middle motor clamping beam drive: 3.0 kW (controlled through contactors, 20 mm/sec, trapezoidal spindle)
  • Clamping beam orientation 48°
  • Manual folding beam adjustment 80 mm
  • Clamping beam stroke 350 mm (325 mm with manual clamping device)
  • Manual tool clamping device for clamping beam and folding beam
  • Manual folding beam adjustment 80 mm
  • Foot switch
  • Anchor plates incl. dowels
  • Standard machine without folding- and clamping beam tools
  • Bottom beam blade, ca. 1100 N/mm², one piece (minimum gauge varies according to equipment)


POS 2000 Professional (optional)

The proven POS 2000 Professional makes programming a folding machine fast and comfortable. The desired program components can be selected from a comprehensive and expandable catalog, the angle and side dimensions are easily changed by pressing the monitor.

The control software displays exactly what the machine is doing: The folding machine, work piece, and tool are displayed schematically and updated for every bending step. Anyone who programs preparation of the work away from the machine can test the quality of their program using the bending simulation, which effectively avoids waste and delays during production.

The software not only controls the machine, but also offers assistance to the user: all of the necessary operator activities like turning, rotating, etc. are displayed for each bending step.


The latest software invention from Schröder Group and perfect for workshop
and factory application: nano Touch is a modern alphanumeric control that
serves as the standard software for the folding machines MAK V,
and MAKV S. Touch controls the clamping beam and the folding beam using a path measurement system, and the motorized back stop is controlled via the digitally controlled
frequency inverter. The user interface is clearly laid-out and combines
easy-to-understand icons with text and numerical displays.
