Sheetmetal folding machines at EMEX 2012

Variobend AG offers elegant solutions of up and down bending machines and long length folding machines for manufacturers that need to bend sheet metal.

Driven by a passion to innovate and bring double bending capability to medium and small manufacturers, the engineers at Variobend developed and patented a unique bending system. This bending technology results in a superior clearance and in an exceptional variety of profiles and flexibility.

Introducing the new up and down bending machine DB 6.1.5 from Variobend, with state of the art technology, Euro Tools are proud to be appointed as the sole distributor within New Zealand for Variobend, a Swiss made long folder.


The bending capacity is 1.5mm steel, 2mm aluminium and 1mm stainless steel with a working length of 6400mm. The machine comes complete with angular bending beam for unique profile varieties, comprehensive safety package including light curtain and brush table support for scratch free support of the material and tapered folding function, in addition to a roller shear for quick and easy cutting to specification.

The DB 6.1.5 operation only requires one person and time usually afforded to turning and flipping material is now eliminated. In effect, productivity will be doubled and manufacturing costs will be halved with the advantage of a two person job being reduced to that of one.

Variobend offers a varity of products ranging from standard simple long folders with a capacity of 4000mm to double folders 2mm steel, 8000mm long.

Euro Tools is also very proud to be associated with Schechtl a German based company producing high quality folding and cutting facilities ranging from hand folders right through to CNC operated folding machines.
