Folding Machine KST

Double folding machine KST is the latest innovation in product development. Welded steel frame provides a strong body for sheets bending. New KST is more efficient and quieter. It’s speed demanding movements carry out by a servo-controlled electric motors; the power and strength for the sheet bending – by hydraulic actuators. Hydraulic unit has silent double action cogwheel pumps. Thanks to product development travel of pneumatically actuated grippers has increased, and the adhesive strength improved.

VP5000PC 3D software is easy to use and can be customized individually. Network Interface allows remote access to libraries and profiles editing, import and export are easy.

Open hem pressing and rounded corner profile folding as standard features.

Manual and automatic mode.

VP5000PC Software:


  • In addition to Standard profile library it is possible to create user libraries
  • Profiles are created visually in edit mode by touch to touch, by adding lengths and angles
  • Bending order and direction can be visually edited on the screen
  • Profiles can be added to and removed from the libraries
  • Profiles can be moved or copied from one library to another
  • Profile to be run can be selected from the library by touching the icon on the screen
  • Profile libraries can be imported/exported from/to another machine
  • Before run it is possible to set the quantity counter
  • Bending of the profile can be simulated and checked on the display before the run
  • Shape of profile can be changed by touching the profile table on the screen (angle, length, lift height etc.)
  • Running parameters for new materials can be created. For each material it is possible to create an angle correction table to eliminate the spring back effects of the material.
  • List programming mode. Profile information can be entered row by row using back gauge distances and angles (no simulation and profile display)
  • In Manual mode it is possible to set one back gauge distance and bend angle. Upper tool and bending beams can be controlled using joysticks below the PC panel.
  • Service-, lubrication interval- and operation hour counters
  • Service mode
  • Emergency stop switches
  • Emergency stop cable along the machine
  • Duty disable switch
  • Protection from upper beam pressing, laser sensor
  • Protection from edging unit/roll forming unit, ligth barriers
  • Area protection fences
