Hand Brakes - HBT Series

TENNSMITH's new HBT72-16 is designed to provide forming capabilities for complex parts. This machine is truly a universal hand brake, which allows for the removal of both upper and lower segments of fingers. Complex parts, such as HVAC transverse duct forming and down flanged parts, as well as architectural sheet metal and signage applications, can easily be formed using this machine.

The HBT72-16 is built with the same high-quality features and standards that TENNSMITH brakes are recognized for throughout the industry. Please consult TENNSMITH for specific forming questions or applications.
