In Booth N-6009, Edwards Manufacturing Company (Albert Lea, MN) will be showing off ten Ironworker models and five Hydraulic Accessory Tools as part of their most extensive line of ironworkers and hydraulic accessory tools for the metal fabrication industry. With continuous innovation, they are expanding their Hydraulic Accessory Tool line with two exciting new products: the Horizontal Press and the Radius Roller. In 2009, Edwards starting asking more of ironworkers when they created the patent-pending Hydraulic Accessory Pack option that powers supplemental hydraulic tooling. They first made a Pipe/Tube Bender and fabrication shops went wild. Then they created a stout 40 Ton Shop Press and its little brother the 20 Ton, a powerful and compact machine that fits nicely on a shop bench.
After listening to their customers, the company has now developed a versatile and affordable Horizontal Press and Radius Roller with all of the utility one can imagine. The 20 Ton Horizontal Press offers 20 tons of force and accepts a great variety of tooling to form, brake, and straighten mild steel. This compact powerhouse quickly connects to an Edwards Ironworker with a Hydraulic Accessory Pack or an Edwards Porta-Power to greatly expand a shop’s fabrication capabilities. Designed for maximum tooling flexibility, the four pin locations are locked with a simple crank for inboard tool squaring. The included digital encoder reads positive stop for accurate repeatability within 0.01 in. The potential of this tool is only limited by a shop’s imagination.
The Pipe, Tube and Section Radius Roller is another essential quick-connect hydraulic tool. Plug it into an Edwards Ironworker with the Hydraulic Accessory Pack or power it separately with an Edwards Porta-Power to greatly expand your shop fabrication capabilities. Designed for medium to heavy material, this Radius Roller powers through jobs quickly and accurately. The variable speed hydraulic drive allows the shop to dial in the appropriate speed for various materials. Quickly change the orientation from vertical for smaller projects to horizontal for those larger, heavier jobs. Come meet the talented and friendly team of this 140-year-old manufacturer to know why ‘Made in America’ matters!
