The BR-18 bead rolling machine has an ample 18'' throat depth making it perfect for strengthening any type of panel such as roof, deck, and hoods. This bead roller is manually operated by a hand crank that drives both the bottom and top bead rolls. A depth of bead can be altered by a simple top roll adjustment.
This bead rolling machine comes standard with a heavy duty stand with a roll rack and six sets of the most common rolls required by metal forming enthusiasts. For longevity the drive shafts ride in quality bushings that can be periodically fed grease through Zerk fittings.
Baileigh Industrial's line of bead rollers now has something for everyone. The BR-18M-24 bead roller is a manually operated bead roller based off of their popular BR-18E-24. This bead roller is made from of a heavy steel framework that is electro welded for further rigidity. It has a 24'' throat depth for almost any application, but is compact enough to make even the most demanding beading patterns.
The BR-18M-24 manual bead roller has a capacity of 18-gauge mild steel and 16-gauge aluminum. The bead depth is adjustable via the top roll. Baileigh offers many sets of tooling for the BR-18M-24 bead roller and the shaft diameter is 3/4'' and will fit most commercially available roll sets. All moving parts on the BR-18M-24 bead roller have bronze bushings for long life. Like most Baileigh bead rollers, the BR-18M-24 comes standard with a depth stop for perfectly straight beads, and a heavily constructed floor stand that includes a die rack. This bead roll is built to last.
