ChannelBender® EX

Affordable automated channel letter bending for sign makers.

Whether your goal is to eliminate the labor-intensive process of forming channel letters by hand or you simply need to increase production capacity, ChannelBender EX will exceed your expectations.  The EX model is the ChannelBender Series’ most affordable letter bending machine and it will outperform all of its competitors in speed, accuracy, and reduction of waste.

All cutting, notching, and flanging is done with powerful, reliable hydraulics, not pneumatics like some of the low-quality machines on the market. Versatile and reliable, the ChannelBender EX can flange, notch and form channel letters from aluminum coil measuring .032” to .063” in thickness and 1” to 6” in height.  This machine is the perfect choice if you’re looking to bring channel letter fabrication in-house for the first time or if you simply need to move beyond hand-forming.
