Mittler Bros. has been producing metal working tools and fabrication equipment in the United States for over 30 years; now these products are available in Europe exclusively from Brown & Geeson Ltd. One of the first products to arrive is the Bead Roller which features a high quality billet aluminium frame offering a 610mm (24″) throat depth and 28.5mm (1-1/8″) throat height.
The roller is foot pedal operated via a variable speed controller, and features a forward and reverse switch. The easy to use design allows the depth of the bead to be adjusted. Both shafts are driven by the power unit which contains Oilite bushings to ensure a long service life. For the UK and Europe a voltage converter is required to convert the 110v operation to 240v.
The Mittler Bros. bead roller offers the widest range of standard round, standard flat, standard step, standard edge, 45°angled and specialty bead rolls. All the rollers have been CNC machined from high quality heat treated tool grade steel. Mittler states that the maximum material thicknesses the bead roller can accept are: Aluminium 19 GA – 1.1mm; Mild Steel 16 GA – 1.6mm; and Stainless Steel 24 GA – 0.6mm.
