Tapco MX Brake

tapco mx brake


Quality features inside and out ensure the MX Series — combining an MX Series brake, an MX Stand and adjustable MAX cut-off — delivers heavy-duty bending power without sacrificing precision.

Stable and tough, the MX Series brake features double-walled pivot arms for added strength, along with die castings with reinforcing ribs for increased bending performance and reduced deflection. The trapezoidal, wide-plank MX Stand offers stability, and the adjustable MAX Cut-Off shear ensures precise, factory-quality cuts to eliminate the need for unsafe, repetitive utility knife and sheer cutting.
