I HAVE BEEN A ROOFER FOR 19 YEARS AND TO DATE HAVE DONE 982 ROOFS. SOME OF THEM , 25 OR SO, WERE STANDING SEAM COPPER ROOFS. WE HAVE ALWAYS USED 100 YEAR OLD HAND TOOLS TO DO THIS AND DONE IT IN THE TRADITIONAL WAY. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE TO FIND ELECTRIC OR PNEUMATIC OR HAND OPPERATED CRIMPERS AND SEAM FOLDERS FOR DOING THIS. THANKS, DAVE

I'll bet those are some beautiful roofs you've made! Perhaps someone else here in the forum will know of something but I do not know of any tools quite like what you're describing. Sorry. One thing you might consider is a handbrake (such as those manufactured by Tapco and Van Mark) or a pressbrake to help simplify some of your easier bends. There are also, of course, mobile rollformers which you can purchase that make interlocking standing seam panels.
