Press Brake Boasts Automatic Tool Changer and Bend Indicator to Eliminate Setup and Test Bends
The ATC can store more than 86 ft. of precision tooling. Its four-axis manipulator selects and places punches and dies from the tool magazine into the brake, avoiding costly delays typically associated with conventional tool changes. Tool changes are performed in 3 min. or less.
A precise (plus or minus 0.0004 in.) tapered backgauge provides continuously updated feedback to the machine’s AMNC/PC NT-based control. To provide maximum productivity, the HD’s intelligent control digitizes the bending process and delivers highly efficient offline programming. Enhanced network functions within the control allow operators to call up complete sets of bending data from the server. In addition, the control can create 3D images from DXF, DWG and IGES files. Generating bending data using 3D images makes programming a more intuitive process, and 3D simulation enables the identification of problems before they can occur.
