Automated Robotic Bending CellOctober 1, 2014
Amada America Inc.
Amongst the firm’s dazzling display of press brakes (including the new HG 1003 ATC servo-hydraulic model with automatic tool changer) and laser-cutting machines (including the LC 2515 C1 AJ punch/fiber-laser combination machine that features a 2-kW fiber laser and 49-station multipurpose turret), Amada booth visitors will discover the new EG 6013 AR robotic bending cell. It combines a servo-electric press brake with an advanced six-axis bending robot, ready to tackle small, complex parts while eliminating the need for human intervention and the associated risks of dealing with difficult-to-handle small parts.
Equipped with reportedly the world’s first twin-servo electric drive system, the EG 6013 AR ensures high-speed high-accuracy bending with lower power usage. Features include automatic angle measuring, offline programming, multiple part load/ unload stations and an automatic tool changer.Completed parts can be stacked by the robot, placed in boxes or placed on a synchronized conveyor belt. And, the robot can change bending tools and grippers in addition to handling workpiece manipulation throughout the entire bending process. www.amada.com
