Press Brakes and Automated Bending Cells

October 2, 2019

Booth A2988

At FABTECH, SafanDarley focuses on bending, including stand-alone machines such as electronic and hybrid press brakes, as well as R-Brake and E-Brake Mini Cell automatic bending systems.

The R-Brake (pictured), a bending-cell concept based on the SafanDarley E-Brake Ultra press brake, integrates the press brake and robot into one system. In addition to advantages, such as a completely clear floor area in front of the machine, the R-Brake can be equipped with an automated tool- and gripper-changing system. This also makes the R-Brake suitable for smaller batch sizes. And, the cell can be switched quickly to manual bending.

The compact E-Brake 35-ton Mini Cell is ideal for bending smaller-sized parts. The optional automatic tool- and gripper-change function enables quick switches between different products.

The compact H-Brake Hybrid 110-ton Premium, powered via energy-efficient hybrid technology, is designed to achieve higher tonnages on a short working length. The O-frame base ensures a stable structure with minimal deflection, according to company officials. SafanDarley’s 40-ton E-Brake Premium Ergo features a large Q dimension—1090 mm for the unit displayed at FABTECH—that provides the ability to bend products with high upright sides.

Also, visit the booth for demonstrations of the company’s AutoPOL 3D-offline programming software. Batch & Remote functionality enables automatic processing of multiple parts. All tasks are performed without user input, results are reported back and production data created. This dramatically reduces programming costs and reports the overall outcome for each step in the process, according to company officials.
