Amada HS 8025 series press brakeClick image to enlargeAmada's HS series press brakes are eco-friendly machines the company says provides maximum performance and ease of use.

 The inverter-controlled drive on the HS series reflects Amada’s ongoing commitment to environmental protection. The new drive system uses a frequency inverter that controls the motor pump and ensures efficiency by operating only when necessary. The system continually monitors and self-regulates bending requirements—this translates to using 20 per cent less energy, a significant reduction in maintenance requirements, less oil consumption, lower noise levels and an increase in reliability.

Additional features include:

· Numeric Control (NC) – The AB PAD is equipped with an intuitive touchscreen interface. Users can remotely monitor the operation of the machine, transfer programs and perform diagnostics.

· S-GRIP Punch Holders – Allows the brake operator to change punches on the press brake quickly and safely without requiring a wrench. The patented S-GRIP design dramatically decreases tool changeover time, thereby increasing bending productivity.

· Multiple Axis Backgauge – The lightweight but rigid design allows for high
speed and precise positioning. With the gauging capacity of up to 40", large components can be easily processed.

There are two accurate backgauge configurations available to meet your specific requirements. The 2 axes (L, Z) configuration is ideal for simple parts. For complex stage bending, the 6 axes configuration (L1 L2, Y1 Y2, Z1 Z2) provides greater flexibility. Both configurations are engineered for high speed, unmatched positioning accuracy and precise repeatability.

The Amada AB pad reduces the learning curve for new operators by providing three user-friendly programming modes (Depth, Angle and 2D). Depth mode allows the operator to use the teaching hand wheel to set all of the axes and generate a program. Angle mode utilizes a graphic tool database. The operator enters tooling, material and part information to create a program that is complete with proper bend allowances—that are calculated by the control. The 2D mode allows the operator to draw a profile of the part using the touchscreen control. After inputting all of the angles and dimensions, the control will automatically select the appropriate tooling and generate the optimal bend sequence.

With models ranging in capacity from 50-220 tons, the HS series can handle a full range of applications in bend lengths from 82 to 169 in. (2,083 to 4,293 mm). All models feature an open height of 18.5 in. (470 mm) and a stroke length of 7.87 in. (200 mm) allowing deep box bending of parts that are nearly 8 in. (203 mm) in height. Amada’s HS series is engineered to ensure precision bending in an economical turnkey system.
