Amada's automated robotic bending cellClick image to enlargeExhibitor: Amada America Booth: B-2503

The EG 6013 AR is an automated robotic bending cell designed for high speed fabricating of small, complex parts.

Equipped with what Amada says is the world's first twin servo electric drive system, the EG 6013 AR ensures high speed and high accuracy bending with lower power usage. It is engineered for the unmanned production of any lot size or part mix.

Automation eliminates the need for human operation and the associated risk of dealing with difficult-to-handle small parts. Features such as automatic angle measuring, offline programming, multiple part load/unload stations and an automatic tool changer all add to the system's impressive list of production capabilities. In addition, a Thickness Detection System (TDS) reads the variance in material thicknesses and compensates depth position automatically to ensure accurate bending.
