Safan: 30% faster cycle times
- November 4, 2001
The Safan E-Brake features a servo electric drive based on the pulley principle, which the company says ensures even distribution of forces.
It means that in approximately 98 per cent of cases, no crowning table is required. Westway Machinery, Mississauga, ON, is the exclusive Canadian distributor of the Safan E-Brakes.
The unique, patented roller drive system in the upper beam ensures a uniform and direct distribution of forces. The servo electronic drive with fast start and stop times allows for bending speeds of up to 20 mm/sec. The integration of this drive, combined with the company's touch screen control panel and the safety light screen, means cycle times are typically cut by 30 per cent.. In addition, the machine consumes up to 50 per cent less energy.
