Flexible productivity
The HD press brake series are available in capacities from 55 to 600 tons (45 to 544 metric tons) and can handle bend lengths from 79 to 276 in. (2,007 to 7010 mm).

A hybrid drive requires less hydraulic fluid than conventional machines and maintains a +/- .00004 in. (0.001 mm) repeatability rate. A patented variable slit crowning feature for angle accuracy is available on most models. A bending sensor eliminates test bends, while an expanded processing area enables deep box bending.

The Fixed Height (AFH) tooling uses punch profiles that are taller and narrower for a larger part bending area. Multiple punch and die profiles have common heights (punch profiles have a 120 mm height and AFH 1-V dies have common pass heights of 60 mm) for faster brake setup and easier stage bending.

 

Bystronic

Dual electric motors
The Xcite 80E is equipped with dual electric motors and is 2.5 times faster than a hydraulic press brake in completing comparable bends, according to the company. The upper tool can be positioned quickly close to the metal sheet using Bystronic’s Fast Bend+Safety system. It has 88 tons (80 metric tons) of bending force capability. It can bend to within tolerance of +/- 25 arc minutes and has a repeatability of +/- 0.000098 in. (0.002 mm).

American-made press 
The Baseform press brake is available in 90 and 175 ton (82 to 159 metric ton) capacity models and includes a micro-crowned bed and +/- 0.0004 in. (+/- 0.01 mm) repeatability. It comes standard with a backgauge to reduce setup and handling time in processing different jobs. Operators can program backgauge positions to form multiple flanges in one handling. Gauge allowance, clamp position, retract distance and gauge pause are programmable, and a closed loop servo drive provides fast and precision positions, claims the company.

 

Greenerd

Hydraulic forming press
A 75 ton (68 metric ton) hydraulic forming press designed for a medical device manufacturer producing Titanium blanks has helped cut costs by reducing scrap, says Greenerd. The press is equipped with a 35 ton (32 metric ton) cushion cylinder also used as a knockout. A secondary ram-mounted 20 ton (18 metric ton) cushion/eject has proportionally controlled speed for the eject function. It provides hydraulic clamping for quick change-over of tooling and RFID identification of tooling to prevent tooling errors. Capable of multiple dwell positions and times during each cycle, it has a slow closed-loop processing speed control for drawing tough alloys.

 

LVD Strippit

Auto Tool changing
ToolCell is a hydraulic press brake with an automatic load/unload tool changer unit that the company says reduces press brake setup time. A new larger capacity 220 ton (200 metric ton) model features a bend length configuration of 160 in. (4980 mm). It holds up to two lengths of self-seating top tooling (punches) and five lengths of bottom tooling (Vee-dies). The tooling stadium can be equipped with a flexible tooling configuration for different application requirements. It features the company’s Easy-Form laser in-process angle monitoring and correction technology.

 

MC Machinery

High speed bending
The BB Series ball screw brake is driven by an AC Servo motor and ball screw mechanism. It has a high speed ram and high precision repeatability (± 0.001 mm). The ram shaft drive (oil-less and quiet in operation) enables high speed movement at 100 mm/sec and stable repeat-stop accuracy.   

 

Pacific press

Rigid, interlocked design
The K series press brakes come in custom tonnage configurations ranging from 175 to 2000 tons (159 to 1814 metric ton) and custom bed lengths from 8 to 30 ft (2 to 9 m). They are designed for medium to heavy gauge bending, feature a rigid, interlocked design and pre-crowned beds.

 

Prima Power

Servo-electric press brake
The eP-Series press brake (eP-1030) features the Prima Electro CNC control and servo-electric drive system. A pulley-belt system distributes the force over the entire bending length to eliminate upper tool deformation. It features the company’s Lazer-Safe Block Laser safety device for high speed closing down to 2 mm. Linear scales, mounted on independent side frames, have a ram positioning accuracy of +/- 0.005 mm.

 

Salvagnini

Automated bending
The 2013 P4Xe panel bender processes cut blanks with zero setup time, says the company, using universal tooling and the company’s Automated Bending Technology (ABT) to produce parts. It features Salvagnini’s SiX controller with automatic part centering and automatic compensation for the introduction of different materials or thicknesses, or for deflections that may occur during processing.

TRUMPF

Flexible bending
The TruBend 5130, part of the 5000 series, can help customers reduce cycle times by up to 30 per cent, claims the company. The press brake features four-cylinder technology for more bending space, ACB (Automatically Controlled Bending), a press force of 141 tons (127 metric tons), bending length up to 127 in. (3,225 mm), a quick-change tooling system, an installation height up to 24 in. (610 mm), and a six-axis backgauge.

V dies for thick, heavy materials
The Exacta Adjustable V dies for bending thick, heavy materials make it possible to adjust the width of the V-opening using a single die, eliminating the need to purchase multiple dies with different V openings, says the company.

The V opening can be adjusted from one to 18 in. (25 to 457 mm) by one-inch increments. Rather than changing out the die for each new bend, a single operator can adjust the V opening as needed by moving and then locking the side blocks into position. The die assembly can be configured to remain on the press permanently and function as a standard die holder, reducing operator set up time. They can withstand a tonnage of up to 200 tons (181 metric tons) per ft (0.3 per m).
