Wila USA has introduced Smart Tool Locator to help fabricators increase press brake productivity.

The locator indicates through integrated LED lights in the new standard hydraulic clamping system where the press brake operator has to position the tooling. The press brake CNC control conrols the LED lights. The locator also indicates to the operator where to make the next bend, following the bend sequences of the part that is being formed. It helps make it faster and easier for fabricators to position tooling on the right location, increasing overall productivity, claims Wil

Smart Tool Locator is being offered as an option on Wila’s new standard premium clamping system. The company says it will also be available on other Wila toolholders later in 2014 as well as for retrofit purposes (as long as the press brake CNC control software has been upgraded to interface witht the Smart Tool Locator.

The LED lights are mounted behind the ruler inside the cover strip of the clamping system, so the locator is protected from damage and doesn’t interfere with the sheet metal part being formed.
