Amada's HG series press brakes and patented Automatic Tool Changer (ATC)Click image to enlarge

By integrating a bending robot with the precision of Amada's HG Series press brake and patented Automatic Tool Changer (ATC), fabricators can automatically bend a variety of parts with maximum accuracy. The HG ARs supports workpieces up to 998 x 798 mm (39.3 x 31.4 in.) and has a weight capacity of 20 kg (44 lb).

Amada's ATC ensures that tools are loaded quickly and precisely. Four tool manipulators quickly load tooling from 15 punch stockers and 18 die stockers. Each stocker can hold 800 mm (31.5 in.) in tooling which brings the ATC's tool capacity to over 26 m (86 ft).

A six axis robot with a wide range of motion capabilities performs all part loading, bending, and unloading operations.During bending, a potentiometer backgauge system with additional side gauge also compensates for any deviation when the workpiece is placed on the die. These compensating machine characteristics ensure that parts are produced consistently and with maximum accuracy.
