All electric press brake series
- February 10, 2019
Amada has introduced the EG Series press brake.
The EG Series consists of the EG 4010 and EG 6013. The press brakes feature dual servo power drive, containing two AC servo motors, one for bending and a second for high speed approach/return. The series offers extremely fast approach, bending and return speeds, providing faster cycle times and generating more parts per hour. Other features include highly accurate position detection and positioning and fewer velocity changes at bending start time.
The five axis back gauge speeds setup for complex parts, while high speed movement on all axes ensures gauge fingers are positioned as quickly as the operator positions the part. Standard Independent L-Axis Servo Drives (L-Shift) handle bending of a wide variety of part shapes and the tool navigator software positions the back gauge where each tool needs to be installed, shortening the tool installation process. The press brake’s low profile design enables part positioning over the top of the back gauge.
The high rigidity frame allows for a larger open height and stroke, and its larger open height allows deep box bending and easier retraction of parts with large down flanges. The frame is constructed from high tempered steel plate and eliminates welding stress.
Amada's latest control features an easy-to-use graphical interface that minimizes the learning curve and maximizes machine productivity. The 18.5 in. touchscreen display offers multiple modes of data entry (angle, depth, 2D and 3D) to maximize programming flexibility. Users benefit from secured local storage of machine setup and program data. The control mounted handwheel adjusts each of the machine’s axes. The press brake has a built-in barcode reader, and Amada’s SDD software database provides program storage on a local server when the control is networked.
Like all Amada machines, the EG press brake series is compatible with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), allowing users to improve manufacturing processes by utilizing technology advancements within their machines.
