MC Machinery System's new automatic tool changer for its BH series of dual drive press brakesClick image to enlarge

MC Machinery has introduced a new high capacity automatic tool changer for its BH series of dual drive press brakes.

The ATC is designed to increase production levels and utilization rates while reducing setup time, especially in high mix, low volume environments.

The ATC allows for fully automated tool setup and removal, freeing up the operator to perform other tasks. Its available 107.3 x 170.6 ft storage capacity allows for tooling variation ranging from high runner V-dies to specialized hemming or offset tools.

Up to two inch V-die openings and 19.7 inch lengths can be placed with the single, large capacity tool manipulator with the added functionality of pick and place for small tool sections for setups that do not require the full setup to be removed. The manipulator is also equipped with a tool & bed cleaner that runs automatically during tool changes.

The ATC is engineered for operators of all experience levels. Programs can be created offline using DiamondBend software, at the control, or imported from other MOS controlled press brakes. Further support for operators is available with MC Machinery’s VIDERE operator support system for real-time bending information, sequences, and automatic tool changes.
