HGG’S newest Multi-Profile Cutting Machine, the MPC 450 2.0Click image to enlargeHGG’S newest Multi-Profile Cutting Machine (MPC 450 2.0) provides a cost-effective and flexible solution for manufacturers that can no longer justify a dedicated machine for pipe profiling alone.

The MPC 450 2.0 offers three basic flexible machine configurations, to multiply capability, flexibility and versatility for today’s demanding economic conditions. Users can configure it to cut pipes, positioning material on pipe supports and clamping it in three chuck jaws; to cut box sections, positioning material on pipe supports in specially designed rotators and then clamping it in two diagonally opposite jaws of the chuck; or to cut profiles from bar flat stock, positioning and individually fixing material on a flat cutting table.

The MPC 450 2.0 is designed for 3D production automation as an integral part of the manufacturing process, from design and work preparation to cutting and finally, the fitting and welding of parts. The MPC 450 is easily programmed using HGG MDI (manual data input) and/or ProCAD software. CAD files are easily converted into “ready to cut” formats with HGG ProCAD software.

HGG ProGRAM software provides a direct link from independent workstations to the MPC 450 2.0 machine, providing basic programming of end cuts to complete highly accurate part design and programming of all profile cuts (even for complex structures). Finally, a new 360° optical laser scanner has the capability to detect any material section distortion in advance, improving accuracy even more.

Offer the term “metrology equipment” to a group of industrial or manufacturing engineers in a word-association test and it's highly likely CMM (coordinate measuring machine) would be the response.

Hydraulics vs. Electrics: Selecting the Right Press Brake

by Mary Scianna

If the press brakes in your fabrication shop are more than a decade old - not uncommon given the solid construction of most press brakes - and you're in the market for new replacement equipment, you may be surprised by the technological developments on today's press brakes.
