Robotic bending system for large parts
- February 11, 2017
Amada's HG 1303 Rm robotic bending system is designed for large parts, which typically requires two operators to safely handle or are difficult to manage by a single operator.
The HG 1303 press brake ensures outstanding precision due to an advanced crowning system in the lower beam combined with an automatic bend angle measurement system.
Amada’s HG series features an advanced Dual Servo Power (DSP) drive system that’s engineered to increase approach, bend and return speeds. This innovative system provides a cost-efficient and high-performance bending solution for thin-to-thick materials. The stability and accuracy of the HG series is further enhanced by a new, highly rigid frame design that features a larger open height than other machines in its class. The increased distance between tooling and greater stroke length yields a larger processing area — providing process range expansion by enabling deep box bending while making part extraction faster and easier.
A Thickness Detection System (TDS) maintains bending accuracy while processing materials that vary in type, thickness and grain direction. TDS reads variance of material thickness and compensates depth position automatically to ensure precise bending results. Amada’s HG series is also equipped with BI (Bend Indicator) sensors that utilize probe and laser technology. BI-S (probe type) or BI-L (laser type) result in trial-free bending. BI technology also boosts bending repeatability and reduces QA inspection and rework.
The HG series of servo-hydraulic press brakes, in combination with Amada’s highly-efficient bending robots, achieve maximum productivity. In addition, automation ensures optimal precision and process reliability while eliminating time-intensive manual set up. Even highly-complex parts and small lots can be processed cost-effectively.
