Press Brake features active hydraulic crowning capabilities.

December 16, 2013

Designed for American tool integration, CNC-synchronized Xact Press Brake can accommodate all types of punches and dies with appropriate adapters. Standard active hydraulic crowning capabilities deliver exact bend angles across entire bed length, while independently mounted precision linear scale encoders monitor ram position. Parallelism and ram movement are controlled to within ±0.0004 in. accuracy. Equipped with graphics-based DNC controller, Xact offers 2-D visualization of part processing. Read More

Touchscreen Control retrofits existing press brakes.

July 23, 2013

Available for Autoform, Formaster, Formaster II, CB, CBII, and AutoShape press brakes, Touchscreen Control and optional Bend Simulation Software enable 3D rotational viewing of part shape and gage fingers. Control aids operators with automatic bend simulations, graphic displays of parts before and after bend, part orientation, setup notes, and tool library. Allowing for off-line programming, software includes CAD file import, 3D forming simulations, and automatic flat blank calculation. Read More

Press Brake includes digital encoders.

June 17, 2013

Available in 90–350 ton capacities and 8–16 ft overall bed lengths, Proform+ is equipped with dual pressure transducers on hydraulic cylinders for optimized tonnage accuracy, and digital encoders for ±0.0004 in. ram repeatability. PC-based control is bed-mounted to machine with swinging pendent arm mount and includes trackball and keyboard. Optional Wila crowning system compensates for bed and ram deflections during bending, and eliminates trial-and-error approach used in die shimming. Read More
