New press brake

Precise bending for flexible requirements
Since July, the bending area at BVS Blechtechnik has comprised a total of 14 machines. The latest NC-controlled press brake will enable the specialists to produce versatile folded parts even more effectively in the future. Whether small or large formats, simple or complex components – the new press brake is ideal for BVS Blechtechnik’s wide range of products. Its optimized control system with simple operation enables rapid and high-precision bending.

The HG-1003 press brake from Amada was installed at the end of June. In close consultation, the machine manufacturer produced the system specifically for BVS’s needs and subsequently included it in Amada’s program as a series machine. The fast programming system, the easy-to-operate AMNC 3i control system and the large opening width are the big plus points of the new acquisition. The machine operator calls up the program data calculated via offline programming on the user-friendly multi-touch LCD panel and receives all bending information at a glance. The bending sequence, the set-up plan and the detailed bending process are displayed intuitively for processing.

The Amada technicians took the request for a large press beam opening and an automatically movable foot pedal into account when configuring the machine. Thanks to the large opening width of 650 mm, large box dimensions are now possible for large bent parts. In the past, some of these had to be realized by welding. This saves time and offers flexible use for the widely varying bending jobs at BVS. The automatically moving foot pedal also shortens the processing time and is extremely ergonomic. This automatically moves the operating unit to the next bending position where the respective tool is available for the next bending operation. The hybrid drive system guarantees a high-precision bending result regardless of the bending length and position.

Whether using this new hybrid press brake, the automatic folding robots or the semi-automatic folding machine – at BVS Blechtechnik we find the optimum bending process for individual sheet metal products for every application.
