The catch to operating at higher production speeds is that metalformers often see jumps in scrap rates and accelerated wear-and-tear on the press and tooling. New, and some tried-and-true, mechanical press technologies help metalformers strike a balance between high speed and high precision.
The Bystronic Xpert press brake features advanced ByVision Bending control, intuitive operator interface + unique dynamic hydraulic crowning system = the ultimate bending experience. Options: Voice Control; LAMS (exact angles from the first bend); PartID code scanning; Optical Bend Guiding. Bystronic's RF-A and XPT light-weight precision segmented tools ensure fast tool setups and maximum operator ergonomics.
