3-D die design software allows you to build the die on the computer screen, fully assembled and ready to run as if it were built and sitting out on the shop floor. SolidWorks-based Logopress3 software even allows you to then simulate the die running in the press. Even better, it detects crashing and strip feeding interference problems on your computer screen rather than after the die has been built.
The Bystronic Xpert press brake, with revolutionary ByVision Bending control, intuitive operator interface and dynamic hydraulic crowning system, provides the ultimate bending experience. Voice Control for managing manual operator functions; LAMS ensures exact angles from the first bend regardless of material; PartID code scanning for program loads and part traceability.
