When bending material thicker than 10-gauge, at least two operators are needed to handle the plate, and manipulating it for various bends can be a strenuous work, not to mention a serious safety hazard for the operators. That's heavy stuff, and for these large-workpiece applications, a folding machine can step up to the plate.
The Bystronic Xpert press brake, with revolutionary ByVision Bending control, intuitive operator interface and unique dynamic hydraulic crowning system, provides the ultimate bending experience.
New Options: 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.
