All-electric tube bending machines use electric, closed-loop servomotor axes to control the motion and speed of the bend tooling, providing programmable control over the range of each axis. Otherwise, all-electric tube bending machines are basically rotary draw benders—the design of which have not changed significantly for 50 years.
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.
