Measuring the bends and straight sections of a bent tube can be tricky and time-consuming, especially if the tube has a large number of bends in several directions. Photogrammetry, also known as optical measurement, uses a booth equipped with several digital cameras to make a digital image of the part, allowing fast, easy measurements.
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.
