D&S Mfg., Black River Falls, Wis., has installed an Accurpress model 548514 Accell series synchronized, CNC press brake, designed to meet changing customer project parameters.
The machine features an adjustable bottom V die. With its previous machine, operators had to remove the lower die using a forklift each time product was changed out. With the new press brake, operators can adjust the lower die automatically from 1.5 to 8 in.
The machine also provides the company with additional tonnage, a larger opening height, and help with tolerances, the company states. It can bend up to 485 tons on a 14-ft. bed and offers a six-axis backgauge.
D&S Mfg. is a custom manufacturer of large-scale components, assemblies, and complete weldments.
