TRUMPF's TruBend series 7000 precision press brake is a compact machine for the production of small bent parts up to 40 in. Typical applications include sheet metal parts used in the production of vending machines and electrical equipment, as well as in the telecommunications and aerospace industries.
The backgauge is made with lightweight carbon fiber, and the surfaces on which the bent part contacts the fingers of the backgauge are made of hardened steel. A laser diode projects the bend line onto the surface of the sheet metal, simplifying the accuracy of guiding the workpiece into the backgauge.
The torque motor, which drives the beam, can deliver power even at low speeds. It ensures rapid axis movements and is low-maintenance since it has no gears, the company states.
Gas spring-supported pedals allow the height and angle of the foot rests to be adjusted. The arm support also is adjustable in height so that every operator can set up his or her workplace individually.
