Cincinnati Incorporated's new Baseform press brake with PC-based control is available in 90- and 175-ton capacities. It includes a microcrowned bed and ±0.0004-in. repeatability. Offline programming is optional.
Operators can program backgauge positions necessary to form multiple flanges in one handling. Gauge allowance, clamp position, retract distance, and gauge pause also are programmable. Features include a closed-loop servo drive, a full-length bar, two adjustable gauge holders with two sets of fingers, and a positioning tool.
The PC-based control combines a 3-D graphics interface with touchscreen operation. New part programs can be generated through manual data entry or by drawing the part in cross section or flat pattern and then selecting tooling and bend sequence. A job setup page displays tool segment lengths and tool locations, as well as notes to help reduce setup time.
