The Beyeler Xpert press brake from Bystronic has the world's most comprehensive database related to material bend allowances and extensive empirical bending knowledge, according to the company. It can be operated independent of previous operator experience. The machine supports all major tooling styles; its open control allows individual adjustment of all calculations.
The press brake adjusts ram position and crowning in response to material properties. It provides 0.00015-in. ram positioning repetition accuracy and is the only press brake that introduces no angle errors, the company reports. At the press of a button the machine determines and generates the bending sequence, backstop positioning, tool plan, and process data.
