With models varying in capacity from 55 to 600 tons, Amada's new HD NT press brake series can handle applications in bend lengths from 79 to 276 in.
This series features a hybrid drive system that is engineered for low energy consumption and requires less hydraulic fluid than conventional machines, the company claims. It maintains a repeatability rate of ±0.00004 in.
Available on most models, the company's patented variable slit crowning feature helps ensure consistent angle accuracy. Larger models are equipped with an autocrowning feature that uses calculations created by the AMNC-PC control.
Additional features include a high-speed, high-precision bending sensor that eliminates test bends; increased distance between tooling and greater stroke length to provide a large processing area; an expanded processing area for deep-box bending; and increased distance between the punch and die, allowing for simplified processing of heavy materials.
