Press brakes help eliminate test bending

October 12, 2004

The PR Plus system option is now standard on the full range of Bystronic Inc.'s PR Series press brakes. The technology measures material thickness and length and provides compensation for the effects of grain direction and material springback. The company says the PR Plus option helps to eliminate test bending, checking, adjusting, and re-bending.

All PR Series press brakes also feature the Pressure Reference system, which is designed to provide accurate, first-time bends regardless of contact irregularities. The system maintains high control over the variables that affect bending performance and accuracy.
