The HRB Series of press brakes offer a variety of bending technology and production features that can be customized to resolve specific manufacturing challenges. For example, Bend Indicator Sensors ensure accurate bend angles without the need for test bends, and the HRB’s crowning system provides consistent angle accuracy across the entire bend length. AGRIP-A punch holders lock tooling into the appropriate position to reduce setup time by up to 60%, according to the firm.
Adding a Sheet Follower system is designed for safe and efficient processing and material handling of large parts. An automatic foot pedal moves to the proper position throughout production. Inclusion of a double clamp backgauge provides accurate processing of complex shapes.
The addition of the Automatic Tool Changer (ATC) makes it possible to achieve even the most complex tool setups in four minutes or less. The ATC is designed for variable lot sizes, complex tool layouts, and the introduction of rush jobs. In addition, operators of varied experience levels can produce repeatable high-speed bending results.
