Bystronic (Hoffman Estates, IL) introduces the Modular Tool Changer for the Xpert Pro series press brake. The Modular Tool Changer can lift tools with a weight of up to 55 lbs. and offers a maximum application variety: bottom tools of up to V120 (4.72 in.) in width and top tools with a height of up to 350 mm (13.77 in.) can be used. Additional features include:
- 180-degree rotation capabilities for the top tool;
- intelligent sensors which automatically sort tools and integrate them into the magazine with their positions stored in the rack; and
- a compressed-air cleaning nozzle which removes contaminants and cleans the bending table.
Bystronic reports an increase of up to 30% in available bending time by eliminating manual press brake set-ups, benefitting shops with smaller batch sizes and frequent set-ups. The Modular Tool Changer can be adapted at any time to an Xpert Pro, given the proper machine specifications.
