Bystronic’s (Hoffman Estates, IL) Xpert Pro series is a high-end bending line designed around flexibility. There are three models of the Xpert Pro: the Classic model is ideal for job shops with small batch sizes or for prototype builders. The Performance model is suited for medium-sized companies to produce larger lots quickly and reliably. The Dynamic model is designed for companies that need even more speed to efficiently handle batch sizes of 1,000 pieces or more, providing bending speeds up to ¾ inch per second.
The series features a press capacity range from 110 U.S. tons to 320 U.S. tons and can be adapted to a wide range of requirements, enabling materials up to a thickness of ⅝ inch to be bent with ease. The series comes with bending lengths of either 10 or 13 feet.
The Xpert Pro uses Dynamic Crowning to improve precision and consistency. This system automatically adjusts the curvature of the lower beam during the bending process and reacts to part bend length, material characteristics, and part position on the table. For even higher process flexibility, the LAMS angle measuring system is available as an option to compensate for varying material characteristics and rolling grain direction variations.
The system eliminates bending tool compatibility issues and is designed with an open tool clamping system that can accommodate tools from other suppliers. It features a stroke of 250 or 450 mm and an open height of 840 or 640 mm depending on the model. The Xpert Pro uses Bystronic’s ByVision Bending software to determine the ideal bending process for every material thickness and bending angle.
