Compact, portable, high-speed bending

Compact, portable, high-speed bending

  • Imagine being able to move your press brake production to where you need it, when you need it.
  • Imagine your press brake production flow without interruption
  • Imagine increasing your bending capabilities for more complex parts
  • Imagine simply producing more parts per minute
  • Imagine obtaining higher production rates at the same time reducing operator fatigue
  • Imagine reducing your learning curve to nearly zero 
  • Imagine a press brake that embraces quality as a standard feature

Compact, mobile press brakes bend small to medium-size parts with high-speed precision

For many users, bending requires manufacturing small to medium-sized parts using press brakes that are too big for the job. For parts up to a bending length of approximately 5 feet and a maximum thickness of ¾ of an inch, these users do not really need a large-scale bending machine, but a small and versatile powerhouse. 

Xpert 40 press brake

To satisfy the increasing demand for high-speed, mobile bending systems, Bystronic introduced the Xpert 40 high-speed press brake with a compact format that fits into virtually any manufacturing environment.  With a press capacity of 44 US tons and overall bending length of 40.5 in. Xpert 40 is movable to where it's needed, when it's needed with set-up in under five min.  ByMotion drive control, a Bystronic development, ensures that the upper beam and back gauges are accelerated with high precision. The results are bending processes with the highest levels of repetition accuracy and speed. 

Xpert 80 press brake

The great success of the Xpert 40 press brake showed that there is a demand among users for fast, but also mobile bending systems. The new Xpert 80 offers a decisive increase in bending length (60 in.) and press capacity (88 US tons). Xpert 80 provides users with support for flexible job shop production with fluctuating batch sizes and varying bent parts as well as for series production with recurring parts.

Fast bending speeds up one inch per second enable users to bend three times as many parts with the compact machine compared to a slower, large press brake. 

Benefits: Profit through speed and efficiency

  • Advanced machine design delivers high levels of dynamics
  • ByMotion drive control system ensures finely tuned interplay between speed, precision and power 
  • Process-controlled drive unit reduces power consumption by up to 30% 
  • Powerful ByVision control with 22-in HD touch screen interface
  • OPC UA Interface provides an important basis to increase the degree of utilization and efficiency of the cutting system
  • Back gauge and ram speeds ensure highest process efficiency to keep pace with today's high-speed Fiber laser cutters
  • Flexible tool selection and a press capacities of up to 44 or 88 US tons offer a wide range of applications from thin and thicker material
  • Fast Bend E safety system for intelligent visual point of operation guarding
  • Entire set-up and production from one single station significantly reduces non-productive bending time.

Mobile robot automation meets high-speed bending 

Bystronic takes the next evolutionary step in the field of bending by seamlessly interfacing a high-speed brake press with mobile robot automation. The result is a compact solution for automated as well as manual operation that supports today's fluctuating lot sizes and varying part complexities.

Benefits: 

  • Manual bending on demand of small lot sizes and individual parts with varying shapes quickly and efficiently.
  • Cost-effective automated bending of large lot sizes by night.
  • Mobile bending cell functions according to the "Plug-in and Bend" principle.
  • All bending and automation workflows are controlled on a single, 22-in HD touch screen.
  • Control is seamlessly integrated into the press brake user interface.
  • Mobile bending cell can be set up and operated in virtually environment in just a few minutes. When not being used, simply push the mobile bending cell to one side.
