The new Xpert Tool Changer’s integrated 6 axis robot and internal tool storage enables operators to quickly change tooling while conducting additional job preparations. It has been developed for users who want to save set-up time and increase productivity. The beauty of robot operations lies not only in the consistency, efficiency, safety and throughput levels, but also in the ability of the operators responsible for these systems to multi-task and save valuable production time.
The Xpert press brake offers a bending length of 10 feet and a press capacity range from 165 to 350 US tons. Intelligent bending process control and fully automatic crowning enable a wide variety of parts to be bent with maximum repetition accuracy. With the Xpert press brake and the integrated Tool Changer system, the process step that plays a crucial role in enabling users to bend parts quickly and with a consistently high level of quality is now automated.
Multi-tasking reduces set-up time on press brakes
Press brake automation is more than just robot press brake tending. Press brake automation can also include the application of a robot contained within the back side of the press brake housing that automatically sets-up the tools for each job. The beauty of robot operations lies not only in the consistency, efficiency, safety and throughput levels, but also in the ability of the operators responsible for these systems to multi-task.
