Used CNC Press Brakes, Bending Cells, Bending and Forming Machines
Press brakes are pressing tools designed for bending and forming, usually set up for sheet metal operations. Modern press brakes range in capability from a simple ram with a tool and die set; to CNC controlled Precision press brake models. The high-end precision models can be equipped with CNC controls, CNC backgauges with multiple axes, CNC crowning, hydraulic clamping and programmable sheet followers. Drive systems have also advanced with the older mechanical designs being replaced by hydraulic rams, then electric servo and hybrid hydraulic-servo systems. Popular brands include Accurpress, Amada, Bystronic, Cincinnati and Trumpf. Although press brakes are the most popular and versatile solution for precision sheet metal forming. Other options exist for more specialized bending and forming operations. Options such as folding machines like Ras and panel forming systems like Salvagnini and Prima Power. In recent years the quest for greater productivity have led to the development of automated bending cells utilizing automatic tool changers, robots and loading and unloading systems.
