Advances in technology reduce set-up and turnaround times

Amada-preview-edit_tmbExhibiting once again at Northern Manufacturing & Electronics, Amada will show advances in both standalone press brake technology, automated press brake technology and supporting software, that have “vastly reduced” daily set-up times, with rapid turnaround between jobs.

Built on the solid foundation of the HFE series, the HFE3i 1003 press brake includes additional production-enhancing features and an innovative touch-screen AMNC 3i interface. An 18.5-inch multi-touch display offers multiple modes of data entry (angle, depth, 2D and 3D) for programming flexibility. A user-friendly graphic interface and tool library assist operators in the quick set-up of complicated parts.

Also on the stand will be the HG-ATC. The company engineered this for variable lot sizes and difficult tool layouts. The automatic tool changer (ATC) can load even the most complex tool layout within three minutes, and allows operators of varied experience levels to efficiently use this bending system.

The company’s software meets challenges of today’s global environment, where companies are facing the competitive challenge of analysing and converting engineering data into business-critical information for a faster time to market. The software enables customers to collect and easily access large volumes of data. There is a suite of software products available that is integrated and focused on applications for the sheet metal industry.
