New bending press

Precise bending for flexible requirements
Since July, the bending area at BVS Blechtechnik has included a total of 14 machines. On the latest NC-controlled press brake, the specialists will produce versatile bending parts even more effectively in the future. Whether small or large formats, simple or complex components – the new press brake is ideally suited to the wide range of products at BVS Blechtechnik. Its optimised control system with its simple operation enables rapid and high-precision bending.

The HG-1003 press brake from Amada was installed at the end of June. In close cooperation, the machine manufacturer built the system especially for the needs of BVS and subsequently added it to Amada’s product range as a series machine. The fast programming system, the easy to operate AMNC 3i control and the high opening width are the big plus points of the new acquisition. The machine operator calls up the program data calculated via offline programming on the user-friendly multi-touch LCD panel and receives all bending information at a glance. The bending sequence, the set-up plan and the detailed bending process are displayed intuitively for processing.

The Amada technicians took the wish for a large press beam opening and an automatically movable foot pedal into account when configuring the machine. Thanks to the high opening width of 650 mm, large box dimensions for large bent parts are now possible. In the past, these had to be realized partly by welding. This saves time and offers flexible use for the widely varying bending jobs at BVS. The automatically movable foot pedal also shortens the processing time and is extremely ergonomic. The operating unit thus automatically moves to the next bending position where the respective tool is available for the next bending operation. The hybrid drive system guarantees a highly precise bending result independent of bending length and position.

Whether using this new hybrid press brake, the automatic bending robots or the semi-automatic swivel bending machine – at BVS Blechtechnik we find the optimum bending process for individual sheet metal products for every application.
