RapidBend Plus technology employs a high speed progressive muting process that enables performance press brakes to close safely at high speed until the tool opening is only 2mm. This reduces the slow speed travel distance to significantly enhance machine productivity. RapidBend Plus is compatible with most high speed performance CNC press brakes* and in comparison to other light or laser based systems, RapidBend Plus can reduce machine cycle time by more than two seconds per cycle. This represents a significant saving in operating time and cost.
*For retrofit applications RapidBend Plus compatibility is dependent on machine type and is optimised for high speed performance press brakes.
AutoSense is an automatic monitoring technology that tracks machine operation and performance in real time. AutoSense automatically monitors control commands, motion, direction, speed and stopping performance to maintain a high level of machine and operator protection. AutoSense also guarantees compliance with international safety standards that mandate automatic monitoring of machine overrun and safe speed.
BendShield technology provides advanced optical protection by enveloping the punch tip with a protective field that has no gaps. BendShield has an object detection resolution of 2mm to detect even the smallest obstruction from any angle. Optical protection remains active until the tool opening is reduced to 2mm preventing fingers and hands entering the point of operation.
