In production, the form, size, and number of parts that are to be bent varies. A central goal is to produce these parts as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. A modern bending system will have to adapt, automate as many processing steps as possible, yet also provide the possibility to work manually.
The technology behind the Mobile Bending Cell is the Xpert 40, which together with bending robotics, combines fast press brake and mobile automation. Users can process large series with the automatic bending mode, and also manually bend small series and individual parts whenever necessary.
It functions according to the plug-and-bend principle. In practice, this means: the compact Xpert 40 can be set up and operate in virtually any environment, and also quickly be moved to another location. The mobile automation solution seamlessly interfaces with the Xpert 40. Users can set up the robotics system on the Xpert 40 in just a few minutes, says the company. When not in use, the bending robotics can simply be moved to one side.
