Press brakes offer linear-motor-drive backgaugeMarch, 30 2007
Cincinnati’s new high-speed MAXFORM hydraulic press brakes are now available with a linear-motor-drive backgage as an option .
The six-axis backgage uses a linear motor drive to deliver re-positioning speeds of 3,000 ipm in X (in/out) and Z (left/right) axes. The high-speed positioning eliminates resets waiting time for extremely fast sequential bending of complex parts resulting in more strokes per hour and parts per shift. The six-axis backgage uses ballscrew drive in R (up-down) axis where changes are infrequent. The breakthrough backgage complements the MAXFORM’s speed machine capabilities. Advanced hydraulics and control technologies deliver up to 700 ipm ram speeds with 3 Sigma (plus or minus 0.0002 in.) repeatability for high consistency in bending complex parts without deviation, drift or error stacking.
