Modular, Automatic Bending Cell Adapts to Sheet Metal Fabricators’ Needs

Bystronic has enhanced the Xpert Pro press brake to create a fully automatic bending cell that offers efficiency and flexibility for small and large manufacturing companies. The modular design allows the bending cell to be adapted to the user’s requirements, and it is suitable both for processing long job lists and for changing orders—from small batch sizes to large series.

While the 7-axis robot autonomously changes the grippers and bending tools, the intelligent software autonomously determines the optimal sequence of the bending tools for every job list, saving up to 30% of the processing time, according to the manufacturer.

After initial offline programming, the cell operates autonomously, allowing operators to perform other tasks, such as supplying and removing sheet metal and parts or operating a laser cutting system or welding system.
