We’ve recently installed a multi-axis Amada press brake with 4 meter bending length capabilities and a maximum force of 220 tonnes. As well as the ability to programme offline, the press brake also boasts an automatic crowning system which allows for the automatic compensation of deflection during the bending cycle and ensures that the produced bend angle is constant along the bend length.
Manufacturing Engineer, Nichola Meagher: “It has been a great investment. With a multi-axis capability it allows us to fold numerous jobs of any complexity with minimum set-ups. This increases the efficiency which in-turn allows us to take on more projects as throughput is increased.”
Currently the press brake is being used in the production of radiator housings for Modine Manufacturing Company, a variety of parts for the Morgan 3-wheeler, and fuel tanks for various vehicles.
