This panel bending machine bends the blanks up and down, automatically creates the part programs and sets up the tools with an automatic tool changer.

Panel Bending Machine for Bending Switchgear Cabinets

At the Telford factory of Proteus Switchgear, throughput of bent sheet metal components is just as high using a FLEXIbend folding machine as it was when the company was using a fully automated panel bender. Proteus' folding machine does not bend faster, but the change over from one job to another is much faster and more flexible. In addition, the FLEXIbend also can bend smaller switchgear components in small to medium batches. Typical runs are from 10 to 20 and occasionally up to 50-off.

Panel Bending Machine Bends Small Parts for Server Rack

The company Triton from Pardubice in the Czech Republic is a manufacturer of data cabinets, power distribution systems, and wardrobe lockers. Customers can design their own cabinets using the Triton product configurator. As a result, production and machine flexibility need to be extremely high. The RAS MiniBendCenter bends small parts up to 600 x 600 mm in small to medium batch sizes. An optical scanner automatically finds the blanks on the pallet. Fed with this data, a robot loads the small-part into the bending center. After the automatic bending process is completed, the finished parts can be automatically delivered to different boxes. After one job is completed the tool changer automatically prepares the machine for the next job.

Bending Outdoor Distribution Cabinets Using RAS Panel Bending Machine
