Bending sequences

Bending up and down

The RAS UpDownBend bends up and down. With its height axis the folding beam can pass already bent flanges with a length of 150 mm.

  • No material flipping needed
  • Easy and fast operation
  • Short cycle times

Telescopic gauging system

The unique telescopic gauging system automatically adjusts to the actual bending situation.

Telescope pushed together:

  • Bending of small / narrow parts
  • Operation close to the bend line
  • Ergonomic working position

Telescope pulled out:

  • Bending of large parts
  • Part weight fully supported
  • Power saving operation

Straight bends

The UpDownBend uses the RAS patented beam-in-beam design. With this design the folding beam almost does not deflect when loaded by the bending force.

  • Straight bend without a need for adjustments
  • No crowning system needed
  • Additional use: folding beam can be used as a stop
  • Bending of inclined blanks

Variety of tools

Ideally, all parts can be bent with a single set of tools. Which tool suits best depends on the box height, the material thickness and the tool geometry requirement.

  • Upper beam tools with/without heel
  • Tool set with basic segments, adapters and corner tools
  • Upper beam tools up to 300 mm in height
  • Folding beam tools for different Z dimensions

Universal machine control

The control can be supplied built in a moveable console or for optimized accessibility or for maximum access added to a swivel arm. The workshop-oriented programming software includes a large range of functions.

  • Drawing the shape of the part with the finger
  • Usually program will be automatically created
  • Technological tables (angle correction / blank calculation)
  • Software shows program, finished part and  actual bending step
  • Program library
  • Operator instructions (text and icons)
