Bystronic has introduced a newly developed range of press brakes that can be customised to suit a user’s requirements in terms of process speed and flexibility. Available in the UK through the Swiss manufacturer’s Coventry subsidiary, the modular Xpert Pro series comprises three models, plus a variety of optional extras.
First up is the Classic Edition, which is intended for prototype manufacture and job shops producing small batch sizes. Next is the Performance Edition for medium-sized companies that want to produce parts in larger series, while the third model, the Dynamic Edition, is suitable for companies needing even more speed to handle batch sizes of 1000 parts or more. Bystronic says the machines will be among the fastest on the market, with bend speeds up to 20 mm/sec.
Capacity ranges from 100 to 320 tons, enabling sheet up to 15 mm thick to be processed, while bending length is either 3 or 4 m. Companies that require even more flexibility can connect two machines together to bend longer parts.
Due to the variety of configuration options, application possibilities are extensive and an Xpert Pro can be flexibly adapted to new requirements through straightforward retrofitting of optional modules.
Fabricators that have already invested money in bending tools want to reuse them when they purchase a new press brake, but this is not usually possible when changing supplier as there are almost a dozen different tool systems on the market that are incompatible with each other. However, this problem has
been solved by the Xpert Pro range as the machines have been designed so that tool systems from other suppliers
can be used.
