As of now, ByVision Bending, the user interface for Bystronic press brakes, can also be installed on Windows tablet computers. Users are now able to access the processes and manufacturing details of press brakes and discuss them with customers, around the clock and regardless of location. The tablet version includes ByVision Bending’s full range of functions.
New with voice control
In a related development, Bystronic says it has also added voice control to ByVision Bending. With this feature, the most important operations on Bystronic press brakes can be executed by voice command. On average, the operator spends two hours per shift carrying out corrections on press brake control units, says Bystronic. However, with voice control, operators can reduce this non-productive time. Voice control is available in English and German for Hämmerle, Xpert and Xcite press brakes.
BendSolver – New for smartphones and tablet computers
Bystronic offers a new version of BendSolver for smartphones and tablet computers. BendSolver automatically determines the optimal tools and machine parameters for each bending order. In order to accomplish this, the program accesses a database containing roughly 2000 tool entries. In addition, the user can extend the database with his own tool entries whenever he wishes. Subsequently, the required tools can be obtained in a fast and simple manner with the Bystronic Configurator, which is closely linked to BendSolver.
BendSolver comes with a user-friendly interface and is available in 17 languages.
