Amada HRB 1003 hybrid drive press brake includes double-clamp backgauge

Amada has introduced the HRB series of press brakes with automatic tool changer. New features include a double-clamp backgauge for stable processing of complex material shapes, as well as a natural crowning design to help ensure a consistent angle across the entire bend length.

A bend indicator sensor helps ensure accuracy for stable processing without a trial bend. AGRIP-A punch holders lock via AMNC3i control to reduce setup time by 60%, says the company.

In addition, custom sheet followers (SF1224TL) help prevent distortion on heavy workloads and support the material throughout the bending process. The automatic foot pedal slides to the next bending position to help improve efficiency.

The Hybrid Retrofittable Bending (HRB) series of press brakes feature automated tool change (ATC) capabilities and integrated bend sensors. They are designed for variable lot sizes and complex tool layouts. Quick tool setups achieved by ATC can triple or quadruple the number of setups performed each day and allow an operator to seamlessly introduce rush jobs when required.
