Press Brake Tending with Robots

Increase productivity, safety, and flexibility with robotic press brake tending.

Press brake machines and articulated robots are a study in opposites. While press brakes are large, guillotine-style machines designed for bending sheet metal and other materials, robots are slim, compact, and capable of great application flexibility. But this unusual match generates incredible results.

Safety:
Robotic press brake tending solutions are inherently safer. Employees are no longer in danger of injury either from the press brake machine directly or in association with it. Feeding a press brake machine can involve repetitive movement strain and heavy lifting, but robots eliminate these hazards.

Productivity:
Robots are fully repeatable and safeguarded, so the press brake machine can be run constantly at top speed. This increases throughput considerably. Furthermore, a robot can tend multiple press brake machines, conveyors, and pallet stations, when it is placed on a rotating base or sliding track.

Flexibility:
Robots are flexible both in their construction and capabilities. Their dexterity, repeatability, and speed are well-suited for material handling / machine tending jobs such as this. Robotic EOAT (typically grippers) can easily accommodate different sized parts, leading to even greater productivity.
