For both specialized sheet metal bending and fully automated production work, press brakes must deliver precisely positioned, high-quality bends in a variety of shapes without damaging the material.
Differentiate Your Machine
To form complex parts with multiple bends, today’s advanced,
computer-controlled brake systems are capable of precise multi-axis motion with
real-time feedback for accurate control of positioning and press stroke. Simpler
bending stations with less complicated motion requirements also need the
ability to apply extreme force at a controlled rate, with total accuracy.
Today’s original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are looking
to differentiate by enabling sophisticated bending capabilities with precise
control, higher throughput, lower energy consumption and improved operator
safety. Powerful, accurate, efficient motion plays a leading role in all these
That’s why manufacturers are increasingly turning from the
hydraulic systems of the past to direct-drive servo technology or hybrid systems
to achieve the power and control their customers are looking for.
Controlled, Dynamic Motion for Greater Productivity
Our servo solutions have delivered higher power, control and
efficiency to OEMs in the material forming industry for more than 70 years, and
in the past two decades we’ve helped innovative press brake OEMs lead the
industry from hydraulic to energy-efficient servo systems that are more
compact, easier to maintain, quieter and safer.
These systems also offer highly dynamic motion with
fine-tuned control to optimize forming processes for speed and quality.
Efficient acceleration, positioning and torque across each axis of motion allows
designers to achieve greater precision and repeatability while streamlining
each operation for faster production.
Realize Your Potential
We supply the widest range of direct drive servo technologies, with standard products and co-engineered modifications to meet virtually any performance specification. We even offer drives with enhanced Motion Safety to help operators work productively with confidence. And we bring the motion expertise that only Kollmorgen can offer to help realize your machine’s full potential while lowering energy, maintenance and operational costs.
