You can achieve any type of automation by using press brakes in tandem or stand-alone press brakes. In fact, automation may even be achieved more easily through using two or more press brakes in tandem, rather than using one large press brake. The smaller the press brake, the more easily precision is achieved. Several factors you may want consider when employing tandem press brakes for your automation needs include:
- Tandem press brakes offer more versatility than using just one larger press brake. Each press brake can be used separately for later projects or when one of the two press brakes is experiencing problems. You can drastically reduce downtime and increase production by using two or more press brakes in tandem. When you complete the project for which you are using press brakes in tandem, you can use them individually, in tandem, or for doing two separate jobs at the same time. This reduces the cost of future projects.
- Using press brakes in tandem for robotic automation is ideal particularly for large batch projects. While smaller batch projects may be better suited on other machines, any larger-scope application can be completed with precision through the use of any number of press brakes in tandem.
- Utilizing press brakes in tandem for any type of automation application increases worker safety and production quality by reducing material handling hazards and human error. Additionally, press brakes can be programmed to achieve virtually any type of automation for your desired application. This can be achieved by using stand-alone press brakes or press brakes in tandem. High precision projects are easily completed with appropriate programming of your press brake control.
