P2 - Flexible bending solution
MAC3.0 detects any differences in the mechanical characteristics of the material compared to their nominal value during the cycle, adapting the movements of the bending unit and the manipulator to compensate them. Compensation is automatic if the ratio between the bending force required for the material actually being processed and that required for the material expected (Kσ) is between 0.75 and 1.25. In this case, the panel bender guarantees a constant bending angle and the correct dimension of flanges and boxes. If Kσ exceeds this range but not the maximum value (2), the operator can quickly extend the field of application of MAC3.0 by defining a new material. For values beyond the maximum threshold (2), the bending process is interrupted automatically.
A digital indicator integrated in FACE monitors the situation in real time, informing the operator of the actual characteristics of the material being machined.
