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 difference in the tensile strength of the incoming material is between 0.75 and 1.25 of that expected, thus guaranteeing a constant bending angle and the correct dimension of flanges and boxes. If the difference exceeds this range but not the maximum value (2), the operator can 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.
