Automec, Inc. is a Certified USA Dealer of CoastOne electric press brakes. (servo-electric) Automec handles sales and service for customers in the U.S, as they have been with their back gauge systems for the last 47 years. CoastOne electric press brakes are becoming the future of press brake technology. The technology behind the CoastOne electric press brake is the “direct-drive system,” which uses servo motors directly tied to ball screws to administer force. This capability, in turn, offers an extreme accuracy of 0.000079 inches! By the term, “servo-electric,” it may seem hard to believe that these machines conserve more electricity than traditional hydraulic press brakes. However, CoastOne servo - electric press brakes are not running hydraulic pumps and heating fluids all day. These electric press brakes only use energy when in motion and conserve the energy otherwise. Read more >>

Our systems also offer program-ability of the ram for many pressbrakes. They can offer programmable "top of stroke," "slow speed," and "bottom of stroke." Our systems can be retrofitted to existing pressbrakes, shears, and punches.  Read more >>

Backgauge Control Upgrades are a cost-effective way to continue using your existing press brake system.
