CoastOne Electric Press Brakes

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 >>

Backgauging Systems

Our backgauge systems consist of a programmable control where the operator enters a dimension and a motorized gauging mechanism automatically moves through a sequence of programmed dimensions. 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 >>

Control Upgrades

Backgauge Control Upgrades are a cost-effective way to continue using your existing press brake system. Automec can provide Backguage controls to communicate with your existing backgauge, ram, and additional axes. Most companies find that the cost of retrofitting a press brake is significantly less expensive than a full replacement.  Read more >>

Front Gauge for Shear

Studies show that the majority of shearing time is consumed in set-up…not shearing. Our Squaregage Front Gauge Control System reduces that set-up time and increases shear productivity, especially when accurate square blanks are required. Read More >>

Shearfeed Systems

The PS 50 Autofeed is a programmable feeding device for shears. It grips the workpiece with pneumatic fingers, feeds the piece into the shear with precision movements and fires the shear when in position. The common application is reshearing multiple patterns created on a CNC punch but it can also be used for cutting strips of material.  Read More >>
