Autogauge G48 – 48″ Travel Plate Backgauge for heavy forming

G48 - 48" Travel Plate Backgauge for heavy formingTHE G48 AUTOGAUGE IS A 48″ TRAVEL PLATE BACKGAUGE THAT PROVIDES EXTRA SAVINGS BECAUSE HANDLING PLATE IS MORE LABOR INTENSIVE THAN SHEET METAL

The G48 Autogauge backgauge offers significant productivity improvement because handling larger, heavier workpieces often involves 2 or more operators and material handling equipment. Although these handling methods may still be employed, once the workpiece is maneuvered to the bending die it can be sequenced through the bends as the backgauge repositions on each ram cycle.

TIME SAVINGS EVEN ON SINGLE-BEND WORKPIECES

Considerable time is involved setting a manual backstop for a solitary bend on plate. The stop must be very rigid and making changes on such a bulky apparatus is time-consuming. Some operators resort to layout and scribing which is equally time-consuming. The G48 48″ Travel Plate Backgauge lets the operator punch in the dimension and bend in seconds.
