Automec CNC 9×9 – 9 Bend Backgauge Control System

CNC 9 bend backgauge controlThe CNC 9×9 is a simple-to-use 9 bend backgauge control, single axis system with IN/MM conversion and bend allowance. CNC 9×9 backgauge control was developed as a low cost solution to be used with Automec’s series of backgauges for press brakes. The 9 bend backgauge control carries a 2 year warranty.



The CNC 9×9 coupled with the Autogauge series of Automec backgauge give the user an economical solution for single axis backgauge applications. The system can be used for single bend “go to” positioning or a sequence of up to 9 bends with up to 9 repeats of identical bends can be programmed. The CNC 9×9 retains the same speed, accuracy, and repeatability as provided by Automec’s higher end controls at a more affordable price.

The system features bend allowance and inch/ mm conversion. CNC 9×9 was developed as a low-cost solution to be used with Automec’s Autogauge line and can be ordered with most Automec backgauges.
