New Robotic Press Brake Enhances Performance
CoastOne electric press brakes now use robotic integration to automate the bending process and increase productivity and quality.
The CoastOne RoboCone is a modular robotic press brake. Robotic integration allows robots to operate press brakes automatically, without human intervention.
The RoboCone can load and unload parts, rotate and flip them, and perform quality control and sorting. It can also communicate with the press brake controller and adjust the bending parameters accordingly.
Robotic Integration Available for All CoastOne Press Brakes
All the CoastOne press brakes now allow for a robot interface – either a collaborative robot, or a fully automated robot cell. CoastOne machines include the following:
The smallest “fully electric,” servo-driven press brakes found in the CoastOne press brake line are ideal for bending smaller parts. The C-Series small press brakes feature one to two ball screws using a “direct drive system” to administer force. Each ball screw is capable of producing about 25 tons of force.
The G-Series machines feature an “O-Frame,” as opposed to the “C-Frame” found in smaller machines. The “O-Frame” deflects less than the “C-Frame” which is very useful for the higher tonnage and longer bed length machines. The G-Series is ideal for longer bending requirements and features three ball screws that crown and bend simultaneously.
Benefits of Robotic Integration with Electric Press Brakes
Robotic integration with electric press brakes can offer several advantages over manual bending operations, such as:
Robotic Press Brakes: The Best Applications
Robotic integration with electric press brakes can be applied to various production scenarios in the industry:
Large-Volume and Repetitive Tasks
Automate bending operations that involve a large number of identical or similar parts, reducing manual labor and increasing efficiency.
Small-Batch and Frequent Tasks
Automate bending operations that involve a small number of different parts that occur frequently, reducing setup and changeover times and increasing flexibility.
Extra-Large and Heavy Tasks
Assist bending operations that involve extra-large or heavy parts that require two or more people to lift or manipulate, reducing physical strain and improving safety.
