Faster, and More Precise Bending Technology

The ByBend Smart from Bystronic offers enhanced bending technology and new functions. Bystronic designed this press brake to offer a performance package with intelligent functions that enable users to produce parts in high quality and at low cost.

One of the ByBend Smart's flexibility-enhancing features is the Daylight and Stroke Expansion. This feature, which is available with the purchase of a new machine, extends the daylight and stroke from 18.9" to 22.9". The additional 3.94" boosts the ByBend Smart's flexibility by as much as 30% because it can use taller tools, enabling users to produce parts with taller bending sides. This is particularly useful when bending boxes and drawers.

"The Efficiency Booster option increases not only the bending speed, but also the ram retract speed by up to 20% over conventional ram retract speeds. With the Energy Saver option, the machine's main drive is only active when the machine is actually in operation, reducing energy consumption by 40%," said a company spokesperson.

The Fast Bend M Safety System option consists of a laser safety system that allows the upper beam to move almost all the way to the part that is being processed at the rapid movement speed. The high-precision laser sensor allows the ByBend Smart's control to reduce the upper beam's speed from up to 7.0" per second (rapid movement speed) to 0.74" per second (bending speed) just before reaching the metal sheet. The laser safety system functions like an intelligent brake assistant that permits the machine to move at a higher speed for longer. This offers users a speed advantage of up to 30%.

During the bending process, the Electric Lifting Aid option increases material handling flexibility and operator ergonomics for large parts up to 220 lbs. per unit. The control synchronizes the movement of the lifting aids with the actual bending process and the vertical movement of the upper beam.

The ByVision Bending control system is included in the ByBend Smart's basic version. Operators launch all the bending processes with just a few swipes of the finger on a 22" touch screen. ByVision Bending has an extensive database that includes the parameters for all the common types of sheet metal and bending tools. Depending on the material thickness and bending angle, the user interface determines the ideal bending process and suggests the suitable tools.

The Active Hydraulic Crowning feature provides high-precision air bending results. This function is only available in this form with press brakes from Bystronic. Due to its accurate pressure sensors, the control recognizes the parts length and position as well as other material properties. The ByVision Bending control enables the ByBend Smart to automatically provide the ideal distribution of the bending force across the entire bending length without requiring the operator to deal with complicated details. This results in precise and consistent angles across the entire bending length.
