The Schröder IntelliBend Series Bi-Directional Folder
Intelligence. It’s the only way to describe the IntelliBend Bi-Directional folding system that literally raises the level of part production achievable on your shop floor. Not only is this machine inherently intelligent, but it was designed based on real world needs, for the most competitive manufacturing environment in history.
What would you call a machine that could bend virtually any precision part, without having to flip the blank, and by eliminating the flip, make three bends in the time you normally would make only one? Intelligent.
What would you call a machine that could program the most complex part geometries on-line or off, actually see the part in 3-D animation, and allow the operator to work from the back of the machine the way folders are designed to do? Intelligent.
What would you call a machine that came standard with hydraulic tool clamping, and rotational tooling beams which hold a second set of tools for instant changeover, for even more flexibility and productivity? Intelligent.
“U” CAN GAUGE INTELLIGENCETo achieve the level of flexibility and ergonomics the IntelliBend attains, a ‘U’ shaped backgauge is a must, and is standard on the IntelliBend.
Without the most sophisticated gauging in the world, achieving perfection in precision, complex geometric shapes, is impossible. SCHRÖDER has built the IntelliBend with the finest gauging in the on earth, including twin ball-screw drives, steel or nylon ball transfers, solid gauging rails, and pop-up stops, make handling even the largest parts a pleasure.
Whether it be large panels or rectangular parts, the operator has virtually the perfect ergonomic support system surrounding him. By “skipping the flip” with the IntelliBend UP-DOWN folder, the operator can bend virtually all your parts from the rear of the machine and can increase your output production rate, eliminate the fatigue and time associated with flipping often clumsy and heavy metal blanks, and thus give you a significant forming advantage. Very fast, very intelligent.
INTELLIGENCE IN TOOLING
As the world's most intelligent designers of standard and specialty tooling, SCHRÖDER has blended both the art and the science of the latest tool design and flexibility into the IntelliBend. With dozens of standard shapes, and a virtual endless custom specialty design capability, the end result is a universal set of clamping beam, folding beam and lower beam tooling, with the geometric flexibility to cover all of your forming needs.
Even more intelligent, the IntelliBend also comes standard with hydraulic clamping for the ultimate compliment to the inherent precision and productivity oriented design of the machine. Anything less would be inappropriate on an UP-DOWN machine so incredibly productive.
If you know metal folding, you also know that the combination of all three sets of tools, working in perfect harmony is what produces the long term production gains that folding brings to the production sequence.
Being as intelligent as it is, the IntelliBend also comes standard with the innovative, and highly productive rotational clamping beam built into the system itself. Imagine being able to shift from one set of universal tools to another, on the fly! Again, intelligence in design to streamline part production without interruption.
INTELLIGENT 3D CONTROL
If you are a control enthusiast, chances are you are very picky about wanting the most sophisticated and technologically advanced control, with the utmost in flexibility and productivity, yet with the intuitive simplicity of operation that allows anyone to produce precision parts, at any quantity, at incredible rates of production.
Presenting the SCHRÖDER POS 3000 Control System. This system is fully networkable, and through a direct internet connection, you have our support whenever you need it!
Ten axes of precision are effortlessly positioned with the speed and accuracy even the most discerning of control enthusiasts will admire. On-line or off, with true 3-D animation, there is no simpler, nor more sophisticated method of programming a machine to produce geometrically complex end product, and then reproduce it to perfect accuracy every time you run it. Period.
And, coming soon will be the ability to program directly off of CAD files, for even more intelligent part programming and part productivity.
ROTATIONAL CLAMPING BEAM… VERY INTELLIGENT!How much would it be worth to you to have two separate sets of tooling available, with instantaneous rollover, 24/7? That’s a whopping 20 feet of precision tooling available in any configuration, sharp nose, or radii, and any height, at your fingertips.
It’s the Rotational Clamping Beam, just another in a long line of the IntelliBend’s evolution, that becomes your secret to incredible productivity gains, enormous expansion in your part geometry capabilities, and a value add that actually adds profit dollars to the bottom line.
This evolutionary advantage in machine flexibility and virtual elimination of set up time, would position your forming department as one of the most productive in the world!
If you want to out think, out perform and out produce your competition, you can look, but you won’t find another folding system like the IntelliBend.
