NEW Automated Folding Center

RAS UpDown Center

The RAS UpDown Center a semi-automated bending center for panels and boxes up to 126" in length, 0.1" thickness and 9.8" box height. Besides the up and down folding capability and the automatic tool change, the true highlight of the machine is the automatic programming feature. After the blank is squared, suction cups of the PosLift gauging system take over the part. Up to 132 suction cups position the workpiece for each bend.

 

The UpDown Center forms the sheet up and down, so the machine finishes one side of the part before the operator turns the blank to the next side. The tool changer is not only fast, but also extremely flexible. The two gripper arms take the tool segments from the tool magazine and places them within one-hundredth of a millimeter accuracy in the automatic upper beam tool seat. 

 

Operation of 24" multi-touch control is intuitive and ingenious. Simply create the part in 3D or import a dxf, step or geo file. Just press a button and the control programs the entire folding automatically. If there are several ways to bend the part, the controller shows the alternatives and even suggests a folding strategy. A simulation shows the entire the program cycle in 3D.
