The New Accurl Hybrid Servo CNC Press Brake
Presented by Complete Machine Tools
The requirements and expectations of machinery users and owners has grown steadily alongside the industrial and manufacturing sectors. This has been found in sheet metal forging and manufacturing units and industries as CNC press brakes form a major constituent of the sheet metal sector. Here are the important features that you should know about your hybrid servo CNC press brake system, to help you correlate their benefits better.
The simple CNC press brake system which started out as a torsion bar CNC set up has now evolved into the popular hydraulic CNC systems in use in most renowned industries.
The hybrid servo CNC press brake variant is the latest one in line.
Understanding the Hybrid Press Brake
The hybrid servo CNC press brake combines both electric and hydraulic press brake machines. The positive and beneficial factors pertaining to both of the mentioned counterparts are incorporated into a single system resulting in the hybrid version of press brakes.
Hybrid brakes make use of lesser hydraulic fluid in comparison to conventional press brakes. Unlike the hydraulic press brakes the fluid is not in a constant fluid motion.
Advantages of a Hybrid Press Brake
The hybrid press brake system compiles the features of both hydraulic and electrical press brake machines.
This new machine was achieved through the work of the researchers of the field, who explored the patterns of hydraulic machines and electrically operated systems as individual units. In the process, researchers decided to combine the products and harness any high performance features.
The most noteworthy advantages which were brought about by the introduction of the hybrid servo press brake system are as follows:
- Environmentally friendliness
- Energy saving
- High efficiency
- Fully automated with no need for manual assistance
- Great value
In the hybrid servo press brake systems, the servo pump acts as a functional replacement for the traditional servo proportional valve and control technology. With such developments made possible with the recent versions of the press brake machines, new technology has replaced the previous hydraulic directional valves. By taking out this step in the process, users can save time that is otherwise wasted in monitoring and managing the valve shifts.
Additional savings are made as the machinery operates including hydraulic oil usage, energy consumption and the process itself. The cut in the usage of oil is mostly a result of minimising throttling loss. By allowing its users to save from ⅓ to 1/5th of general hydraulic oil usage, these hybrid systems help achieve real-time energy savings that have a massive influence in the long term.
The machine provides indirect control over the checking of energy expenditure and directly contributes to energy efficiency as a result. In comparison to conventional press brake and bending systems, the energy efficiency shown by the hybrid system is significantly lower.
The difference is because all energy used by the system is only the direct requirement of the press brake with no additional charges. Most pressure from the bottleneck is either reduced, offset, or both, which allows the machine to reduce up to 75% of the energy consumption. The energy efficiency feature also applies when the machines are in standby mode.
The hybrid CNC press brake has a range of features such as positioning accuracy, bending accuracy, return speed, working speed, effective maintenance of a suitable internal environment, as well as internal temperature. All of these additions contribute to increased productivity and efficiency of work exhibited by the machine.
An additional benefit is the oil temperature maintenance system of the unit and its importance in preventing unnecessary overheating. By maintaining the oil temperature in the device at a desirable level of 38 degrees celsius and not letting it rise beyond 50 degrees, the hybrid machine is indirectly protecting the user from the risks of oil leakage, stability issues, and unnecessary service and maintenance checks.
With the new hybrid servo CNC press brakes, the selection of tools, recognition and detection of results are completely controlled by the machine itself. It can make all the necessary calls independently by processing available data and through the input the user provides. This creates work efficiency, accuracy and allows minimal space for human error.
The new hybrid system is also very quiet. Though this might not seem like a game-changing factor, it can be quite important for industries that operate in relatively crowded areas, or shops that are looking to install a machine within or close to their store itself. The main feature controlling noise production is the use of a two-way gear pump and a servo motor.
The hybrid press brake system has an extensive list of benefits like providing its users with high levels of satisfaction and quality of work. The system is a productive automatic alternative to traditional press brake systems.
All the options provided by the machine manufacturers can also improve the output and efficiency of these machines. It is important that features are carefully understood to choose a machine that suits every single individual requirement before making a purchase. With such an effective press brake system available, visible changes in the overall accuracy and efficiency will be found, ultimately improving quality of work and the bottom line.
