ABS-R: Automatic Bending System – Retrofittable - Amada Engineering Europe
ABS-R solution represents the entry level solution of the Amada “bending automation” range and can be combined with HFP, HFE-M2, HD, HFE-M2 EVO and HFE3i press-brake.
Although the focus and sales strategy is concentrated upon the strategical products EG-AR, HG-ARs and HG-Rm, ASB-R can represent a solution in case of a high customized request or in the case a retrofit is required on an existing press-brake.
In the latest months of 2017, the AEE’s engineering team completed the installation of 2 ABS-R systems, one in Russia and one in Spain, satisfying specific customers’ requests.
For the Russian customer, a dynamic gripper has been realized, i.e. a gripper equipped with a set of suction cups with pneumatic movement able to handle the parts in a suitable way.
For the Spanish customer, whose request was connected to the loading/unloading capability and flexibility, a solution with 5 independent loading areas has been developed.
These can be added to other important customizations realized by the AEE’s engineering team in the recent years; among the most important ones we can mention:
– The Automatic Notching Unit System integrated in the automatic process;
– The Centering Table System for small and big parts management and cycle time optimization;
– The Polyurethane Cycle & Interlayer Cycle: the automatic positioning of polyurethane parts/protective material to separate layers on the unloading pallet.
AEE’s engineering team is always ready to evaluate, study, and develop new customizations to better automate customers’ bending process.
