AMADA’s HRB-ATC features a full size ATC, offering exactly the same number of tool storage racks as the company’s high-end HG-ATC press brake. The new machine comes with a package of AMADA tools based on an assessment of the customer’s manufacturing requirements. Importantly, the HRB-ATC is completely compatible with AMADA AFH/Promecam standard tool sets. As a result, any existing customer using these tools can load them manually to the new machine if desired.
A CNC press brake with ATC capability brings many advantages to companies that want to increase the amount of time their press brake is engaged in actual bending activities. The ATC can reduce set-up times by up to 80% in comparison with an operator loading a tool manually, which is a clear benefit for subcontractors or companies that undertake several tool layout changes a day. Additionally, whilst the ATC is functioning, the operator can simultaneously complete other tasks, increasing overall efficiency.
The presence of the ATC and its rapid set-up potential makes the new press brake particularly ideal for those processing small batch sizes. Subcontract fabricators serving markets such as refrigeration, kitchen equipment, retail display, furniture and construction, for instance, will certainly benefit.
