Intuitive Information System for Press Brakes

MC Machinery Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corp., has announced a new press brake operator support tool: the VIDERE system for its BB and BH series machines. The VIDERE system helps press brake operators by supplying information and intuitive assist features in an easily understandable and readable format in real time.

Whether an experienced operator or new to bending, the high-speed and high-accuracy VIDERE system, including advanced operator support features, delivers the information when needed in the operator's field of view. The name, VIDERE, stems from the Latin word meaning "to see" or "to perceive with one's eyes."

"We developed the VIDERE system as an operator support tool to maximize manufacturers' uptime and improve staff utilization to help combat the skilled worker shortage facing the industry today, all without requiring a large budget or floor space for automation," said David Bray, National Press Brake Product Manager at MC Machinery. "With the ability to view DXF files, 3-D models, bending simulations and tool locations, MC Machinery making it easier to bridge the gap of manufacturing and technology."

The VIDERE system offers the ability to view and manipulate DXF files, 3-D models, bending simulations, change bend sequences, tool allocations and full, real-time simulations parallel to the bending process with bend assist.

"The VIDERE system is priced to achieve ROI in less than one year," said an MC Machinery spokesperson.
