Mobile Press Brake



Bystronic Inc. has announced the release of its new Xpert 80 press brake. With the Xpert 80, Bystronic is continuing the concept of the mobile press brake. Compared to the Xpert 40, the Xpert 80 offers a decisive increase in bending length and press capacity. This opens up a wide spectrum of applications. Over a bending length of approximately 5', the Xpert 80 generates a press capacity of 88 U.S. tons and all of this with a footprint of less than 10 sq. ft.

The Xpert 80 provides users with support for flexible job shop production with fluctuating batch sizes and varying bent parts as well as for series production with recurring parts. For example, the machine can be set up next to a laser cutting system, and the following day in a row with other press brakes in order to process a large bending series.

"For many users, bending requires manufacturing small- to medium-sized parts using press brakes that are too big for the job," said a company spokesperson. For parts up to a bending length of approximately 5 feet and a maximum thickness of 3/4 of an inch, these users do not really need a large-scale bending machine, but a small and versatile powerhouse. Bystronic developed the Xpert 80 for these requirements.

The machine is designed to achieve bending speeds up to 25 mm (1") per second. This enables users to bend three times as many parts with the compact machine. "The ByMotion drive control, a Bystronic development, ensures that the Xpert 80's upper beam and back gauges are accelerated with high precision. This creates an interplay between speed, precision and bending force. The results are bending processes with high levels of repetition accuracy and speed," said the spokesperson.
