DJ Webster will introduce Safan’s latest drive system for E-Brake press brakes at Southern Manufacturing 2010.

The company said that Safan’s servo-driven beam delivers a 30 per cent reduction in cycle times and a 50 per cent reduction in running costs when compared to conventional hydraulic versions.

The electronic drive operates on the pulley principle and results in an even distribution of bending forces.

According to Safan, the end result is that in 98 per cent of cases no crowning table is required.

Machines are available in widths up to 4,000mm and maximum beam load of 200 tonnes.

Safan’s M-Shear range incorporates a combination of electrical and hydraulic power to the cutting beam.

Features that can be specified include programmable starting position for the cutting beam and touch-screen selection of the cutting programs.

Safan machines can incorporate robot loading and unloading of individual machines as well as the complete routing of the sheet metal through a manufacturing cell.
