New High-Precision ProBend Press Brakes Available

BLM GROUP’s (Novi, MI) new ProBend press brakes are available in the patented all-electric E-Series or the hybrid H-Series version.

Posted: November 18, 2021

BLM GROUP’s new E-series ProBend Press Brake.

The ProBend E-Series is available in sizes from 44-to-276-ton models capable of handling bending lengths of 4’-to-17’. The ProBend H-Series is available in sizes from 44-to-660-ton models capable of handling bending lengths of 4’-to- 20’. These high-precision press brakes offer reliability, high productivity, and are a perfect complement to the company’s LS5 flat sheet lasers.

E-Series: The innovative direct-drive design of this electric press brake has the ball screw directly connected to the torque motor, eliminating gear boxes and belts for fewer moving components. This precision Y1/Y2 press brake with positioning and repeatability of ±0.0001″ is energy efficient, provides noise and maintenance-free operation as well as extremely fast approach, bending and ram return speeds. The E-Series comes standard with a substantial amount of stroke and open height compared to industry standards, benefitting deep box or special forming needs. Built for optimum accuracy and high speeds on all 6-axes, the E-Series’ CNC-controlled backgauge meets the demands of the most complex sheet metal applications for high-production manufacturing.

H-Series: As compared to traditional technology, the Hybrid H-Series reduces energy demand by 35 percent while providing greater ram speed performance and an Y1/Y2 accuracy of ±0.0004″. Additionally, it maintains a stable hydraulic fluid temperature that results in more consistent bending performance. It can be equipped with up to a 6-Axis backgauge for processing the toughest applications.

All systems come with a state-of-the-art 21.5” touchscreen console, enabling graphical or direct mode programming directly on the machine or offline, and includes integrated views for various OLP software applications. The software automatically generates the part program from the imported CAD model and calculates the optimal bend sequence, stop positions, and tooling setup. A complete bending simulation, with automatic validations and checks, allows the user to verify the entire bending cycle and begin producing parts correctly.
