FastBEND Standard Press Brake Tending Cells


FastBend Robotic Cell

Hire a FastBEND standard robotic cell to do the repetitive and dangerous small-parts work on your press brake.

Operating press brakes is a potentially dangerous part of sheet metal forming and metal part fabrication. But what if you could produce more, higher-quality parts without adding risk to your workers?

The FastBEND robotic cell can be integrated with new or existing press brakes to process a wide variety of formed parts. It may be outfitted for bin, pallet and conveyor outputs.

Plus, get fast delivery in as little as TWELVE weeks so you can increase capacity right away.

Do You Need to AUTOMATE Your Press Brake?

  • Does your press brake sit idle during the day?
  • Do you have a lot of quality variances and scrap?
  • Do you lose time in downstream operations due to those quality shortcomings?
  • Do you want to increase capacity overnight or during off shifts or run lights-out?
  • Do you struggle to attract and retain skilled workers?
  • Do your employees experience problems due to straining and repetitive motion?
  • Are you concerned about operator safety around the press brake machines, especially when forming small parts?

If you said yes to any of these questions, a FastBEND could be your solution to address key business challenges, fast.

Why FastBEND?

The many benefits of a FastBEND press brake tending robotic cell gives manufacturers and fabricators an instant competitive advantage.

Safer workers

Keep laborers away from the fatigue, strain and potential dangers of repetitive and dangerous press brake operation. Reallocate employees to more valuable jobs.

Fast changeout

Autonomous change out for brake tooling and grippers depending on the options, part and program chosen.

Better quality and less scrap

Robots are precise and consistent.

Lower costs, fast ROI

With higher capacity and lower cost per part, most shops see an ROI in 18 to 24 months.

High production

Queue up to 4-6 different parts and set up 725-1,100kg of blanks for bending. Run for hours in lights-out continuous operation.

Versatility

Many end-of-arm tooling options for a variety of applications. Can be repurposed to tend other types of machines.

Fast delivery

Delivery in as little as twelve weeks, so you can ramp-up fast and immediately increase capacity.

Offline programming

Keep your line moving by programming offline during production.

FLEXIBILITY

Works with most press brake brands. Room to operate brake manually when needed.

Automation Partner
