FABTECH Chicago presented many innovations on sheet metal working. SafanDarley was present with new technologies and showcased a wide range of machines. During the exhibition Harris Fabrication invested in the SafanDarley E-Brake 200T, a 100% servo-electronic press brake. The machine is already installed at Harris Fabrication.
Since 1995 SafanDarley’s servo-electronic technology has proven to be 30% faster than conventional press brakes. Cycle times of the SafanDarley E-Brake are far shorter than conventional press brakes due to the active safety light guard system and the acceleration of the servo motors. Additional benefits of the servo-electronic technology are even distribution of forces through the use of a unique roller drive system in the upper beam. This balanced combinational of powerful electro-motors, fixed and movable rollers and specially developed belts facilitate capacities of up to 200T. The SafanDarley E-Brake only uses energy when the top beam is actually moving. This can deliver an energy saving of up to 50% compared with conventional hydraulic press brakes.
The E-Brake 200T is equipped with E-Control EC20 software to facilitate both numeric and 2D graphical programming. It is possible to draw a complete product by means of touch screen and to then automatically generate a bending program.
Harris Fabrication has over 50 years of combined experience in the fabrication industry and leads the area in providing fully fabricated and assembled products for a variety of industrial applications. Their 40,000 square foot facility houses a full-scale operation to include laser cutting, metal forming, welding, machining, finishing, assembly, and logistics. The integration of the SafanDarley 200T E-Brake will further Harris Fabrication’s dedication to world class manufacturing through technology, innovation, and a commitment to quality.Back to the overview
SafanDarley is adding a new model to its Hybrid brake press range with a working length of 2,050 mm. This model is available with a pressing force of 110 tons or 170 tons. The machine is compact and fast and extremely suitable for bending small, complex, thick sheet metal parts.
With the start of 2017 we expand our area in North America with the state of Michigan. We also appointed two new distributors for Poland.
