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.
