THE absence of hydraulics in the SAFAN E-Brake means that the problems associated with environmentally harmful oil are a thing of the past.
Checking hydraulic components such as valves, tanks, pumps, filters and seals is no longer necessary either.
The environmentally friendly technology of SAFAN E-Brake uses up to 50 per cent less energy than conventional press brakes.
The SAFAN E-Brake is also said to produce the most accurate and constant bending angles along the entire working length of the press-brake without the need for crowning. The unique, patented roller drive system in the upper beam ensures a uniform and direct distribution of forces.
The servo-electronic drive with fast start and stop times allows for bending speeds of up to 20 mm/sec. The integration of this drive, combined with the SAFAN Touch Screen control panel and the safety light screen, cycle times are typically cut by 30 per cent.
The machine comes with a unique, innovative back gauge system as a standard, which can be very accurately controlled and used on the entire working width.
The SAFAN E-brake almost doesn’t require electricity when it’s not in bending mode. 90 per cent percent of the operating time a press brake is not actually bending.
This is due to approach and return movement, handling, programming, preparing, setting up tools etc. On a hydraulic press brake the drive of the hydraulic system is running all the time causing the oil to heat up. In stand-by operation an E-brake only requires power to run a PC and PLC.
