ADVANCED Sheetmetal Technologies has released the Wila Multi-V-Matic, a system that all but eliminates the task of changing a lower die on a press brake.
It adjusts the V-opening to any dimension the operator requires with a turn of a manual crank handle or through an optional CNC interface. This allows more efficient die adjustments, repeatable accuracy and reduced risk of operator injury.
Opposing forces are offset, which increases the unit's stability as bending forces are applied. Correct die width is obtained by turning the handle or activating the CNC controlled motor.
The manual Multi-V-Matic includes an onboard digital display that shows the position of the V-opening. This value can be recorded for exact repeatability of the same job on the next run.
Accuracy and repeatability are assured automatically as the CNC model operates using precise data. To give the equipment a long lifespan, Multi-V-Matic has twin precision ground and hardened bending inserts that are easily replaced if required.
