The Baileigh BP6778C Bending Brakeshas a heavy welded frame of solid plate steel making this a very rigid machine that runs so smoothly in production. To aid with rigidity the beam is stabilized by 3 axis bearings sliding on several extremely hardened stabilization tracks and is further stabilized by a unique parallel mechanism. All of this attention to detail assures high accuracy between both dies at any position of the stroke. This precise sheet metal bender is a two axis NC machine where positioning of the upper beam and back gauge can be fine tuned and whose position is via encoder controls. The top beam uses two precise hydraulic cylinders that are coupled to an encoder to measure their exact position. The position of the downward stroke is illuminated on the DRO (digital readout). This means you can accurately fine tune a sheet metal bend and make it perfect every time. The motorized back gauge rides on a solid ball screw trolley mechanism and its position is being read by an encoder whose displaying its whereabouts on a separate DRO. Fine tuning of both the beam and back gauge are by separate hand wheels. This means is that this is an extremely accurate hydraulic brake press across the entire width of the beam. This machine can be run in three modes. The first is the jog mode which is exclusively meant for set up. The second is manual where the operator may wish to have more control over the decent and return of the beam in production. The final is automatic which is for full production. Standard on all Baileigh Industrial brake presses.
