Press break retrofit

Metacam Press break retrofit

This is a press brake retrofit kit that we offer for Amada RG and FBD machines (Currently these models). These machines comes in 35, 50, 80, 100 and 125 Tonne models that are basically 3 axis machines (with just X axis motorized on the back gauge.

The fingers are manually moved in the Z and R axis. They have a NC 9EX control that has a 7 segment display and no offline programming capability.


We  could offer a retrofit kit that includes

1.      15” Touch screen display

2.      3D programming control – Profile Editor, DXF import, 3D model programming

3.      3D visual simulation on the control with collision check and programming

4.      Upgrade to a 6 axis fully motorized back gauge.

5.      Offline programming ready with MetaBend

6.      Network Ready system


The solution can convert a very basic manual press brake that is 20+ years old into a new press brake with a new control, motors, drives, back gauge that has seen to have about 25 to 30% increased productivity. Further with offline programming users are able to reduce their setup time on the machine and do all the programming in the office.
