The numerical control system of the press brake is a system that controls the procedures of the machine through a series of programming.
The control system of the press brake is divided into NC and CNC.
The numerical control system can not modify the program, while the CNC system can modify or edit the program.
The CNC system is an advanced version of the NC system.
CNC system greatly improves the accuracy and efficiency of bending operation.
CNC system is also very friendly to operators and can improve work efficiency.
The CNC system contains a variety of programming functions that can store a large number of complex bending steps.
CNC systems can produce large quantities of complex workpieces faster.
A good control system can optimize the procedures and improve production efficiency.
But do you know which press brake controller is the best choice?
This article will introduce how to select the most suitable controller for the press brake.
Introduction of Delem CNC Control System
Delem, founded in the Netherlands in 1978, is a leading enterprise focusing on the CNC control field of sheet metal manufacturing.
Delem's press brake control systems include DA-Retrofit solutions, DA-40 series, DA-50 series, and DA-60 series.
The DA-66T, 69T, 53T, 58T, 41T, and 42T of Delem CNC control systems are touch screen versions.
While DA-66W and 65R CNC control systems are button versions.
Delem CNC Control System - Touch Screen Version
Delem has a variety of touch screen versions of the CNC controller.
The controller of this series is specially used for traditional torsion shaft press brake.
The system is able to control the back gauge(X&R), and beam(Y).
The bright LCD screen can be used for programming parameters including angle, tool, and material.
The DA-42 also has the functions of crowning control and pressure control.
DA 58T is suitable for the electro-hydraulic synchronous press brake.
DA 58T provides 2D touch graphic programming to calculate the bending process and collision detection automatically.
The positions of all axes are calculated automatically.
The bending process is simulated by the real scale machine and toolings.
DA 58T also can be used for tandem operation.
DA 53T is able to control Y1, Y2, and two 2 auxiliary axes
The DA-60 series offers 2D and 3D full touch screen graphics programming.
The DA-69T and DA-66T are suitable for bending procedures that require very high accuracy.
The system is modular, the program is expanded, and the operation is more flexible.
Delem CNC Control System - Botton Version
Delem two common button version controllers are DA-66W and DA-65R.
These two systems provide 2D graphic programming and 3D graphic display functions.
Multi-machine linkage function is provided, and the touch screen is an optional configuration.
Introduction of ESA CNC Control System
Founded in Italy in 1962, Esautomation is the world's leading expert in the field of integrated CNC systems.
By 2022, ESA's products mainly include the 600 and 800 series.
Commonly used are S660, S640, S630, S830, S840, S850, etc.
ESA CNC Control System - S600 Series
S600 series are all touch screens. It can control 3 axes at least and 128 axes at most.
PLC and HMI can be reprogrammed to meet customer customized requirements.
It can adapt to a variety of bending machines, including hydraulic press brake, synchronous hydraulic press brake, electric press brake and tandem press brake, etc.
ESA CNC Control System - S800 Series
S800 series is a new product series launched by the company in 2020.
The innovation of the S800 series is mainly reflected in intelligent modularization, complete
digitalization, and wireless network connection. The screen is 100% full touch, and graphical tools can develop complex 3D interfaces.
Introduction of Cybelec CNC Control System
Cybelec, founded in Switzerland in 1970, is a world-famous manufacturer of computer numerical control software for metal forming.
Cybelec's CNC system includes button versions: CT8P, CT8PS, CT8PS, CT15P, and touch screen version: VisiTouch series.
Cybtouch series is equipped with the Cybtouch tool, which can be used for wireless transmission between PC and system.
Modern streamlined glass surface touch screens can be used with gloves.
The touch screen provides 2D or 3D graphics programming, which can be programmed directly.
Automatic calculation of bending sequence, angle measurement, and collision detection.
It can control multi-axis movement and can be used for tandem press brakes.
ESA has a wide range of products and functions, which are rapidly upgraded and cost-effective.
Delem's products are easy to operate, but the price is a bit high.
The product quality of Cybelec is impeccable, but the operation is slightly complicated.
Of course, the most economical way is to modify the press brake CNC controller.
You can upgrade the system without replacing the controller to improve performance and reduce costs.
The press brake controller retrofit includes improving the accuracy of bending steps and the control accuracy of the back gauge.
Considerations to Select CNC Controller
Easy to use
No matter how advanced the press brake controller is, the most important thing is the easy operation.
The functional design of some controllers pursues advanced technology.
However, this kind of product is not suitable for press brake operators.
The development trend of press brake controllers is versatile functions and simple operation.
The quality of the system should be guaranteed.
Choose well-known brands with a good reputation.
Choose a brand with stable product performance and perfect after-sales service.
