At FABTECH, Bystronic introduced a mobile automation module for its Xpert 40 press brake.

The result is a compact solution for automated as well as manual bending. Users can process large lots with the automated bending cell, and also bend small lots or individual parts manually when necessary. Just plug in and start bending. Setup the robotic system takes just a few minutes.

Also introduced at FABTECH were two new options for the Xpert 40 (shown): a bending-line laser, which enables part bending without using the backgauge, ideal for conical parts and others that do not provide a stop position; and an optical footswitch control to optimize versatility and ergonomics.
