Bystronic releases Xpert 40 small format press brake

The Xpert 40 provides a first glimpse of Bystronic's vision for the small format bending experience of the future. According to Bystronic, the attraction of the press brake, which rounds off the company’s range for the small machine segment, is primarily its speed.

The Xpert 40's lightweight design delivers high levels of dynamics at bending speeds of up to 25 mm/sec. This means that it can bend small parts three times faster than larger press brake models, according to the company.

On bending lengths exceeding 1 m, the Xpert 40 generates a press capacity of 40 tons. Bystronic's newly developed ByMotion drive control system ensures a finely tuned interplay between speed, precision and power, it is claimed.

By co-ordinating the acceleration of the upper beam and the back gauges, Bystronic says that bending results having the highest degree of repetition accuracy are delivered.
