ABS-R - The retrofittable bending cell

ABS-R is a bending system based on six axis robot integrated with AMADA press brakes.

The ABS-R can be provided as a complete new system (HFE M2 EVO, HFE3i) or as a retrofit for existing AMADA press brakes (HFP, HFE II, or HD). The system can be used in automatic mode (robot bending) or in manual mode (manual bending)

Two robots models are available

Standard grippers are composed by aluminum profiles and vacuum cups; cups can be divided in different groups to allow better handling of the part; vacuum cups are available in many different types, dimensions and they are managed by digital ejector.
