Automated Press Brake Tending

Press Brake Automation Solutions

The Cross Automated Press Brake Tending solution is designed to operate press brakes without constant manual operator interaction. This frees up employees to work higher-priority tasks while increasing accuracy and overall productivity. In today’s increasingly tight labor market, it’s becoming more and more difficult to find workers and keep them in dull, repetitive jobs.

With a quick ROI period and high integration potential, our brake press automation solutions can perform labor-intensive, monotonous tasks with ease. This allows your workers to perform more complex tasks that can’t be performed through automation.

Our automated press brake solution uses two-way handshaking to communicate directly with the press brake itself. Then uses two-way communication to tell the machine when to run and receive a signal when it’s done.

Robotic Tending for Press Brakes

Press brakes are a crucial component of almost every fabricator. Yet in many cases, they are at best underutilized and at worst utilized ineffectively. Though manufacturing technology has improved and modernized, press brakes are still a high-labor machine tool. Which is exactly why effective industrial automation can make such a difference when it comes to press brakes. In fact, it’s even been displayed that robotic press brakes can lower the cost per-piece by up to 50%. Which translates to higher productivity, increased quality, and a better bottom line.

Automating your press brakes can have many benefits other than cost-saving and productivity-boosting. Implementing automation for press brakes can free up workers and allow them to contribute to more meaningful, less automated parts of a production process. It also increases workplace safety. Both of these factors can be major contributors to a safer workplace and higher employee retention.
