Controller PC 400

 
With The Menu Based Dialog Window, Bending Programs Can Be Easily Generated And Managed. The Generated Programs Can Have Any Number Of Segments Added Together And Can Be Bent In One Or More Passes On Any Or All Bends. “Canned” Programs For Creating Ellipses, Handrails For Spiral Staircases, “Napoleon” Bends, S-Bends Or Special Forms Are Included. Through The Coordinated Control Of The X- And Y-Axes, Smooth Transitions Between Radii And Straight Segments Are Assured.

When Bending Material With Unknown Material Constants (Elasticity), Minor Deviations From The Programmed Data Can Occur. By Simply Entering The Actual Bent Radius, The System Automatically Calculates The Correction Needed And The Profile Gets Re-Bent To The Correct Radius. Due To Continuous Monitoring And Positioning Of The X-Axis, Deviations Are Eliminated During Bending Of Single Pieces Or Production Runs. A Graphical Representation Of The Programmed Workpiece Enables Easy Control Of The Programmed Data.
The PC400 Control Leaves Nothing To Be Desired. From The Inventor Of PC-Based Controls On 3-Roll Benders, This Technology Is Unequaled. A Catalog Of Spring-Back Diagrams By Material Can Easily Be Built For Future Reference And For Automatic Radius Measurement During Bending. If Desired, An Interface Can Be Made To Your CAD Program So Programs Can Be Created Directly From Your Drawings. New Remote Diagnostics And Maintenance Can Be Provided Via The Internet, Thus Providing Customers An Even Higher Level Of Support.
The Control Hardware Consists Of A High-Performance Industrial 15” “Multi-Touch” Computer With SSD (Solid State Disc). Using Microsoft’s Windows 7 OS, The System Can Easily Be Included In A Corporate Network. This Allows Central Data Management, Automatic Backup And The Capability To Create Programs On An Office Workstation Instead Of At The Machine. Documentation For Each Program And Part Can Be Created And Saved As A PDF File And Attached To The Program. This Feature Makes It Simple To Include Process Sheets, Images And Other Data With Each Part Program.
PBT Created An Open System With The PC400 Control. Through The Use Of Standard Components, The Control Can Be Expanded To Customer-Specific Needs
