Bending Press Machine

The machine consists of modules that can be added or removed to alter its horizontal length. When the machine is configured for shearing operations a protective modular screen is added. The modular screen has at its lower end, cylinders that hold the metal sheet during the shearing operation. The activation of the cylinders is through a circuit that is completed when the screen is added. Sensors are used to ensure the safety of the operator and a control system controls the machine operations once an appropriate operation has been chosen. The control system also coordinates and integrates the functions of added or removed modules of the machine ensuring smooth machine function during, before and after the transition. A computer programme is used to synchronise the software, hardware and control systems of the machine.
