Robotic Press Brake Tending Applications

Durability that delivers

For sheet metal press tending or stamping applications with high duty cycles, our press handling robots are ideal. Designed with heavy-duty drive systems that deliver in the most demanding applications, these robots also have higher vibration ratings to tolerate the tough conditions often encountered in press rooms.

Metal Press Operation

Yaskawa Motoman have developed solutions for part infeed, transfer and pack-out/racking of sheet metal press lines and stand-alone press systems. We offer custom end-of arm tooling, as well as interfaces to various presses and equipment. Our fully developed press line control system features diagnostic capabilities for the line and each individual press. We also provide accurate computer modeling and simulation to optimize equipment layout and maximize throughput. Operator safety is significantly improved by eliminating manual press loading, along with complete safety solutions.

Press Brake

From small parts to large, unwieldy sheets of metal, Motoman robots are ideal for press tending applications.By utilizing various gripper options and flexible regrip/orientation stations, difficult positioning is easily achievable during the bending sequence. Various parts are accommodated with an automatic tool change unit which allows the robot to select the correct gripper for the work piece. Depending on requirements, infeed magazines, outfeed pallets, conveyors and other peripherals can be fully integrated for a complete automated press brake solution.

Metal Press Robots and Accessories

Yaskawa Motoman offers a variety of solutions for metal forming applications. We have a wide range of six-axis robots with payloads up to 600 kg. Floor-mounted or inverted MotoRailâ„¢ tracks are also available. If the part being produced exceeds the capability of a single robot, a second robot can be added on the floor or a track. These multiple robot applications benefit from our patented multiple robot control, which provides coordinated motion that is extremely valuable when two robots are handling a single part.

In press tending or high duty cycle stamping applications, our Expert Press or Expert Press Handling robots are ideal. These robots are designed with heavy duty drive systems and have higher vibration ratings for use in the press room. Some models are designed to work with our parallel link tool that allows the robot to be used on a press line without rotating the dies, a common request from some stampers.
