Robot Metal Folding

Trumpf Trubend Cell 7000

Trumpf Trubend Cell 7000 Fold

Fully automated robotic bending cell including automatic part picking and finished part scanning. The TruBend Cell is ideal for high volume, smaller part production and can produce parts at a rapid pace with ultimate accuracy. 

Offline programming and lights out operation allow for a cost effective folding solution. 


Amada Astro 100NT Robot Folder

The state of the art Astro 100NT is a totally automatic unmanned robotic bending system featuring an integrated 110-ton hydraulic press brake.

Designed for high-precision part productivity through reduced cycle times, the Astro 100NT offers superior productivity with reduced labour by utilising the entire length of ram allowing flexible multiple stage bending.

In addition, offline programming dramatically reducing set-up times, allowing for cost-effective small batch runs.
