Safety and productivity
DSP-AP generates a visible laser protection compliant with EN12622 regulation. The beam protects the press brake operator from the danger of being crushed between upper and lower tool. This device reduces the mute point (speed change point) to up to 4 mm from the sheet metal, thus permitting a remarkable saving in the duration of the bending cycle.
As a result, the ram moves at a higher speed for a longer time, keeping the part of the bending cycle when it moves at a lower speed to a minimum. The amount of time that can be saved by DSP-AP with respect to a conventional system is about 1.2 seconds per bend. With average usage of the machine, this means a time saving of about one month worth of work each year.
The DSP-AP laser safety also features blanking for automatic recognition of boxes and profiles with side walls. Moreover, the DSP-AP laser safety is equipped with the "Safe Release" function: supports are designed to unhook without damage in case of collisions with lower tools or other objects during descent.
Our latest innovation is CNC-managed motorized positioning: transmitter and receiver move themselves automatically to the exact height according to tools used and working conditions.
