The Stierli Graphical CNC series of horizontal bending and straightening machines deliver a range of power along with a fully networkable and CAD CAM programmable control interface. These three machines are equipped with modern hybrid hydraulic technology resulting in energy savings of up to 80% and very quiet performance.
Our graphical CNC control allows programming of the stroke length into the machine, either by entering the angle, stroke or teaching-in the stroke depth. The graphical CNC gives full control of the 1-, 2- or 3-meter back gauge for fast, accurate positioning of the part. The control can hold up to 100,000 programs with 15 steps each. There is also a library with common parts to allow for quick programming as well as graphical input to see the part being made.
The operator can program the system very easily as the screen leads him through the dialog. During the bend process, operators can also see how the part should be oriented in the machine as well as possible collisions that may happen as a result of the bend.
There is also the option of automatic angle measurement with an accuracy of ±0.3 of a degree. The material-related spring-back is automatically re-bent to achieve maximum process reliability and precision. In addition, the length before bending and the stop positions are calculated automatically.
