03 Aug PERFECT, ERROR-FREE PARTS: FROM PROFILE TO MANUFACTURE:
Various factors influence fast and precise part manufacturing. With the possibility of remote programming and use of innovative systems for thickness detection, active crowning and angle control.
VICLA® has qualified, young engineers and technicians working for it. With an open mentality capable of designing fast and flexible solutions, designed for optimal operation of the entire bending presses machining process: from profile to manufacturing of the part.
What you expect from an artisan is part precision, fast execution and the ability to group multiple processes in a single machine. VICLA® bending presses, from the .SUPERIOR for large-sized bends to the .FIRST, a compact bending press for small and medium-sized formats, are equipped with systems for programming on the machine and from remote. Programming is guaranteed by the numerical control systems on board enabling enhanced quality of the parts, while at the same time reducing production costs and times. Programming from the office also enables the possibility of reducing operator intervention to a minimum, also in relation to difficulties of finding specialist staff.
The first step to achieve part production involves drafting a 2D drawing (dxf or dwg) or 3D drawing (iges or Step). The cad/cam system on VICLA® bending presses can host 2D and 3D files through a USB interface or a network card and recognises the bending lines and tools to use. This is how the software automatically calculates the profile, thickness and type of material, the development of the sheet metal as well as the bending sequence, force, positioning of the axes and crowning.
Perfection of the part and rapid and error-free realisation also depends on other factors, such as detection systems for thickness, active crowning and angle control. Technical prerogatives finding ample use in VICLA® bending presses.
