The belt and pulley drive system works with two synchronized servo motors which transfer the force to the upper beam from belt and pulley movements. During the movement of the upper beam, servo motors coil the belt to the main pulley and apply the bending force with even distribution of tonnage across the entire bed length, which allows eliminating almost any need for crowning in the system. That’s why crowning systems are optional for APES SERVO due to the material being used. The return force, which is mechanical for the upper beam, comes from the springs which are located on both sides of the machine, which provides up to %50 energy savings and low CO2 emissions.
APES SERVO Press Brake is designed as closed “O” frame. Instead of C frame, O frame is much more rigid, which reduce and eliminate any deflection in the ram and bed of the machine even under full loaded tonnage, which leads high consistency and high positioning accuracy.
Another benefit of O frame construction design is to allow entire bed length to work with.
