It's versatile, accurate, rugged, easy to operate, and easy to maintain. That's the way Betenbender makes its Press Brakes. Whether you bend plastic or steel, there's a Betenbender Hydraulic Press Brake to match your needs, ranging from the 20-ton model to the 550-ton. No matter the size, each machine features convenient operation for maximum output and ease of maintenance for maximum productivity. Betenbender goes the extra mile to build a Press Brake that works hard, works accurately, and stays that way for years to come. When your name goes on the finished product, so does your reputation. We feel the same way. Compare features. Compare results. You can count on first-class American technology, rugged durability, versatility, and economy when it's made by Betenbender Manufacturing, Inc
Simple & Flexible Controls: Use either a convenient multi-switch control panel or a 3-position fully guarded footswitch. Accuracy: Every Betenbender machine is thoroughly inspected and tested. Parallelism is maintained between bed and ram, or at a preset angle, by using precise automatic leveling controls. Parallelism is maintained at ±0.002 inches at low speed. The ram bottom reversal point is controlled by precise limit switches referenced off the bed. This isolates housing deflections which can interfere with accuracy. The side situated handwheel sets the bottom limit of the ram stroke. Micrometer adjustment on the control end allows for tilting or paralleling of the ram. A bed referenced control monitors the actual distance between ram and bed, assuring repeatability independent of die wear or end plate deflection. Versatility: Betenbender's Press Brakes have long, full tonnage stroke; adjustable length and selectable speed combinations; adjustable height for short stroke. Two-speed is standard; three-speed with infinitely adjustable low speed is optional. This option prevents sudden whip up of the work during bending operations. Maintenance: Clevis mounted cylinders eliminate cylinder binding reducing the possibility of oil leaks. Pins and bushings do not rotate under load, resulting in much less wear than competitive products. Easy Hydraulic System Maintenance: The manifold assembly saves space and makes it easy to replace many components. The convenient work height makes the job easier. Convenient Settings: Readout reads in increments of 0.001 inches allows recorded settings of closed heights. Standard Components: The control system components, micro switches, clamp-type backgauge, hydraulic fluid, and filter cartridges are all standard equipment, making routine maintenance easier. Flexibility: 2-speed ram is electrically controlled. It lets you shift to a slower speed before coming into contact with sheet metal. Control: The ram stops at the point of reference and self-levels on every stroke. Main control cabinet enclosures are mounted on the side frame containing magnetic, non-reversing motor, starter, and 110/120v control circuit. Safety and Reliability: The control system operates at 110/120v using a minimum of circuitry. The system operates predominantly with American-made electronics and American-made motors. Durability: All steel end frames, ram, and bed. Electrical Equipment: Meets requirements of NFPA 79. It includes drip-proof, continuous duty 45ºC ambient hydraulic pump motor wired for 208-230/460v 3 phase, 60 hertz, others optional.
