The BendMaster automated bending system provides flexibility and speed as well as precision, process reliability, easy setup and safe and comfortable operation, according to the company. It says short programming and setup times make it economical to use with batch runs as small as 30 units, and can be used for heavy components of up to 88 pounds as well as light and complex components. The bending machine and the BendMaster are controlled by a single control system and are programmed together using ToPs 600.
