This company has introduced an updated model in its C Series press-brake line for the North American market. Designed as an introductory-level machine, the C Series is equipped with the essential performance features of the company's V Series, but in a package intended for customers whose material processing or capacity requirements warrant only a basic machine. The new C Series features an increased bending area, more rigid construction, Bendguard to ensure safe bending, a programmable back gauge, four-cylinder ram drive and a crowning system. Currently available in the C Series is the C66, which is rated at 73 tons with 82 inches of bending length. It also offers advance- and reverse-travel speeds at 472 inches per minute.
