Automec, Inc. is now a Certified USA Dealer of CoastOne servo-electric press brakes. Automec handles sales and service for customers in the U.S, as they have been with their backgauge systems for the last 47 years. Servo-electric press brakes are becoming the future in press brake technology. By the term, “servo-electric,” it may seem hard to believe that these machines conserve more electricity than traditional press brakes. However, CoastOne servo-electric press brakes are not running hydraulic pumps and heating fluids all day. These press brakes only use energy when in motion and conserve the energy otherwise.
The technology behind the CoastOne press brake is the “direct-drive system,” which uses servo motors directly tied to ball screws to administer force. Because of the “direct-drive system,” the ram monitors encoders on each drive, as opposed to monitoring linear scales on the sides of the brake (as many competitors do). This in turn offers an outrageous accuracy of 0.000079 inches! It also eliminates any tollerance issues, due to deflection in the press brake frame. CoastOne press brakes also have "automatic crowning" because the machine varies the force on each drive, based on the location and length of the material.
You'll be shocked to hear the low price point of these state of the art machines.
