BLM Group introduced its ProBend press brakes. The all-electric E-Series is available in 44- to 276-ton models capable of handling bending lengths of 4 ft. to 17 ft. The hybrid H-Series is available in 44- to 660-ton models capable of handling bending lengths of 4 ft. to 20 ft. The direct-drive design of the electric press brake has the ballscrew directly connected to the torque motor, eliminating gear boxes and belts. This Y1/Y2 press brake with positioning and repeatability of ±0.0001 in. is energy efficient and provides noise and maintenance-free operation as well as extremely fast approach, bending and ram return speeds.
