FedTech Brings in the 'Xpert'

Press Brake at FedTech

SAINT PAUL, MINN., April 3, 2009 - A local job shop, FedTech Inc., maintains its legendary trade mark of being on the cutting edge of industry trends with yet another addition to their production floor. This time, it was a chance to really step up and bring in something big - something 161" x 144" big.

The new Bystronic Beyeler Xpert 320 is a prominent contender in Swiss precision and is now a key player on FedTech's production floor. The advanced press brake now brings the capability to form parts with 352 tons of force. The machinery offers 29" of open height (ideal for fabrication of deep boxes or lengthy flanges), an 18" RAM stroke, and hydraulic tool clamping for fast setup and heightened flexibility.

The Xpert 320 is coupled with Bybend graphic CAM software which permits direct importing of DXF, DWG, and IGES files. This versatile feature minimizes setup times and allows for quicker turnaround as well.

Tooling is another attribute emphasized on the Xpert 320. FedTech's decision to pair the Xpert with Wila precision ground new standard style tooling improves the overall efficiency and quality of finished parts. Not only this, but the unique tool design does not require preloading. This allows for faster set up time between jobs.

Not to forget an even more evident feature on the Xpert is its built-in dynamic crowning which moves and adapts pressure in the bed according to the material being formed. This benefit ensures the accuracy of bends, regardless of the grain direction, material length or material thickness.
