2100 incorporates single
stroke function with Select-o-Stop and ram control functions.
This converts mechanically actuated press brakes to electrical
foot switch actuation and gives the press brake automatic slow
forming capability. Excellent for the long run and small piece
part production shop where uniform piece part forming is required.
Meets current OSHA standards for control reliability and component
monitoring and also incorporates brake monitoring.

Provides a slow speed feature on mechanically actuated, friction
clutch press brakes. This allows the operator to automatically
slow-form a part to prevent damage to the part and to prevent
potential injury due to part "whipping up" during the
forming. When equipped with the ram control, the ram advances
to a pre-determined position above the work with the clutch fully
engaged (fast down). At this point, the ram will stop, allowing
for realignment of the part before forming. The foot switch is
then actuated a second time and the ram will advance slowly,
forming the part and then return to the top of the stroke at
a high speed (fast return). The Ram Control can be adjusted to
provide the best speed for the part being formed. Packages 2100
and 2101 utilize the Triad Ram Control Cylinder.
Ram Cycling and Indexing Options
All systems are designed for
single stroke only. Auto Cycle allows the press to continue past
top stop as long as the operator has maintained foot pedal contact,
and stop at the Select-O-Stop position. AutoCycle may only be
used with a light guard, which will prevent the press from continuing
past top stop, if the operator has his/her hand in the die area
when the press reaches top stroke. Excellent for the production
of small parts on press brakes and workpieces with flanges.
When Select-O-Stop has been
turned on, the press will automatically stop at preset point,
which is normally set just above the piece part to be formed.
The operator then has to release the pedal and depress it to
continue the forming cycle. The Auto Retrip function will automatically
restart the press at that point, as long as the operator maintains
foot pedal contact. Excellent for large sheet forming.
While controlling the forming
speed of a piece part, it sometimes is necessary to fully engage
the clutch, just prior to the bottom of the stroke, to obtain
a desired radius with the die being used. Auto Form will bypass
the feed cylinder at that point, allowing full engagement of
the clutch and preventing the possibility of a stall at the bottom
of the stroke. Excellent for top end tonnage forming on press
Press will automatically return
to top of stroke after piece part has been formed. (Requires
additional limit switch) This feature enhances ram cycling.
