Press Brake Control
Mechanical Press Brake Control When Used as Punch Press

Package 2110
Control Panel Model 3400 SS (Solid State)
Description Control Panel Ordering Procedure

Package 2110 Control converts mechanically actuated press brakes to electrical foot switch operation and gives the press brake single forming speed when used as a mechanical power press for punching, piercing, notching or blanking operations. The control incorporates single stroke function with Select-O-Stop and utilizes an electric foot switch for machine actuation. Meets OSHA standards for control reliability & component monitoring and also incorporates brake monitoring.




Includes the following components

 No. UL-102 UltraTouch Modules (optional)  No. 300 Calibrated Switch Actuator (Activates Select-O-Stop)
 No. 301 Limit Switches (four)  No. 302 Guarded Foot Switch
 No. 303 Dual Solenoid Valve with Muffler  No. 304 Air Cylinder Assembly
 No. 306 Heavy Duty Pressure Switch  No. 311 Filter, Regulator, Lubricator

A proper point of operation guarding device is required when using the electric foot switch as the activating device. Refer to SuperLight VI Programmable Safety Light Curtain for proper guarding device specification.

Operational Description
Package 2110 allows the press brake to be operated as a partial revolution punch press. The controls meet all current standards for control reliability and component monitoring and also incorporates brake monitoring. The normal operating procedure is the same as a partial revolution punch press.

  • Operator inserts workpiece into the die area.
  • Operator clears body parts from hazardous zone.
  • Operator initiates the ram cycle.
  • Ram cycles and stops at top stop.
  • Operator then removes workpiece from die area.

Automatic Ram Cycling and Indexing Options
Auto Cycle.
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. Auto-Cycle 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 and workpieces with flanges.

Auto Return. Press will automatically return to top of stroke after piece part has been formed (requires additional limit switch). This feature enhances ram cycling.
