Package 2120 is designed for the air clutch press brake that requires the controls to be updated to meet current control reliability standards. The controls are designed to meet these standards for forming operations and also for air clutch press brakes which are used for punching, piercing, or notching operations. Triad SuperLight VI can be added to this control to obtain proper point of operation guardings.

Operational Description
Operator depresses foot switch and ram descends at fast speed to Select-O-Stop position 1/4" above the workpiece.

Work piece is realigned or slow-forming mode of the press brake is actuated. At this time the point of operation guard is muted-out until ram returns to top stop position.
This control is designed to retain current press brake functions and to incorporate control reliability and component monitoring.

Select-O-Stop is a keyed function that is activated by the calibrated switch actuator which is mounted on the side of the ram. Select-O-Stop allows the operator to bring the ram down in fast speed to a preset position which is 1/4" above the material being formed and will automatically stop the ram. This gives the operator the opportunity to realign the work piece and then slow form the workpiece if desired. Select-O-Stop is a keyed function on/off on main control panel.

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 on press brakes 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.
