The GSG sheet metal bending department

The GSG sheet metal bending department is a fundamental department within the production cycle.

In fact, every year we invest in the most cutting-edge technologies to guarantee our customers the most suitable solution for processing their products.

In 2021 we inserted new systems, paying strong attention to automation and optimized the layout of the sheet metal bending department.

Below we will list the machine park of the updated sheet metal bending department.

PRESS BRAKES

In recent times, the partnership between GSG and the Swiss manufacturer Bystronic has been increasingly strengthened, having been investing in the technological development of its machine fleet for years.

The press brakes in the sheet metal bending department are equipped with dynamic crowning. This extraordinary compensation system automatically adapts the camber of the lower board during folding. The latest generation dynamic crowning performs this correction in real time and with cutting-edge sensors. This way operators achieve consistent bending results.

All GSG press brakes have the following advantages:

  1. Maximum positioning precision and speed
  2. Easy machine programming thanks to the use of modern CAD/CAM software: Bysoft 7
  3. Significant savings in design time

AUTOMATIONS FOR PRESS BRAKES

Systems for the automation of the bending process.

MOBILE BENDING CELL

Mobile automation for high-speed bending. Fold large series automatically. It is used on the Xpert 40/80 press with the Plug&Bend principle: just a few minutes are enough to prepare the Mobile Bending Robot on the presses. Despite the automation, the entire installation remains compact and flexible.

ANTIL BYSTRONIC

Automation with Cartesian robot for the press bending process. Robot suitable for bending medium/large sized panels or components. It can work in total autonomy even unattended. Max length: 3000mm Max load: 120kg

ROBOTIC BENDING

GSG has two fully automatic sheet metal bending systems.
The main advantages of robotic bending are:

  1. High degree of automation during the bending phase thanks to the fully automatic collet and tool change
  2. Time saving and accurate production without human intervention
