Bending Cell by Prima Power – smart and productive

Prima Power BCe Smart introduces new principles for modern semiautomatic machines by innovating new technologies and by enhancing intelligence that combined with operator ability makes this machine easy to use and eliminates the margin of error.

Prima Power BCe Smart with its innovative servo-electric bending technology is the optimal solution for medium production volumes as well as for low volume or lean production. It guarantees precision and repeatability with a considerable reduction of maintenance costs.

BCe Smart’s compact layout and unique loading / unloading sequence guarantee high productivity and offer a very attractive investment.

The large working table that allows loading and unloading in a single sequence increases productivity. The machine is extremely easy to use and does not require skilled operators: thanks to the barcode reader and the ATC system its setup is automatic, it takes place in masked time and activates dynamic production queues.

The high ergonomics and safety levels are obtained through a series of features such as the absence of physical barriers for manual loading, warning lights and acoustic signals to synchronize the loading and unloading, and the additional interactive display that guides the operator in the working phases to be carried out, for example, the orientation of the pieces, etc.

With BCe Smart managing the entire production process is easy and efficient, thanks to the Open numerical control by Prima Electro, the Tulus operator interface and the Master Bend Cam programming system. The machine is also prearranged to be integrated with robots for the automatic loading and unloading.
