Camera Based Press Brake Bending Angle Measurement

A new module for bending angle measurement has been released for the camera-based protection system PSENvip 2 from Pilz. The system forwards usable image data to the press controller enabling the operator view the bending angle value directly on the user interface removing the need for expensive angle measurement systems and complex manual measurements.

Innovative Technology For Rugged Applications

The camera-based protection system PSENvip 2 monitors the whole bending process using innovative optics. When installed on the upper die of a press brake, the PSENvip 2 detects even the smallest foreign body in the protected field between the transmitter and receiver, enabling productive work practices in complete safety. Instead of a laser light source, PSENvip 2 uses an LED-based solution, in which simple illumination of the receiver along the upper tool is sufficient. Even under rugged application conditions, with vibration, reflection and external or diffused light for example, the protection system guarantees very high availability.

The camera-based protection system PSENvip 2 offers maximum safety for press brakes as a complete solution with the Fast Control Unit in accordance with EN ISO 12622. The complete solution guarantees faster processing, so a shorter overrun distance and therefore an even faster shutdown of the bending processes. Maximum productivity and simple handling make for an efficient bending process.
