In today’s competitive market, businesses are constantly seeking ways to improve efficiency and productivity while reducing costs. One way to achieve this is by incorporating semi-automatic folding machines into your manufacturing processes. These machines offer businesses a range of benefits, including increased efficiency, greater versatility and flexibility, and lower costs.
If your business wants to increase efficiency and improve the quality of work, semi-automatic folding machines may be the perfect solution. These machines are a bridge for companies who may not be ready for fully automated machinery but still want to explore the benefits.
One of the primary advantages of using semi-automatic folders is increased operator efficiency. With less gauging and material handling, operators can do more work in less time. This improved efficiency leads to better quality work, as operators can focus more on the details of the fold rather than the logistics of handling the material.
Semi-automatic folders are also ideal for companies with parts that need to be flipped or require positive and negative bends. RAS Systems offers the XLTbend, a semi-automatic UpDown folding machine, which is perfect for these types of applications. This machine allows for precise bending and folding, making it an excellent choice for businesses looking to improve their processes.
Benefits of the XLTbend
RAS Systems’ XLTbend is a semi-automatic UpDown folding machine designed to be highly versatile and suitable for a wide range of applications. It is particularly useful for profiles, boxes, and panel bending, and is widely used in the door industry to form doors and door frames.
One of the significant advantages of the XLTbend is its ability to operate from both the front and gauging sides. This allows for increased versatility and maneuverability, regardless of the size or shape of the part being worked on. Additionally, the XLTbend interacts with our advanced Bendex software, which identifies the ideal part placement and bending programming, and uses its Virtual Navigator System to show operators exactly how parts must be placed on its gauging system.
The XLTbend is built with a manual tool setup, making it more affordable and an ideal option for those looking to explore automated part manufacturing without making a significant investment. Despite its affordability, the XLTbend still provides a high level of flexibility and meets the demands of a wide range of applications.
Finally, the UpDown bending and folding capabilities of the XLTbend mean that no material flipping is required. This reduces the need for additional handling and helps to improve efficiency and productivity. The XLTbend is an excellent choice for a versatile, affordable, and flexible semi-automatic folding machine.
