Hydraulic Press Brake Synchronized - Commencing with 4 Axis [Y1+Y2+X+R] RICO PRCN - Models I Line + C Line

Please Enquire

Hydraulic Press Brake

Hydraulic press brake, synchronised
precision metal 
bending machine
for sheet metal bending – steel plate bending,
sheet metalwork – steel fabrications

Hydraulic Press Brake – RICO model PRCN
has a ‘Unique frame construction’ giving up to 60% reduction
in frame deflection during bend cycles

Available capacities: 70 to 500 tons – 2100 to 4100 mm bending lengths

The PRCN hydraulic press brake specification commences with:
The ‘Standard’ RICO BGR backgauge –  4 automatic axis,
the axis being [Y1+Y2+X+R] – 
plus 2 manual axis being [Z1+Z2]
with the ‘Option’ of increasing up to 7 automatic
back gauge axis, the additional extra 3 ‘Optional’ axis being [Z1+Z2+X5]

The ‘Optional’ RICO BGT backgauge offers 6 automatic axis,
being [X1+X2+R1+R2 Z1+Z2]

The ‘Standard’ CNC controller is the
DELEM DA-66T – 17″ Touch Screen’
offering control of up to 8 automatic axis
supplied with Profile TL offline software
Controller demo, no problem – just ask !

Laser operator frontal guarding is FIESSLER AKAS II-F
Rear entry protection – light curtain

Many operator friendly ‘production enhancing’ ancillary equipment options, take a look !

Manufactured in Portugal by RICO

Hydraulic Press Brake
Why choose this RICO PRCN Hydraulic Press Brake 

Operator safety, reliable performance of precision metal bending,
multi axis high speed options
, quality European build, premium brand
electrical and hydraulic components, 2 year warranty, reliable ongoing technical support from our service team.

• UNIQUE  FRAME CONSTRUCTION – Whats that about !!

The RICO PRCN hydraulic press brake, offers a ‘Unique’ frame construction, this being a heavily dimensioned fabricated H structure cross beam, the [Y1+Y2] cylinders are mounted onto this cross beam, within the Press brakes end frames, therefore drastically reducing deflection during a bend cycle. Whereas other hydraulic press brakes manufacturers  position the hydraulic cylinders [Y1+Y2]
onto the end frames.

Consequently the this ‘Unique’ frame with this strong fabricated H section cross beam reduces deflection during bend cycles by up to 60%, thus producing a consistent precise angle along the folded length.

The only other Hydraulic Press Brake manufacturer we know with this ‘Unique’ frame construction is Bystronic, the model ‘Hammerle’, please check it out,
you will be staggered at the Bystronic Hammerle cost, then you will realise the quality plus cost advantage of the RICO PRCN Hydraulic Press Brake

The Hydraulic Press Brake frame structure is manufactured with steel S275. Frame sections subjected to the higher bending forces are manufactured from a higher yield steel, S355 JR J2 (+ N). Only certified high quality steel is used in all RICO Hydraulic Press Brake frames.

DELEMCYBELECESA CNC control, your choice.
Options of up 
to 8 automatic axis, ancillary equipment,
offline software. Interested in a CNC Controller demo?,
Any controller, no problem, just ask

• CNC programming assistance after installation,
no problem
UK telephone support available,
‘freely’ available now and for the future

• PRCN Standard hydraulic press brake back gauge is the BGR, constructed using a rectangular box section, with internal tension bars that ensure no box section deformation, giving 0.03 mm accuracy of each individual back gauge finger in relation to the tooling bend
centerline, where ever it’s positioned on the [Z] axis

Commencing with 4 automatic axis being [Y1+Y2+X+R]
‘Options’ of up to 3 additional back gauge
automatic axis, being [Z1+Z2+X5]

• Standard back gauge BGR
[X] Axis – linear guides, ‘ball screw’, brushless motor
[Z] Axis – linear guides ‘rack & pinion’, brushless motor
[R] Axis – linear guides, ‘rack & pinion’, brushless motor
[X5] Axis – linear guides, ‘ball screw’, brushless motor

Hydraulic Press Brake metal folding machine - BGT 6 axis back gauge

Hydraulic Press Brake metal folding machine – BGT 6 axis back gauge

• ‘Optional’ back gauge is the BGT
offering up to 6 automatic back gauge axis. [X1+X2+R1+R2+Z1+Z2]
BGT Back gauge 6 ‘axis positioning’ all rack/pinion
[BGT technical specification to the right]

• Beware of the ‘over use’ of a lower beam anti- deflection system creating a ‘banana’ effect on the bend length, Anti- deflection systems
have a part to play in the bending of steel, 
but they should be used as a ‘fine tuning’ tool

Other advantages of the RICO PRCN ‘Unique’
frame construction are:

• High tonnage loading over short bend lengths, up to 200 tons per metre, this is possible when the top tooling is mounted directly into the top beam, using a 20 mm top beam & top tool off set location.

Many other hydraulic press brake manufacturers
cannot match this top beam loading.

• European quality build at the RICO factory in Portugal,
the press brake is equipped with reliable and proven electric & hydraulic components, that are generally also easily available in the UK

• Green credentials ‘Standby Function’,
the main motor automatically turns off
after 5 minutes of inactivity

Finally on a ‘like’ for ‘like’ technical specification with any of the Press Brake manufacturers who currently
might be under your consideration, a RICO PRCN Hydraulic Press Brake will prove to be outstanding value for your money.
Remember! ‘like’ for ‘like’ technical specification comparison.
