• PRCB Standard press brake back gauge is the BGA.
Commencing with 3 automatic axis being [Y1+Y2+X]
‘Options’ of up to 4 additional back gauge
automatic axis, being [R+Z1+Z2+X5]

• PRCB press brake ‘Optional’ back gauge is the BGT
offering u
p to 8 automatic axis.
Please Note* 7-8 axis does require an upgrade of
the DELEM DA-53T CNC control
BGA Back gauge, 8 ‘axis positioning’ are all rack/pinion
[View the BGT technical specification to the right]

• Beware of relying too much on a lower bed deflection system, the ‘over use’ of a lower beam anti- deflection system does create a ‘banana’ effect over the bent length, Anti- deflection systems have a part to play in the bending, folding of steel, but they should be used as a ‘fine tuning’ tool

• 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 20mm 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
