2.3. Bend programming

2.3.1. Introduction

The parameters of one bend are divided over 2 screen pages. The bend number, product number and drawing number are displayed in the top row on the screen.

CNC Press Brake DA52S Controller

The parameters below the line are corrections. They are not necessary when programming a product, but are used to correct the machine behaviour during production.

2.3.2. Bend parameters - first page

Method . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..BM
Select the required bending method. The control supports 2 methods:
0 = Air bend
1 = Bottoming

Bend methods:

Note:
When bottoming operation is selected, the end of bend position of the Y-axis beam is depending on the working tonnage. If however the force is sufficient for the beam to go to the
calculated Y-axis end of bend position, the beam stroke will be limited by the position value.

Angle . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .α
The required angle of this bend. This parameter only appears if angle programming is selected with the parameter ‘Angle sel.’ and the bend method is an air bend.

Bend position . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Y
The required Y-axis position for this bend. This parameter only appears if absolute programming is selected with the parameter ‘Angle sel.’ This parameter also appears if the bend method is bottoming and/or flattening.

Opening . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .DY
This parameter results in a certain gap opening between the punch and the die after the bend. A positive value is the gap opening above Mute, a negative value below Mute.
When you want to limit the handling time of the product you can program a small positive or a negative value.

Repetition . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .CY
0 = bending is skipped.
1 through 99 = the number of times this bending will be repeated.

X-axis . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .X
Backgauge position. When a negative sign is programmed this backgauge dimension is an incremental dimension. The incremental dimension is subtracted from the actual Xαaxis position. Therefore this parameter can also be used as a chaining measure.

Retract . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .DX
Retract distance of backgauge during the bending. The “backgauge retract” is started at the pinching point of the sheet.

Auxiliary axis . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..R/Z/Aux.

If you have one or more auxiliary axes (for instance a R-axis) the parameters of these axes appear here.
Code . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..CX

Programmable parameter which determines when the parameter values for the next bending will be active. The possibilities are:
0 = Bending number change (step change) at end of decompression (next bend parameters active).
1 = Step change at muting position when the beam moves in opening direction.
2 = Step change at upper dead point.
3 = Step change at upper dead point without movement of any axis and the control goes to “stop”.
4 = Step change if C-input signal becomes active, without movement of the beam. When
you still have a beam movement there will be no retract function of the backgauge performed. See also code 5.
5 = Step change if C-input signal becomes active and the beam is in the upper dead point. Now you may move the beam and the retract function of the backgauge will be performed.
10= Step change at end of decompression with the Y-axis beam waiting at the pinching point until the backgauge is at the retract position.
11= Step change at mute position when the beam moves in the opening direction, with the Y-axis beam waiting at the pinching point until the backgauge is at the retract position.
12= Step change at upper dead point, with the Y-axis beam waiting at the pinching point until the backgauge is at the retract position.
13= Step change at upper dead point without movement of any axis. The Y-axis beam will wait at the sheet clamp point until the backgauge is at the retract position. After the bending with this code, the control goes to “stop”.
15= Step change if C-input signal becomes active and the beam is in the upper dead point. The beam may be moved but not necessarily. The Y-axis beam will wait at the sheet clamp point until the backgauge is at the retract position.

The not mentioned CX-values have no meaning.

The control can be started from this view.

When pressing the ‘change view’ button again the first bend parameters page is displayed again.

2.3.5. All bends view

When pressing the ‘change view’ button from the general properties page of a bendprogram (Program tab) the list with all bends from the active program is displayed. Within this view all bends can be seen on one page and properties from each bend can be modified.

CNC Press Brake DA52S Controller

The control can also be started from this view.

When pressing the ‘change view’ button again the general properties pages is displayed again.

2.3.6. Bumping programming

For big radius bends made with ‘bumping’ it is possible to simple program the required data in a numerical program. First the operator can select the bend method:
0 = Airbend
1 = Bottoming
2 = Bumping

CNC Press Brake DA52S Controller

When selecting the bend method ‘Bumping’ the operator can program the following parameters:

  • Required bumping radius
  • Total bumping angle
  • The number of segments in the radius

The controller will calculate:

  • The number of required bends
  • The angles of the separate bends
  • The backgauge positions of the separate bends

The first bend has an absolute backgauge position; the other bends will be treated as chained bends with relative backgauge positions.

4.4. Program settings

CNC Press Brake DA52S Controller

Machine number . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .MN

When there are several bending machines in a factory, it can be useful to give the control on each machine a unique machine number.
The selected machine number will be stored with the bending program. This number will be checked when a program is read from USB key. When the machine number does not match you must confirm to read it anyway or not. If you do not confirm the question the action will be aborted.
The machine number is also stored in the filenames of tools. When the machine number is changed in this screen, you are prompted to make a new backup of your tools because the filenames of all tools have been changed according to the new machine number.

Angle correction database. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .CD

Toggle function, to switch the database with angle corrections on or off. Angle corrections are entered in production mode (automatic/step by step). These corrections are stored in the product program. Beside this, it is also possible to store these corrections in a general database with angle corrections. This way corrections that have once been entered for certain bends remain available for future use in other products. When this setting is switched on, the control checks during production whether corrections for similar bends are present in the database. If corrections for certain bends are available, then they will be offered. On other occasions, corrections can be interpolated and offered.

The correction database is adjusted by entering new corrections during production.
When the database is enabled with this parameter, all new-entered corrections are stored in the database.
When searching for similar bends, the control searches for bends that have the same properties as the active bend. The following properties of a bend are compared:- Material properties
– Thickness
– Die opening
– Die radius
– Punch radius
– Angle

The first five properties of a bend must be exactly the same as the active bend to start a comparison.
If an angle is found with the same value as the angle of the active bend, the correction is offered.
If no matching angle is found, the control will attempt to interpolate a correction from already existing corrections. To compute a correction, the following two conditions must be obeyed:
– If the angle of the active bend must have a maximum difference of 10° with two adjacent bends.
– The corrections of these two adjacent bends may differ no more than 5°.

Y opening default . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..13
Default Y-axis opening value.
The value programmed here is used as initial value for the parameter ‘Y-axis opening’ when making a new bend program.

Default X-axis code . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..XC
Default value for the parameter ‘code’ in a bend program. This parameter determines the moment of step change in a bend program. Initially the code parameter is set to the value programmed here during postprocessing and during programming.
The default value of this parameter = 2.
See chapter ‘program edit’ for more information about the code parameter.

Default X time. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..XT
Default waiting time for step change. With this parameter you can preset a longer waiting time when needed for product handling.

Deafult hold time . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..HT
Default value for the dwell time, the time the pressbeam stays at the bending position.

4.5. Computation settings

CNC Press Brake DA52S Controller

Data preparation bend allowance . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .BA
0 = correction off
1 = correction on
With this parameter you can choose whether or not you wish to have programmed values corrected for bend-allowance. This on/off setting only refers to corrections during product programming of a new program in the menu ‘program edit’. If a numeric program has been entered with corrections on, the axis corrections are calculated and stored in the program. These corrections can be viewed and edited in production mode (see ‘Automatic mode’).

4.6. Production settings

Stock count mode . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..SC
Setting for the stock counter in production mode, to have the stock counter (product counter) count up or down.
When downcounting is selected, the stock counter in production mode is decremented after each completion of a product. When the counter has reached zero, the control is stopped. On the next start action, the stock counting value is reset to its original value.
When upcounting is selected, the counter is incremented after each completion of a product.
Downcounting can be useful if a pre-planned quota must be produced. Upcounting could be used to give a report on production progress.

Pressure correction. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..PC
Percentage of calculated tonnages which actually controls the pressure valve.

Clamping correction . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..CC
The position of the beam at which the sheet is clamped, is calculated. In order to have a firm clamped sheet it is possible to offset the calculated pinch point with the value here programmed. A positive value will result in a deeper position, a negative value in a higher position of the beam.

X-reference correction . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..C1
When the actual, mechanical X-axis position is not corresponding with the displayed value than is it possible to correct the position with this parameter. Program the calculated difference.
Example:
– When the programmed and displayed value = 250 and the actual, mechanical position
value = 252 the XR parameter = -2.
– When the programmed and displayed value = 250 and the actual, mechanical position
value = 248 the XR parameter = +2.

Intermediate R for X-movement. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .RS
Temporary position for the R-axis, to avoid collision as a result of movement of the Xaxis. The value 0 disables this functionality. When programmed not equal to zero this position will be active when the X-axis has to move inside the safety zone of the die.

5. Manual mode

5.1. Introduction

In manual mode you program the parameters for one bending.

After pushing the ‘Start’ button all parameters are active and the backgauge will go into position. It is also possible to move the axes manually, see section 5.2.

5.2. Parameter Explanation

All the parameters can be programmed independently of the programs in memory.

5.3. Zoomed values

In this screen, the values of the controlled axes are displayed.

5.4. Manual operation of the axes

5.4.1. General

It is possible to move an axis by pressing the arrow keys on the front panel of the control. After pressing the key ‘manual pos’, the following screen appears:

Put the cursor bar on the axis you wish to move with the arrow keys. Then simply press the keys and watch the movement of the intended axis.

The procedure for moving the axis depends on the axis you wish to move.
– Auxiliary axes:
With the keys the backgauge can be positioned manually. This operation is only possible in “Stop” + “Manual Mode”.

First you select the respective backgauge axis with help of the “Manual positioning”-key, so that you will see the cursor bar at the required axis. Then you can move the axis with help of the keys.
– Y-axis:
With the keys the punch can be positioned manually in the same way as for the auxiliary axes.
This operation is only possible in “Start” + ” Manual Mode”. Furthermore, the following conditions must be met:
• The ‘adjust’ function must be active, indicated on the screen by “Adjust” in the lower righthand corner.
• The Y-axis must be below mute-point.
• A pressing command must be given to the CNC.

5.4.2. To teach

You can teach an axis a correct position within the manual positioning mode. When you have moved an axis to a certain position with the cursor keys, you may want to store this position.
To do so, press the ENTER key within this screen.
The actual axis value (left side) will appear in the programmed axis field (right side).

6. Automatic mode

6.1. Introduction

In the automatic mode a bend program can be executed automatically bend by bend after pushing the ‘start’-key. When a new bending program is selected you must check your tools and tool positions in your machine.
In the header information is displayed on the number of bends, the repetition of a bend, the product number and the drawing number.
Above the horizontal line the programmed and computed parameters are displayed.
The parameters below the horizontal line are corrections on the programmed values.
If the key lock is active, the program parameters (above the line) cannot be changed. The correction parameters (below the line) can always be changed.

6.2. Parameters

Select repeat . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .CY
Selection of one of the repeated steps of one bend. Useful if a bend has a repetition value larger than 1.

Corr α1. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Cα

Corr α2. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Cα

Corrections on angle values (Cα) in this bending.
Angle corrections can be programmed for both sides of the machine, Y1 and Y2. When correction α1 is entered for one side, this value is automatically copied to the α2 correction for the other side. The correction for the other side can then be changed.
When both angle corrections have been entered, the resulting corrections for Y-axis and parallellism are calculated. The corrections will be saved in the active bending program.

The angle correction should be entered as following examples indicate:
1) Programmed value of 90 degrees.
Measured value of 92 degrees.
Then it is required to program Corr. α with -2.

2) Programmed value of 90 degrees.
Measured value of 88 degrees.
Then it is required to program Corr. α with +2.
In case the angle correction database has been switched on, the control checks whether a correction exists for this type of bend in the database. The result of this check is prompted in the entry field:

No stored correction. No correction has been found for this bend
Stored correction. A correction that matches the current bend has been found
Interpolated correction. A correction has been calculated (interpolated) based on other existing corrections
If a correction is entered, it will be stored in the database. At each next bend with the same properties, this same correction will be offered.
See the chapter ‘Program constants’ for more information on the angle correction database.

Corr X. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Cx

Corrections on X-axis positions (Cx) in this bending. In case bend allowance is activated (see PROGRAM CONSTANTS) and a program has been entered in data preparation, the X-axes correction values are the result of bend allowance calculation. The corrections will be saved in the active bending program.
The X-axis correction should be entered as following examples indicate:

1) Programmed value of 200 millimeters.
Measured value of 202 millimeters.
Then it is required to program Corr.x with -2
2) Programmed value of 200 millimeters.
Measured value of 198 millimeters.
Then it is required to program Corr.x with +2

6.3. Zoomed values

When the function key ‘zoomed values’ has been pressed, the control switches to a new view with only axes values on the screen.

6.4. Manual operation of the axes

It is possible to move an axis by pressing the arrow keys on the front panel of the control.
After pressing the key ‘manual pos’, the following screen appears:

The procedure for manual movement is described in section 5.2.
