New JMT Electrical Press Brakes are a path to a cleaner world!
Powerful and Eco-friendly
Due to the ever increasing demand worldwide to decrease our carbon foot print, and become as efficient as possible, JMT has developed a new series of press brakes, the EB Series all Electric Press Brakes. With the addition of these state of the art all electric press brakes for manufacturing, JMT will be firmly ensconced in the upper echelon of precision press brake suppliers worldwide. The new technology of all electric press brakes was created with one major goal in mind. The goal was to produce an all servo electric press brake which would reduce consumption of fossil fuels by at least 50%. Currently we are able to offer these highly sophisticated Eco-friendly servo electric press brakes in 3 sizes. The EB 2512 with a 4-foot bending length, and 28 tons bending force. The EB 5020 has a 6 foot 10 inch bending width with 56 ton bending force. To round out the product line up is the EB 10030 with a 10 foot 1-inch maximum bending length and 112 tons of bending force.
With some 60 years of experience in developing and producing highly complex metal working machines like press brakes shears and plate rolls, JMT USA is in a never ending quest to improve machinery capability as well as machinery quality. To that end, JMT USA has formed a partnership with a world class manufacturer of advanced “all electric” high speed press brakes. Our partner is a “certified manufacturer” who currently sells their machinery in nearly 40 different markets worldwide. We are pleased to be working together with a supplier who is considered to be one of the world leaders within this segment. Our partner has received several awards for innovation and advanced technologies in the design of their equipment.
JMT and their new partner formulated a business strategy to market high quality all electric press brakes in the U.S. that is based on the slogan, “Innovation Works!” Hence the two companies are committed to continuous innovation and improvement of their products and working methods. The product innovation extends to the outstanding design of the machines, combining efficiency with advanced concepts in an effort to deliver the most operational cost saving possible. With North America taking the lead in the world in ecologically friendly practices, especially when it comes to manufacturing, you are bound to keep many rules your worldwide competitors don’t. In what other way can we keep pace in the worldwide market? The not so obvious answer is, cut the cost of your consumables. More specifically energy, even more specifically than that, electricity.
Why would an emerging company invest in a servo driven all electric press brake? Because of the design intention, these new servo electric press brakes aim to save energy! With a complete departure from conventional press brakes, the new JMT USA “EB” style machines do not have a hydraulic oil pump. They don’t have any hydraulic valves nor do they have one drop of hydraulic oil. Since there is no complicated hydraulic system, there is no maintenance to perform in that regard. All electric servo driven press brakes no longer have one large conventional brushed electric motor, but rather run on four independent d.c brush-less motors. In this way the press brakes only utilize energy when the machine is actually moving. In addition to the on demand electric motors, these machine movements are kept extremely accurate with the use of oversize linear guides with 3 linear bearings per side. The motion of the upper beam is ensured by ECO-Drive drives with the following features. The drive consists of a ball screw, gear unit, and servo motor of high performance with overload protection. All components are dimension over-sized for long life durability and the drives are equipped with automatic lubrication systems. The bending depth (ram stopping point) is ensured by servo-motor controlled by the DNC. Because the new JMT EB series all electric press brakes are driven via brush-less servo motors and ball screws, machine movement is almost instantaneous. Add to that minimal reaction time a much higher ram speed and back gauge speed and a 40% faster production rate is possible.
In summation, add the considerable reduction in production time with the realization that these new all electric press brakes are not even running half of the time of a production shift, you will be able to then begin to understand a potential of 50%-60% savings in electricity costs over conventional press brakes run for the same period of time.
ECO Bend 2512
Our new JMT Eco Bend 2512 electric press brake concept is to minimize power consumption. This press brake is for manufacturing and is completely servo driven and the power consumption of this advanced press brakes is something to note. The energy consumed to manufacture a part is on the order of less than 40% power consumption of a conventional press brake of equal size.
ECO Bend 5020
Many benefits arise from this operational method. Since there is no hydraulic system within the new JMT “EB 5020” servo electric press brake, none of the activities that are required to maintain a hydraulic oil system are required for these all electric press brakes, minimizing maintenance costs. In addition to reducing maintenance costs, the predictable down time for performing these maintenance chores is never realized increasing the machines available production window.
ECO Bend 10030
The Eco Bend 10030 is the largest machine of all of our electric press brakes. At a 10-foot maximum bending length and 112 tons of bending force it’s amazing to watch this servo driven press brake bend a considerable piece of sheet steel and not make a sound. The energy consumed to manufacture a part is on the order of less than 40% power consumption of a conventional press brake of equal size. Due to the “on demand” servo motor driven concept these brakes utilize, the electric motors turn on and off and run only while needed. The bigger all electric press brakes get, the more money is realized as savings.
