The Benelux's trade show highlight - The TechniShow is a must for sheet metal workers

AMADA exhibits from 20.-23.3. 2018 once more at the Benelux Area's largest trade show in the field of production technology. Learn about newest methods in treatment and processing of metals, plastics and application of accessories and tools. As the last year's edition attracted more than 44 000 visitors, the producer should definitely put a big mark in the calendar. 

This year, AMADA is again to exhibit leading technologies and innovative solutions for your production. Get to know the proven technology for the broadest range of processing possibilities: The high quality HFE bending machine series - long-term excellence now coming with a fully network-capable 3i-controller in the context of industry 4.0. See the new standard in CO²-laser cutting: The LC ALPHA V, the specialist for thin sheet metal processing. Moreover, learn about AMADA's interpretation of industry 4.0 including external programming, smart machine controlling on your cell phone as well as cutting data storage in the cloud.

The highlights at TechniShow

Laser cutting with "white gloves" - LC ALPHA V is almost scratchless on sensitive surfaces

ALPHA V, a CO2-Laser with all comfort and material protection features a producer desires. As a fast, compact laser cutting machine with semi-flying optics, the LC-ALPHA series not only compels with extremely short piercing times but also with its high travel and cutting speeds. At any time, the adaptive optics precisely adjust the beam properties to the corresponding material. Even at high speeds or under plasma, the system always cuts reliably. The nozzle and lens quick-change system permit considerable setup time reductions since far fewer settings are required.

In accordance to the automation grade, even the lower surface can be processed without scratching and manufactured completely automatically, an enormous progression step speaking of cost saving and work load reduction for the employees in the production process. For the safe part removal, the opening angle of the work chute has been increased, and a sensor prevents possible damages through tilting parts.

The proven quality of the HFE bending machine series - with 3i-network capability

The HFE-series is by far the most proven bending series - backed with long years of successful use by our customers and continuous further development. Optimized with many years of expertise, the newest expansion level is now also smart factory ready and joins the family of AMADA machines running with the industry 4.0 inspired VPSS3i software solution pack. The new AMNC 3i-controller provides easy handling and connectivity in the production process. Of course, maintenance can done by remote service, planning and processing in exchange with the AMADA cloud. 

Apart from the useful features of the multimedia controller, the HFE 3i convinces in nearly any bending task with accuracy and low energy consumption. The Eco drive system continually monitors and self-adjusts bending requirements - providing benefits such as 20% less energy usage, reduced maintenance, less oil consumption, lower noise levels, and increased reliability. The Angle control and Angle measuring system Bi-S & Bi-L as well as the Delta X-finger, supportive while processing difficult part symmetries, ensure reliably process safety.

Smart Factory and its virtual prototyping software concept VPSS3i

Producers urgest need is certainly to shorten the production times as much as possible. AMADAs Smart Factory with the comprehensive software solution VPSS3i is an intelligently adapted concept for the production purposes. It provides the smart storage and retrieval of part parameters in a cloud, virtual prototyping and external programming to prevent production faults before they occur.
