Pacific Press Technologies has a partnership with Automec to distribute these machines in North America.
The technology behind the CoastOne electric press brake is the “direct-drive system,” which uses servo motors directly tied to ball screws to administer force. This capability, in turn, offers an extreme accuracy of 0.000079 inches! By the term, “servo-electric,” it may seem hard to believe that these machines conserve more electricity than traditional hydraulic press brakes. However, CoastOne servo – electric press brakes are not running hydraulic pumps and heating fluids all day. These electric press brakes only use energy when in motion and conserve the energy otherwise.
C-Series: Electric Press Brake
25-50 Ton, 2.8 Ft. – 5.25 Ft. Bed
The C series are the smallest “fully electric” servo-driven press brakes found in the CoastOne electric press brake line. The C-Series machines feature 1 to 2 ball screws using a “direct drive System” to administer the force. Each ball screw is capable of producing about 25 tons of force. By using these ball screws in a “direct drive system,” it makes our electric press brakes very affordable compared to traditional hydraulic systems. They’re great for companies looking to free up capacity on their larger press brakes by having a compact machine in the shop as well.
For average daily use, the C9 machine typically consumes less than 1.5 kW. By eliminating the need for hydraulic oil, the customer benefits by eliminating the cost of expensive oil changes, spare parts, valves, and maintenance found with traditional hydraulic press brakes.
G-Series: Electric Press Brake
60-150 Ton, 6.9 Ft. – 13.4 Ft. Bed
The G-Series press brakes feature an “O-Frame,” as opposed to the “C-Frame” found in the smaller machines. The “O-Frame” deflects less than the “C-Frame” which is very useful for the higher tonnage and longer length machines. Due to the strategic positioning of the drives, the CoastOne G-Series electric press brakes come standard with an “automatic crowning feature.” Each drive independently varies the force, depending on the position of the material across the press brake bed.
Many “electric” competitors do not have this ability because they are using belts and pulleys across the ram, which don’t allow the machines to “pin-point” the force on the ram. Customers will also find HUGE electricity savings compared to traditional hydraulic machines.
