Folding Machine HK CNC

The complete work cycle parameters: folding angles, lifting height of the upper press beam and the backstop movements can be programmed to the memory.

Standard functions:

  • Rounded corner profile and open hem pressing.
  • Manual and automatic mode.

Software is installed on an industrial PC with Windows Embedded operating system. PC is connected to a Beckhoff TwinCAT PLC controlling the HK bending machine.

    Panel information:

  • 19” TFT touchscreen
  • Windows Embedded Standard operating system

VP5000PC software:


  • In addition to Standard profile library it is possible to create user libraries
  • Profiles are created visually in edit mode by touch to touch, by adding lengths and angles
  • Bending order and direction can be visually edited on the screen
  • Profiles can be added to and removed from the libraries
  • Profiles can be moved or copied from one library to another
  • Profile to be run can be selected from the library by touching the icon on the screen
  • Profile libraries can be imported/exported from/to another machine
  • Before run it is possible to set the quantity counter
  • Bending of the profile can be simulated and checked on the display before the run
  • Shape of profile can be changed by touching the profile table on the screen (angle, length, lift height etc.)
  • Running parameters for new materials can be created. For each material it is possible to create an angle correction table to eliminate the spring back effects of the material.
  • List programming mode. Profile information can be entered row by row using back gauge distances and angles (no simulation and profile display)
  • In Manual mode it is possible to set one back gauge distance and bend angle. Upper tool and bending beams can be controlled using joysticks below the PC panel.
  • Service-, lubrication interval- and operation hour counters
  • Service mode
  • Emergency stop switches
  • Emergency stop cable along the machine
  • Duty disable switch
  • Protection from upper beam pressing, laser sensor
  • Protection from edging unit/roll forming unit, ligth barriers
  • Area protection fences
