Automated bending: robotic press brake cell

automated bending robotic press brake cell

When bending applications require high productivity, flexibility and precision, automated robotic bending quickly emerge as a better solution than manual bending operations.

As a consequence, JEAN PERROT, a brand of PINETTE group, has combined its extensive knowledge of industrial engineering with its expertise in sheet metal bending processes to design and offer automated bending solutions : the robotic press brake bending cell.


We propose custom solutions in order to respond to the specific needs of each client. Our automated bending cells are composed of the press brake MANEO Premium LCS (Single machine, tandem or tridem modes), robots (fixed or rail-mounted), accessories & additional modules according to client’s need.

Turnkey solutions

Press brake MANEO Premium LCS

JEAN PERROT CNC press brake MANEO Premium LCS regroups all our innovations in order to guarantee you optimal performances (high-speed, high-accuracy…) & unmatched ease of use:

  • Up to 2000 tons x 12 meters with individual machines and 2000 tons x 32 meters in tridem (when three machines are connected together).
  • Back gauges up to 12 axis
  • Hydraulic dynamic crowning system up to 800 t / m capacity
  • Motorized sheet followers
  • CNC press brake with DELEM numerical control devices
  • LCS angle measuring system:systeme controle correction automatique angle pliage lcs

This patented laser control system allows automatic bending angle measurement & correction (in real time). No matter how long the part might be, it ensures to obtain a very precise and high quality bending result.

This guarantees that each part is formed to the correct angle from the very first bend (and reduces costs and time due to trials).

The LCS makes possible production self-control and related traceability (control report generated for each bend of each part). If the LCS finds a bad part, the production line will stop and an alert message will be transmitted to limit losses.
