JEAN PERROT - a brand of PINETTE industrial engineering group - is specialized in the design and manufacture of standard or custom machinery and turnkey systems dedicated to sheet metal working industry.

In order to respond to the ever-growing needs to improve productivity & operator’s safety, JEAN PERROT has combined its extensive knowledge of industrial engineering with its expertise in sheet metal bending processes to design and supply a press brake with stress-relieved bridge frame & automatic tool change.


JEAN PERROT semi-automatic bending center is a high speed bending machine specifically designed for high-volume production runs. This 250 tons / 3 meters press brake is equipped with 3 different types of punches and 3 different types of dies. With the performance of this machine, a part which needs 9 bends is ready in less than 75 seconds !

3 press brakes in 1 custom engineered machine

With the sheet metal bending center MANEO, even complex parts can be bend in one step: you save time & remove buffer stocks between 2 or 3 bending phases.

Indeed, the automatic tool changing system allows to efficiently use specific bending processes such as joggle bending or hemming processes. The operator just need to place its part following the bending sequence. 

Bending center MANEO is equipped with 3 types of punches & dies:

The press ram is equipped with 3 different lines of punches (height & profiles). Each line of punches is loaded or retracted by 2 hydraulic cylinders and the vertical movement is ensured by a ball bearing system for great speed & precision.

The lower table is equipped with 3 different line of dies (1 bend 90°, 2 joggle bends). Each die is associated with one punch. Dies move horizontally and automatically, according to the bending sequence. For perfect guidance over time, the bed is mounted on bronze alloy rails with graphite-inserts.

Features of the bending center MANEO:

  • Stress-relieved bridge frame
  • 2500 T / 3 meters
  • CNC press brake with ESA GV numerical controls
  • hydraulique dynamic crowning
  • 3 axis back gauge (X, X2, R)
  • Pneumatic stripperscomplex part high speed bending press brake
  • Front light beam devices to ensure operator’s safety / punch movement
  • Latest Lazersafe operator protection system with 2 positions according to the height of punches.
  • Approach speed : 275 mm / s
  • Work Speed : 18 mm/s
  • Automatic tool changing for 3 complete lengths of punches
  • Automatic tool changing for 3 complete lengths of dies
