Autobend Backgauges and Controls

Autobend - Metal Fabrication

Autobend Backgauges

Our wide range of backgauges suits a variety of applications for up-acting and down-acting press brakes. The Autobend gauges work with either the Autobend 7 or Autobend 6 control to make your press brakes smarter. Take the next step by using a 3-axis system, which results in a 40% reduction in setup time when compared to a 2-axis system. Both 2-axis and 3-axis Autobend gauge systems reduce run time and material handling while increasing production capacity.

Autobend Controls

Sophisticated, high-tech controls don't have to be hard to use, and the Autobend controls prove it. They're easy to learn and simple to operate. Autobend control technology is ideal for a broad range of retrofit and new press brake applications.
