Safe, Compact, Versatile, and Perfectly Equipped Smart BEC Bending Machine
Introducing the New Smart BEC Series of Energy Efficient Bending Solutions
Servo-electric technology:our experience in your hands:
ACCURL has launched its new BEC SMART panel bender, designed to satisfy the most demanding market needs. With an innovative design, this is the result of more than 35 years of ACCURL’s own know-how in the field of bending.
Automatic Panel Bending Solutions:
ACCURL BEC SMART Smart automatic panel bender has been designed with a modular concept, so that it may incorporate a large range of accessories and offer fully automated solutions.
The BEC Smart bending cell is a revolutionary bending solution thanks to the “safety integrated” concept that allows the operator to focus only on value-added operations, aided by visual devices and sound signals.
The Flexible Panel Bender bends the sheet metal with one universal tooling, able to bend various complex shapes.
Auxiliary tool system makes the BM a highly versatile bending equipment, allowing a wide range of special bendings.
Perfectly equipped for sensitive Bending Energy efficient solutions:
- With its easy to use control units, rigid body frame, perfect design, high efficiency, multiple tool usage solutions, connections.
- Compact Solution
- 100% Full Servo-Electric System
- Electrical Energy Savings
- Regular Production Independent From the Operator
The operator has only to load blanks and unload finished components while the BEC panel bender takes care of the rest.
Excellent dimensional characteristics:

Arm Hold Dual Rotate
The servo motor controls the movement of the positioning L-block, which is fast and accurate
Maximum comfort for the operator thanks to the lack of physical barriers and work surfaces that can be lowered to facilitate the loading of small or medium-sized parts.
Modular design allows incorporating additional systems to enable complete automation such as different loading and unloading systems or other ACCURL Sheet Metal equipment.
The frame adopts a high-precision temperature-controlled furnace, which is tempered, heat-treated, annealed and modulated according to the temperature curve corresponding to the material, which ensures the lasting stability of the overall accuracy of the machine tool.
Universal Bending Tools Proide
Example: Lugs on the outside of a box
Example: Lugs on the inside of a box
Example: Bend center section on edge of a blank
Example: Bend sections symmetrical to the centerline of the machine on edge of a blank
Sometimes for special production needs, such as panels with complex bending profiles, it is industrially necessary to use special tools such as AST.
Extra Bending Tools(AST)
The extra bending tools can be set up automatically in order to bend flanges or offset bends. When necessary, the tools automatically move to the correct position from their parked position, and process the sheet without using the remaining bending tools.
The AST tools are used to make bends along a broken bending line, or shorter than the side being bent. i.e., where individual sections of a blank edge need to be bent. This function can only be used on machines with AST tools fitted.
Extra blank holder tool
With additional upper blank holders, you can also produce very narrow profiles or components with formed sections near the bending lines. If required, the machine automatically swivels in the ENW extra blank holder from above. The available standard blank holders do not need to be replaced or modified for this.
Horn blank holder
Nestings with inner edges can be produced easily with the horn blank holders. The “horns” extend and retract automatically at an angle. This means that the upper blank holder can move downwards without causing a collision between the tool and the bend.
Automatic Tooling Change Section System
It uses universal bending tools which automatically adapt in-cycle to the panel geometry, without machine down times or manual retooling, allowing batch-one or kit productions.
Quickly and fully automatically, this moves, handles, grips and rotates the sheet metal throughout the whole machining cycle. It requires no manual interventions during the cycle. The operator positions the sheet metal on the worktable and collects the product after bending, performing only the loading and unloading operations.

Introducing the Robotic Bending Cell
ACCURL panel bender can be used in a robotic cell, either completely robotic, or when a robot and an operator can alternatively use the CNC machines.
Automation Electric Press Brake:
Thanks to the ACCURL Bending robot and automatic loading/unloading devices, the cell with two levels of automation – process and operation – is a reliable solution for unattended production, even at night.
- Panel Bender
- 5-axis Robot
- Pneumatic gripper
- Moving axis
- Loading pallet
- Centering table
- Turn-over table
- Stacking table
- Electrical system
- Safety fence
- Loader from a precentred pack.
- Cartesian feeder with controlled axes.
- Carousel unloader.
- Roller-surface unloader for pallets and crates.
- Un-intrusive machine integration with sensors to back gauge fingers and bending beam which follow the programmed sequence of the Accurl panel bender.
