Intuitive 3D Press Brake software solution

3D Interface for Better Press Brake Control

SigmaBEND AP utilizes full 3D simulation to maximize the speed, quality, and efficiency of press brake operations. The ability to interactively change programming parameters provides ultimate control. Verifying bending operations offline frees up valuable machine time, improves first-off reliability, and reduces manufacturing costs.

SigmaBEND AP Increases Accuracy, Reduces Scrap

Through detailed bend instructions, even a less experienced operator can confidently bend a part accurately the first time, while being fully aware of the tooling and bend sequence prior to the start of the program—reducing scrap and delivering further efficiencies to the shop floor.

SigmaBEND AP provides an automatic programming solution to reduce the bend bottleneck through increased accuracy, optimization of setup and tooling, and standardized programming and bend sequencing.
