It's ready to LEARN when you're ready to TEACH with
TEACH MODE

It watches and learns your custom moves Teach the bender your knowledge for difficult transitions between bends.
It's powerful - so it's really easy to learn and use  We've been told that our Teach Mode system is one of the easiest to learn and use. Of course, that translates into time-savings and increased productivity over the long-haul.
You can even enter custom moves without teaching Some prefer to enter custom commands manually, so we've made a way to skip the teach mode and enter them directly. It's your choice.
Edit custom moves after teaching is finished  You can even edit the learned custom moves to fine-tune them later. You can edit them manually or in Teach Mode.
Standard Feature on all CNC Bender ProControls Teach Mode is STANDARD on ALL CNC BENDER ProControl license formats. Upgrade to v12 and you will have TEACH MODE.

FAST and EASY to USE - Watch Your Productivity Soar with both DRAW and PUSH bending*

CNC Bender
ProControl and CNC Bender LiteControl software packages are Windows-based bender controllers.  CNC Bender software is designed to be the most flexible CNC Bender software anywhere.

*Push Bending is sold as an add-on option by our manufacturing partner - SMT Industries

POWER Example - Let a robot choose the next part - in real time!

CNC Bender
software is so powerful it can change parts on-the-fly based on demand in the cell.

POWER Example - Control the ENTIRE bend cell with CNC Bender software - NO PLCs NEEDED

CNC Bender
software uses multitasking to control an unlimited number of external processes - while the part is bending.

Automation Movie - 6.3MB - This movie shows a VB200 Loader / Unloader with a scribe detect, overhead gantry gripper loader, hopper, and magazine. The laser scribe detect is used to orient coping relative to the plane of the first bend.

HAND BENDERS

This is a VB50H hand-bender remanufactured by SMT using the CNC Bender Procontrol software.

 

 

LARGE BENDER

This Pines 4 (6" bender) conversion originally had no carriage.  SMT designed and added the carriage using in-house designers and Autodesk Inventor.  The customer was so pleased with this conversion and our support that they have ordered FIVE more.

Pines 4 Conversion Movie - 8.8MB

LOADERS

This SMT bender uses a Loader / Unloader has a seam detect, overhead gantry gripper loader, hopper, and magazine. The laser scribe/seam detect is used to orient coping relative to the plane of the first bend.
