Demo Video of Push Bending Changes

Advanced Tubular and SMT spent scores of hours thinking through the robot integration standards that we use and have derived a new standard called "Robot Type 1" for integration with both LOAD and UNLOAD robots.
See the Robot Integration Standard 1 page for details on this robot standard.
This new diagnostic tool is designed to allow experienced technicians to directly control ANY output on a bender. This is a very powerful feature that resides in the passworded Low Level menu in order to keep it from non-experienced operators.
View a video demonstrating the tool.
A new tab menu is added to the Manual page that allows operators to
- open and close the robot grippers
- send the robot to its home position
The keyboard now defaults to "append" mode when using the ALPHANUMERIC mode. Operators will no longer need to press the right arrow before appending text in the keyboard. (Note: The older default "overwrite" mode is still active in NUMERIC mode.)
CNC Bender now stops the update of CNC Processor from the Tool page when CNC Processor is in AUTOMODE. A message displays asking the operator to update CNC Processor again when in MANUAL mode.
