Diamond BB Series

These compact, cost-efficient press brakes are the best choice for quick, quiet, high-quality work.

Featuring an AC servo motor and ball screw mechanism for high-speed productivity and repeatability (± 0.001mm)—brought to you by the originators of the world’s first electric press brake—the BB series ball screw press brake is the reliable, cost-efficient answer for accurate repeat bending work.

But the BB series is more than just a press brake workhorse. Equipped with on-board diagnostics capabilities and an intuitive CNC interface, these electric press brakes are as good for your business as they are for your operators. Quiet operation, environmentally clean, and easy to use, the BB series is the crown jewel of any bending department.

INDUSTRY-LEADING RELIABILITY & UPTIME

  • The electric AC servo motor and ball screw drive mechanism isn’t just fun to say. It achieves performance that outclasses other electric and hybrid press brakes, all while ensuring long-term accuracy and minimum internal wear. The result? A machine you can trust to keep doing everything you need it to, day after day.

COST-EFFICIENT OPERATION

  • Form complex parts easily and cost-efficiently. The BB series is built from the ground up to deliver the best results with the fewest required resources. It’s soft on electricity consumption but still tough on any project your shop can throw at it.

MAXIMUM RESULTS, MINIMUM EFFORT

  • An easy, intuitive 22” color multi-touchscreen running Windows makes everything from day-to-day operation and programming to 3D simulation simple and quick. That means that this machine has the potential to achieve peak performance in nearly any scenario under any operator. Finally—simple, stress-free functionality.

CAPABILITIES:

  • The upper beam drive system enables high-speed movement and incredible ram repeat-stop accuracy all with the industry’s fastest cycle time 2.1s.
  • The high-speed, high-precision back gauge has a four-micron positioning accuracy for uncompromising product quality thanks to Mitsubishi motor technology.
  • As an electric press brake, the BB series causes minimal noise and uses no oil, making it friendly to both your working environment and the environment at large.
  • With automatic thickness detection & compensation, angular irregularities are minimized due to material thickness with no added options or external measurement device needed; the BB series holds tolerances some machines can only hope to do with angle measurement systems
