VIDERE OPERATOR SUPPORT SYSTEM

A one-of-a-kind technology that makes efficient, quality results available to press brake operators of all skill levels.

The VIDERE operator support system was developed to simplify press brake operations by clearly showing—right in front of the operator—functional process information that is both easily and quickly understood.

Support information from setup to processing is displayed in real time, real size, and real location. Setup and work handling that once required a skilled operator is now simplified by VIDERE, improving productivity by reducing bending defects and eliminating non-value-added steps in an operator’s daily machine interactions.

Your job shop handles complex challenges every day. With the VIDERE press brake controller system, you have everything you need to make sure that easy, reliable, cost-effective operation isn’t one of them.

REDUCED SETUP TIME

  • Because the shape, length, and install position information is displayed in front of the operator, it is quick and easy to understand for any skill level operator. Up to 80% reduction in setup time compared to a manually clamped machine.

FEWER MISTAKES

  • The bending simulation is displayed on the front of the machine and guides the part handling from both a front and rear view preventing mistakes of asymmetrical work. 
  • By displaying the work in front of the operator it eliminates unnecessary movement. The larger format display is easily readable by the operator.

IMPROVED PRODUCTIVITY

  • Reduced setup time, fewer bending mistakes, and less operator movement to the control to check the bending sequence or confirm dimensions equals more parts per shift of operation. 
  • Increased production with the same footprint of a stand-alone machine without the large budget for automation.

The VIDERE operator support system is available for the following Diamond BB series and Diamond BH series press brakes:

BB6020 BH8525 BH13530
BH18530 BH18540 BH25030
BH25040

CAPABILITIES:

  • Reduced setup time due to shape, length, and install position information is displayed in front of the operator in a 1 to 1 scale it is quick and easy to understand for any skill level
  • Bending simulation is displayed on the front of the machine and guides part handling from both a front and rear view, preventing mistakes for asymmetrical work.
  • Work is clearly displayed in a large, easily readable format directly in front of the operator, eliminating any unnecessary movement that could result in mistakes or inefficiencies.
  • Reduced setup time, fewer bending mistakes, and less operator movement to the control to check bending sequence or confirm dimensions equals more parts per shift of operation. Increase production with the same footprint of a standalone machine without the large budget for automation.
  • The machine becomes the teacher whether you are forming for the 1st time or unfamiliar with the press brake you can process a part guided by the VIDERE operator support tool. Practice bending by watching the simulation and have operators trained in hours or less. So simple a salesman can operate it.
  • Work status, parts in progress, caution signals, and other notifications can be visually recognized and understood from anywhere in the shop
  • Display additional support documentation, engineering notes, setup sheets, job travelers, part pictures, etc. Attach and precautionary documentation that is important to processing the part and the system will display information for the operator.
