Whether you are a production or a jobbing shop, Fasfold saves you lots of setup time. If you do one off, quickly draw your profile up in quickdraw
Hafco MetalMaster Pressbrakes are manufactured for a worldwide market, they are used and accepted from first time user’s right through to established manufacturers.
MetalMaster Quality Pressbrakes feature high durability, and provide precision bending capabilities. The Pressbrake main frames are constructed from rolled, stress relieved solid steel to prevent distortion during the bending process and under extreme continuous loads.
MetalMaster Pressbrakes are produced in a high volume production process and therefore are able to be manufactured cost effectively, resulting in affordable price, representing value for money and quicker return on investment.
Featuring an adjustable synchronised torsion bar with positive stop system ensures consistent and accurate bending beam parallelism tolerance to 0.01mm via the digital Control unit.
All electrical components are off European quality supplied by, Telemecanique, Merlin Gerin and ABB. Hydraulic control units are supplied by Aron from Italy.
Fasfold 202 Pressbrake control Australian made and designed to maximise performance and increased production that leads to increased profits, so whether you are a production or a jobbing shop, Fasfold saves you lots of setup time. If you do one off, quickly draw your profile up in quickdraw.

Step 1. QUICKDRAW: How easy is this!…..
Simply touch the corners on the grid to draw the box to the left Press OK to return to the main screen
Step 2. Simply touch on the dimension or angle of the profile in the middle to edit the value on the pop-up keypad
Step 3. How good is this!…….. See the profile on the left for easy editing….. and the folding simulation on the right!
View the actual folding sequence simulation on the graphic of a Press Brake as you fold in real time or animation mode
Change folds from front to rear to optimise production
Step through the whole sequence without wasting time or material
This can be done on the Press or off-line in the office (For quotes on new jobs: This process can be used in minutes to assist in doing new quotes accurately)
Touch the “Automatic fold sequence” button or set the fold sequence manually simply by entering the sequence (1 2 8 7 6 5 3 4 for the example on the left)
Step 4. Enter material thickness and width
Step 5. Select the right tool and Die from the library and start production:
EASY JOB SELECTION
Select existing jobs from the library
Give the job a name and save for future use. A virtually unlimited number of jobs can be saved
Jobs open with all relevant data like bend sequence, material thickness, right Tool, Die and V, angle corrections, which bends was done from front or rear etc. This saves lots of setup time
Jobs can be downloaded from the office
Jobs can be linked to fold boxes easily
Each operator can have his own password with his own job library
Online help – simply touch the HELP button, then any topic for an explanation
Online help – simply touch the HELP button, then any topic for an explanation
Cad import – import files from AutoCad, SolidEdge, SolidWorks etc.
Box Mode – Hand draws a box quick and easily folds in one continuous process.
Powerful diagnostics which can be done very easily. Any device on the Press whether it is a switch, solenoid valve, motor or encoder is represented on this screen either as green or red. If you step on the foot switch for example, it changes colour. Within minutes all devices can be tested and any faults found
Hydraulic / Mechanical ram, synchronised positive stop design, ram stroke controlled by precision mechanical nut depth stops built into each cylinder. Electronically controlled by CNC FASFOLD Programmable control assuring accurate repeatability.
Parallelism is ensured by torsion bar that can be easily adjusted by clutch system.
CNC FASFOLD 202 programmable hardened ballscrew backgauge with adjustable height finger stops.
Segmented heavy duty 86° offset top punch is segmented for return bend clearance, complete with European style punch holder with an adjustable wedge clamping system for crowning. Intermediate clamp has safety key to stop punch dropping.
Multi vee (‘V’) bottom die is made from one 4000mm solid die block design to handle heavy plate, safety edge vee (‘V’) is incorporated in bottom die block.
Manual crowning system allows operator to adjust table bed to correct the deflection than can occur towards the centre of the pressbrake
Conveniently mounted control box on pendant for quick swivel and adjustments.
Mono-block steel frame design, welded then machined to ensure minimal bed deflection under load
Enclosed rear gate with micro safety switches complete with sliding rear door for easy access.
European style top punch and clamping system, allowing operator to change position of tooling to suit multiple requirements on complex applications. This feature ensures minimum down time, more productivity and results in reduced cost per finished product.
Sliding steel fabricated sheet supports enabling a wide range of material sizes to be aligned and supported at the correct required height. This feature is achieved with a “T” slot machined down the total length of the die bed; sheet supports are also adjustable vertically to assist in supporting material with return bends already folded.
Adjustable sliding blocks control the machines beam to provide desirable open height distance to the (slow speed) mute bending point. Operator adjustable locking knobs for quick adjustment, enables accurate repeatability and increased productivity.
Metal safety guarding surrounding the machine with rear sliding door fitted and micro switch ensuring operator safety. Clear access panels placed at each end of machine allows the operator to clearly view tooling and work piece during bending operation. MetalMaster specially design gates to suit Australian safety requirements.
Hydraulic MPA pressure gauge mounted on right side of support frame with quick adjusting pressure control knob allowing operator to accurately set the pressure required for different material thickness, incorporating with hydraulic overload protection.
