A PREMIUM Press Brake with a ‘UNIQUE' frame construction, that gives up to 60% reduction in frame deflection during bend cycles, operator safety, excellent build quality, precision bending, the latest Press Brake technology

RICO PRCN ‘C Line’ Press Brake

Why choose a RICO PRCN ‘C Line’ Hydraulic Press Brake ?

Simple !! – A robust strong machine for Steel Plate Bending

UNIQUE FRAME CONSTRUCTION | The RICO PRCN ‘C Line’ Hydraulic Press Brake, the big brother to the
‘I Line’ model,  offers a ‘UNIQUE’ frame construction, this being a heavily dimensioned fabricated steel ‘H’ cross beam
see image opposite.

The [Y1+Y2] Hydraulic cylinders are mounted onto this ‘H’ cross beam,
not the Press Brakes end frames

This strong ‘H’ cross Beam allows the positioning of the [Y1+Y2] hydraulic cylinders inside the Press Brakes frame,
drastically reducing the deflection during a bend cycle by up to 60%, producing a consistent precision angle along the full bend length

RICO BGR back gauge !! | The RICO BGR is a market leading precision back gauge
offering 5 Automatic back gauge axis options – [X]+[R]+[Z1+Z2]+[X5]

The RICO BGR PRECISION back gauge is a box section construction with tensioning bars that ensure that there is no bowing along its length, therefore giving a maintained [X] axis precision of  [+or 0.03] irrespective of where the [X] axis fingers are positioned along the [Z] axis

PRECISION a RICO principle

[X5] axis what’s that ?

The only other Synchronised Hydraulic Press Brake we have identified with this H frame construction is the model ‘Hammerle’,
please check it out
,  when you see the Hammerle cost, for a very similar Press Brake construction, you will recognise the cost advantage of the
RICO PRCN Synchronised Hydraulic Press Brake
