Tornitrofa is a Portuguese subcontractor who has made growth a mission. Founded in 2000, it immediately stood out for its ability to respond to the needs of its customers. In less than 20 years, it now has 80 employees, 18 lathes and milling machines and a 6500 m² production area. The main customers are companies in the textile, transport and aviation sectors. The products range from ferrous, non-ferrous and non-metallic materials. High-precision components are tested in a state-of-the-art metrology laboratory. Tornitrofa has decided to expand its offering to include the sheet metal working sector with a reliable and innovative press brake.
This 250 ton, 4-meter press brake was designed for TCI Cutting, a leading manufacturer of waterjet and laser cutting machines with which we have recently signed a partnership. TCI benefits from the experience in the fabrication sector of our distributor Blecken.
The machine is equipped with Rolleri pneumatic clamping; it has a 300-mm stroke and a 500-mm daylight. The Delem DA-66T CNC controls the X-R-Z1-Z2 4-axis backgauge, and provides the TeleLink remote connection tool. We also supplied Delem Profile Lite TL 2D offline software, which allows the technical department to create bending programs and configurations, to be loaded directly into the CNC.
To ensure maximum angle uniformity, we have installed Gasparini’s real-time adaptive crowning. The ECO energy saving package, thanks to the inverter control, improves the performance of the machine while reducing consumption.
