MERLIN 4000 PRESS BRAKE GUARDING SYSTEM

 
 

ISB is pleased to introduce its latest MERLIN Press Brake Guarding System, the Merlin 4000.  The MERLIN 4000 operates exclusively with ISB's MX Safety light curtain columns that are CE certified by TUV for Type 4 Functional Safety. By utilizing our Type 4 Safety Light Curtain with dense beam spacing spanning across the entire machine and having it constantly communicate with a powerful microprocessor-based HMI, we can accurately learn the proper location and size of the part’s flanges throughout the entire bending process. Making very complex parts with numerous steps is not a challenge for ISB’s latest Merlin Press Brake Guarding System, and it will learn the part profile in the same amount of time it takes to make a sample part and will store this digital pattern in its memory. The processor will use this stored digital pattern and compare it to the actual conditions for each step of future part fabrication and only allow the press brake to operate if the part is the correct size and properly positioned for each step. Once the job is learned, its job information for all steps will be stored and can be recalled the next time you run the same job.  

The Merlin 4000 design utilizes an industrial grade 7 inch touch screen HMI Controller with step-by-step operator prompting messages in English, Spanish and French for easier use. Each controller allows for nearly unlimited job storage, as well as back-up and restore capability using a USB Memory Stick, making this today's most advanced press brake guarding system.   

This new system is designed to easily upgrade our older Merlin installations produced over the past 25 years with minimum effort and easily retrofits on new installations of all types of press brakes.
