Bimba Launches IntelliPress™ Electric Bench Top Press

The IntelliPress is offered in force ranges of up to 3,000; 6,000; or 12,000 pounds of output force. Additionally, it is available in three configurations with varying degrees of electronic control integration – allowing for off the shelf operation, or component level configurability.

Bimba, an industry-leading innovator of pneumatic, hydraulic, electric, and vacuum motion solutions, has launched the fully electric IntelliPress™ bench top press to expand the possibilities of your factory automation applications. This press complements Bimba's existing hydraulic and pneumatic press families by offering all the benefits of electric motion (energy savings, dynamic force and speed control, an infinitely variable stroke, reduction in oil and associated hydraulic mess) at an affordable price.


The IntelliPress is offered in force ranges of up to 3,000; 6,000; or 12,000 pounds of output force. Additionally, it is available in three configurations with varying degrees of electronic control integration - allowing for off the shelf operation, or component level configurability.

• The base level IntelliPress model includes press hardware and the following options:
• Electronic Controls package featuring Mitsubishi allowing for a fully programmed and complete turnkey solution.
• Load cell option for closed loop feedback of pressing force

• Bimba can also provide fully customized and expanded models that go beyond just the press such as:
• Part loading and unloading automation
• Specialized process fixturing
• Custom programming to meet any special requirements


"The IntelliPress electric bench top press is designed to offer the user a very high degree of application flexibility at a low price point," says Ed Long, Product Manager for Bimba. "Companies today want more control over force, position control, and process speed than ever before. This new press is the right fit for those applications that are out of reach of small hydraulic and pneumatic controlled units and have previously viewed electronic press options to be too high of a price point to consider."

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
