​It watches and learns your custom moves

Teach the bender your knowledge for difficult transitions between bends.

It's powerful - so it's really easy to learn and use ​

We've been told that our Teach Mode system is one of the easiest to learn and use. Of course, that translates into time-savings and increased productivity over the long-haul.

You can even enter custom moves without teaching

Some prefer to enter custom commands manually, so we've made a way to skip the teach mode and enter them directly. It's your choice.

Edit custom moves after teaching is finished

You can even edit the learned custom moves to fine-tune them later. You can edit them manually or in Teach Mode.

Standard Feature on all CNC Bender ProControls

Teach Mode is STANDARD on ALL CNC BENDER ProControl license formats. Upgrade to v12 and you will have TEACH MODE.

CNC Bender Videos

HAND BENDERS
This is a VB50H hand-bender remanufactured by SMT using the CNC Bender Procontrol software.

LOADERS
This SMT bender uses a Loader / Unloader has a seam detect, overhead gantry gripper loader, hopper, and magazine. The laser scribe/seam detect is used to orient coping relative to the plane of the first bend

LARGE BENDER
This Pines 4 (6" bender) conversion originally had no carriage.  SMT designed and added the carriage using in-house designers and Autodesk Inventor. The customer was so pleased with this conversion and our support that they have ordered FIVE more.
