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 ProControl and CNC Bender LiteControl software packages are Windows-based bender controllers. CNC Bender software is designed to be the most flexible CNC Bender software anywhere.
*Push Bending is sold as an add-on option by our manufacturing partner - SMT Industries
CNC Bender software is so powerful it can change parts on-the-fly based on demand in the cell.
CNC Bender software uses multitasking to control an unlimited number of external processes - while the part is bending.

CNC Bender Features
multiple-level radius stacks (any number)
expanding servo axis list (any number of axes)
expanding jog list (any number of configurable directional-valve jogs
Feed torque mode: 1 to 100% pushing behind bend motion
Teach mode (Teach the bender how to move)
Custom commands (Build commands on the fly for each bend)

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