The Titan 25T is an affordable CNC press brake machine that is capable of bending/forming/punching/stamping metal plate and sheet metal. It achieves this by stroking the ram downward under hydraulic pressure to clamp the material between a matching punch and die set.It utilizes computer numerical control (CNC) technology to precisely control the bending process, allowing for accurate and repeatable results. Additionally, the Titan 25T utilizes a dual-hydraulic ram system controlled by AC Servo Motors with independent gear pumps and glass scale encoders that are custom-built by Langmuir Systems for this machine. The rams stay fully synchronized under load, allowing the user to bend at any location along the ram length. The Titan 25T combines ease-of-use with advanced capabilities, making it an ideal solution for those seeking to elevate their metalworking projects without breaking the bank. Reliable, efficient, and user-friendly, the Titan 25T sets a new standard in CNC press brake technology for small-scale operations.
The maximum material thickness that can be bent on Titan entirely depends on the material rade, the lower die width opening, and the thickness and width of material. To determine if a bend can be made on the Titan 25T, it is best to consult a Press Brake Tonnage Chart which provides an estimated tonnage needed per foot of material given the desired bend parameters. A general rule of thumb to follow when air bending is that the lower die opening should be, at a minimum, 8 times the material thickness to get a nice tight bend radius. So for example, for achieving a tight bend radius in ⅛” steel, you would use a 1” lower die opening. If your calculated bend tonnage exceeds the maximum 25T rating for your bend, you can select a lower die that has a wider opening which will lower the required force to make the bend. For a quick reference, below are some examples of bends that can be made on the Titan 25T.
● 22 Tons: 33” long bend in 1/8” Mild Steel using a 1” Lower Die Opening
● 25 Tons: 20” long bend in 1/4” Mild Steel using a 2” Lower Die Opening
● 25 Tons: 15” long bend in 3/8” Mild Steel using a 3.5” Lower Die Opening
● 10 Tons: 33” long bend in 1/16” Mild Steel using a 0.5” Lower Die Opening
● 25 Tons: 9” long bend in 1/2” Mild Steel using a 4” Lower Die Opening
● 25 Tons: 30” long bend in 1/8” Stainless Steel using a 1” Lower Die Opening
● 18 Tons: 33” long bend in 1/8” Aluminum using a 1” Lower Die Opening
The Titan 25T can bend a variety of metals including but not limited to carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, copper, titanium, etc.
A CNC Backgauge is an advanced positioning system used in press brake machines, including CNC press brakes like the Titan 25T. It is designed to accurately position a workpiece in place for bending, ensuring precision and consistency in the bend line position. Essentially it is the backgauge's job to automatically move its finger stops into position for each programmed bend so that the operator can use this as a 'backstop' to push the material against before bending.
As for the Titan 25T CNC Press Brake, it does not come standard with a CNC Backgauge. However, as an available add-on option, customers can purchase a purpose built 2-axis CNC Backgauge for an additional $995. This add-on significantly enhances the capabilities of the Titan 25T, allowing for more precise control and efficient operation, especially beneficial for complex and repetitive bending tasks. The integration of this Backgauge makes the Titan 25T even more versatile and suitable for a wider range of metal forming applications. Here is a good Video showing the coordination between the backgauge and the bending operation on the Titan 25T.
Let's say the operator wants to create a 1.25” flange bent to 90 degrees; once the bend is programmed, the backgauge will automatically move into the exact position to create this flange. All the operator needs to do is slide the material up against the finger stops, and push the foot pedal down to make the bend. The punch will first come down to Clamp the material in place, then the operator can physically let go of the part. After the clamp, the backgauge will automatically bump backwards to clear the material, and the punch will stroke downward to make the bend. If you have another bend that is programmed for your part, the backgauge will move into position to make the next bend.
The Titan 25T has been engineered in-house from the ground up including our own purpose-built electronics, software, hardware, and controller system. True to form, we benchmarked the industrial offerings to arrive at a product that packs a professional punch at a fraction of the cost— all without sacrificing accuracy and precision.
BendControl has two programming modes, Conversational Programming and Manual Mode. Conversational Programming can be used when the customer wants to create bend angles in sheet metal or plate. To create bends, a user first creates the desired punches/dies/materials and these can be saved for later use without having to create them each time. Then to create your bends, a user selects from whatever punch/die/material combo that are needed and then you enter parameters such as material thickness, included bend angle, backgauge position, etc. Then you can save this bend, and BendControl allows the operator to store thousands of unique bends. Then in the Run screen, you load bends. Here you can create programs of multiple bends and save these programs for later use. You can run the program in sequence once, you can run the program on repeat loop mode to keep making the same part over and over, you can have just one selected bend in the program bend once (or just that one bend on loop), you can start the program from any bend in the program, etc.
In Manual Mode, the user would specify the desired ram positional coordinate, and the machine would stroke to this position. One benefit to this mode is that Titan 25T can be run like a standard hydraulic press, but with automatic operation. For example, if the user has a job where they need to press-fit bearings into a housing, the machine could sit in repeat mode and make this stroke over and over again. There is even an option to limit the max pressure in Manual Mode to prevent damage to parts when operating in this mode. Some common uses for a press in Manual Mode include, but are not limited to, punching, stamping, bending, press fitting, coining, shearing, flattening, laminating, etc.
BendControl will do its best to create your bend angle given all the available parameters such as material grade, thickness, punch/die, etc. Due to variations and tolerance stack up of all these items, it's possiblethat the esulting bend could be a few degrees off from ideal. For example, when bending in an acute die set, if the material thickness varies across different lots, even a 0.001” material thickness difference can result in a bend that is 0.5 degrees different.
When first bending a new part, it is best to program a bend that is a few degrees under the desired angle. Then, after measuring this actual angle, you can input this information into BendControl and the software will compensate to make the next bend perfect. One great feature of BendControl is that individual bends (and any compensation) can be saved for later use. This means that a production job can be picked up a year later without having to mess around with any of the settings or bend comps. In addition, the Titan 25T has excellent repeatability owing to its use of high resolution glass scale encoders; once a bend is set, all subsequent bends will come in almost identically to the next.
The Titan 25T accepts any American Style Punch & Die tooling that does not use a safety tang. This allows users to source tooling from 3rd party sources that can be used with the Titan 25T. That being said, we understand that tooling can be excessively expensive on the open market. That's why Titan 25T will be available from the get-go with a variety of punches & dies that will accomplish 80% of one's bending needs right out of the gate. Like everything that we do at Langmuir Systems, these tools will be offered at unbeatable pricing, and made from the same grade and manufacturing processes as industrial punch/die sets.
As an example, an 8” long segment of a 60mm 4-way die typically costs $250+ on the open market. Langmuir Systems can offer this same tool for $50! Over time, we expect our tooling library to grow to a massive assortment of punches, dies , dimple dies, hole punches, hemming punches, etc.
No! Thanks to the glass scale linear encoders on each hydraulic ram, the ram can stroke perfectly synchronized, even under load. This provides a huge advantage so that you can set up different punches and dies at various positions across the ram.
Yes! Both sides of the ram are equipped with a Piezoresistive Ceramic Pressure Transducer that is always monitoring real-time bend tonnage at each hydraulic cylinder, and this tonnage load is displayed in BendControl. This allows the machine to never exceed its nameplate rating of 25 Tons, and to also not exceed 12.5 tons on any one cylinder.
Thanks to Glass Scale Linear Encoders on each ram, the positional accuracy and repeatability of the Titan 25T is industrial-grade. The ram positional resolution is 0.0002 in, and the positional repeatability is 0.0006 in. In addition, the system constantly monitors and works to ensure that both sides of the ram are stroked perfectly evenly so that full tonnage bends can be done nearly anywhere on the table.
Safety is paramount on the Titan 25T. As with any hydraulic press, it is extremely important that all safety precautions are followed by the user to ensure that dangerous pinch points are avoided. The Titan 25T uses two main safety peripherals to control the movement of the hydraulic ram. The first are the palm switches that are mounted on arms that extend out of each side of the machine. These palm switches must be activated by the synchronized motion of both hands in order to get the ram to stroke downward. Once the ram is in a position that a hand can't be placed between the punch and die set, the operator can stroke the ram downward using the foot pedal to make the bend move. In addition, BendControl has an integrated safety chime system that uses an audio alert to notify the operator any time that the ram is in a downward motion. The Titan 25T also moves the ram at much slower speeds when compared to large scale CNC Press Brakes which makes it safer for the operator to avoid a potentially harmful situation
The Titan 25T was designed to be compact and utilize minimal floor space. We recommend clearing at least a 4ft x 4ft area to operate the machine.
Yes, the Titan 25T is well-suited for batch production. Once a bending program is set up, the machine can produce consistent bends across multiple pieces with minimal manual intervention, making it efficient for batch and repetitive production tasks. Furthermore, the Titan 25T has clamp-style mounting brackets that permit the use of multiple punches along the ram length in the event that a given part uses multiple different punches/dies. The sweet spot for the Titan 25T is versatile prototyping capabilities, one-off part manufacturing, and small batch production runs.
One method that can be used is to create a splice every 33” where the future flange will be. Then each section can be bent using the full 33” width. After bending, the seam can be welded together.
Unfortunately the Titan 25T will only be available for shipment to the contiguous United States. International shipments are likely to be available only after all launch orders have been fulfilled first.
The Titan 25T runs natively on 240VAC, 50/60Hz, single phase with a 10A fuse. One great feature of the machine is that due to its low current draw, the machine can be run on a normal 120VAC outlet by using a step-up transformer. We will offer a step-up transformer as an add-on purchase if any customers need to run their machines on normal 120VAC power.
