Offline Controls

Virtual bend sequencing and bend simulation software

The DA-Offline software maximises machine efficiency and production output of press brakes. VBend offers the offline solution for programming your pressbrake, post processing the programs and simulation of the actual bending process.

Product programming, make-ability checks, tool preparation and many more can be carried out offline.

The VBend suite includes bend sequence calculation and modification in the main program completed with either a graphical product programming or multiple import converters for externally developed designs. This in 2D as well as 3D CAD file formats.

The simulation integrated in VBend shows the user the bending process on an accurate model of the used press brake. With the simulation even the latest dynamical collisions and practical production issues can be optimised in the design stage.

After finishing, a product can easily be transferred to a machine for production.In VBend multiple press brake models can be used, for a complete production environment.
