Here at Van Guard, we are continuously exploring cutting edge manufacturing technology and how it can better optimise our productivity. As a Made in Britain manufacturer optimisimg our production processes is crucial to our success if we are to continue to compete in a market that relies on foreign third party manufacturing. After much research, development and testing we are excited to introduce the latest addition to our manufacturing capabilities – the Bystronic Xpert 40 and Mobile Bending Robot.

The Xpert 40 press brake by Bystronic is the fastest standard press brake on the market. Not only is it the fastest but it is designed for bulk efficiency thanks to the addition of the mobile bending robot enabling it to be operational 24 hours a day.

Bystronic Xpert 40 Mobile Bending

  • Energy Efficient - 30% less then other press brakes
  • Increased Production Volume - 24 hours a day capability
  • Faster Production Output - 25% faster than our other press brakes

As a proud British manufacturer and Made In Britain member with over 40 years’ engineering history, this investment allows us to continue our British manufacturing heritage for years to come. With the ability for the press brake to run autonomously utilising the latest in pre-programming technology, the efficiencies displayed in this investment will permeate throughout factory.
