42 Ton 24" Bed Bantam PM242 NEW PRESS BRAKE, 42 Ton x 2' MADE IN THE USA
New Atek Bantam 42 Ton x 2' Pneumatic Press Brake
Model: PM242 MADE IN THE USA
Bed Width: 32"
Ram Height: 14-1/2"
Max Back Gauge Depth:
0-19" Between Housings
21" Between Cylinders
(Note: Maximum back gauge depth is reduced by 2 inches when equipped with micro-adjustable gauge option.)
Max Speed @ Full Stroke: 20 SPM
Weight: 2,825 lbs
Adjustable Stroke Depth Control is provided by the screw stop for precise
repeatability. Raise the adjustable bed and shorten the ram stroke to maximize
productivity while reducing air consumption and minimizing the pinch point for safer operation.
Accommodate a Wide Variety of Tooling...
Adjustable Die Space handles numerous tool sets and reduces or eliminates
the pinch point. Per OSHA guidelines, a die space gap of 1/4" or less is not
a pinch point and provides the safest operation method. Loosen the bed and
raise or lower it with the large bed elevating screws. Leveling of bed to ram
is easily accomplished using this feature.
Select the Optimal Speed...
Ram Speed Control via an infinitely variable valve allows instant adjustment of
air flow to the dual cylinders. A minimum setting creates a creep mode for setup,
or select any other position to safely match ram speed with your job.
Give the Operator Full Command...
Safety Hooded Foot Pedal controls all ram motion. Fully depress control petal
for down stroke. Slightly release pedal to stop advancing ram. Completely
release pedal at any time and the counter-balanced ram automatically retracts to
the top of the stroke. For added safety, the ram retracts if air supply is removed.
The unique zero-backlash design with its +/- 0 position tolerance is more
accurate than any hydraulic press brake that uses switches, sensors, and valves
to stop ram motion.
Condition the Air Supply...
Modular FRL Unit is standard on all models to condition air supply to pneumatic
module with pressure gauge, adjustable flow lubricator module and a three-way
lockable shut-off valve. The valve is vented to relieve downstream pressure in
the off position per OSHA guidelines. Keyed padlock and lockout tag are
Select the Right Tonnage for the Job...
Variable Tonnage Control provided through the modular
filter/regulator/lubricator unit delivers twelve or twenty-four tons of ram force to
form up to 3/8" or 1/2" at maximum pressure. Lower the pressure to suit the job,
reduce air consumption and preserve tooling.
Use it Years Longer...
Atek's Press Brakes are recognized worldwide as proven performers giving
more years of service in the field than any comparable unit. The rugged lever
weldment absorbs torque generated by off center loads. Bed deflection is less
than industry standards. From the smallest shop to the largest corporation, the
Bantam name is known for dependable productivity.
Run Without Interruption...
Our fully Pneumatic Press Brakes require minimal service. Designed for
simplicity, there are few moving parts to wear out- no motor, clutch or brake to
maintain or replace.
Details that Count...
Every Atek Bantam is designed and built with quality and attention to details.
Ram guides are simple to adjust and provide years of service. All critical pivot
points are heat treated and equipped with grease fittings. Special bushing
material is engineered for high loads to support the rocking lever pivot shaft.
