JMT Small Series CNC Hydraulic Press Brakes

JMT Small Series CNC Hydraulic Press Brakes


What’s in a small press brake? It’s been said that “the little guys sometimes punch well above their weight class.” Such is the case with JMT USA’s brand new ADR 1260 4 foot press brake. This new addition to the JMT USA press brake lineup has nothing to be humbled about when compared to its larger brethren. Just because this machine has a demure stature don’t let that fool you. The ADR 1260 is a heavy weight in its own size class, if you were to compare the components of this machine to press brakes of considerably larger capacities, what you would realize is this is a small press brake made out of big press brake parts! As with all JMT USA press brakes, quality is built in from the ground up. Continuing on with JMT’s philosophy of building quality into the machine, the ADR 1260 press brake starts with a stress relieved machine base finished milled on 5 axis machining center. Linear rails for all moving components of the brake as inconsequential as material support arms and back gauge fingers are standard on this feature packed machine. Inverter controlled servo motors for all main moving components like the rams and back gauge are also included on this model. Accuracy has not been sacrificed in favor of price. The ADR 1260 maintains a plus or minus 4 ten thousands (+- .0004) ram positioning accuracy, just like its big brothers.

As the ADR 1260 has a bending length of 4 feet 1 inch what you end up with is a power house of capabilities that doesn’t take up much more floor space than a large air compressor! With 66 tons of bending force, you can imagine the ability to bend a fairly thick sheet at 4 foot wide with the capabilities to bend even thicker sheet at less than full working width. This machine comes standard with a CNC Controlled X Axis Back Gauge, Euro/American Style Punch Clamp, Rear Work Light, Sliding Front Sheet Supports (2) with a Linear Rail, and a Dual Palm/Foot Station w/ Selector Switch.

Think all the good stuff stops there? It doesn’t. In addition to what we have listed above, add the brand new DT-10 C N C controller. Through many phases of development and improvement JMT USA is now proud to be able to provide the DT-10 controller to this small but formidable press brake. This will make the ADR 1260 the undisputed world champion of profit to cost ratio of any press brake in this size range. The DT-10 controller was designed to be very easy to use, completely intuitive, comes with a 10.1 inch LCD touch screen display, can download to or be backed up from a USB source. The DT-10 also incorporates 2 “D” graphics with step by step picture instructions so the operator will know when to flip or turn the work piece. This new controller will also recommend a bend sequence to the operator once the piece part dimensions have been loaded into the memory. The DT-10 is also capable of storing punch and die information into the memory right alongside the piece part input. As you check out the specifications below notice the extensive control of every machine movement on the ADR 1260 which is now programmable, courtesy of the new DT-10 C N C controller.

Safety has not been ignored on JMT USA’s ADR 1260, a simple laser finger guard aligned to the punch tip will help prevent operator safety issues that may otherwise occur.

So, what is the upshot of all this accuracy and technology? A extremely robust 4 foot press brake, built to go the distance that is capable of producing accurate parts for years to come. When your intent is to buy a press brake once to produce high quality parts, your choice is A.W Miller


The foundation of all JMT press brakes is a solid, mono-block frame made from mill certified, high-yield steel. As a result, JMT press brakes perform accurately and reliably year after year. We’re so confident in our frames that we offer a 10-year warranty with our standard machines.

Dual hydraulic cylinders located on either side of the ram provide faster approach speeds. The cylinders are synchronized to provide smooth motion resulting in precise ram positions to accuracies of .0004″



JMT press brakes can easily accommodate parts with deep bends and that require long tooling because of our open space design. Our machines typically have deeper throat depths, larger daylight spaces and longer stroke lengths than any manufacturer in the market.

We’ve also mounted the RAM GUIDING on the outside of the frame to maximize the distance between the side frames so our press brakes can accommodate deep part flanges.


Because of the versatility of press brakes and their uses, safety at the point of operation is the responsibility of the owner and operators. JMT offers the ram-mounted AKAS-LC Safety Light Guard. Located at the bending level and based on the location of the punch tip, this system helps prevent injuries. Transmitter and receiver are fixed to the ram of the machine and form a laser-optical safety light grid that follows the ram or punch tip.
