Frequently Asked Questions
I have a press brake with an OEM embedded LazerGuard system and require user manuals. Can you provide these?
OEM embedded LazerGuard systems are tailored to suit each manufacturer and custom integrated into the machine design. Functions, features, set-up and operation of the system will vary from one manufacturer to the next. For user manuals you will need to contact the press brake manufacturer or your machinery dealer for the information specific to your machine make and model.
