In industrial manufacturing systems, one often encounters situations in which motion in two, three or more hydraulic cylinders actuators need to be synchronized. The need for the design of a reconfigurable bending press machine (RBPM) control system prompted the research in the development of an automatic and synchronized system, suitable for the press tool operations, versatile in raising and thrusting of multiple- cylinders with odd numbers. The aim of this research is to design and develop a controller that will control all the modules of a reconfigurable bending press machine for bending box-type sheet metal components.
