Is it Delem 58T, 66T, or maybe 69T? In this article you will learn the differences between the most popular controllers from the Dutch manufacturer. We will analyse together and find out how to choose the most suitable system that is based on standard configuration and extra functions. You can find press brakes with Delem controllers in our Otinus offer.
As technology and science constantly go forward, the systems of numerical control have allowed press brakes to move to another level. Convenient operation, as well as the application of the set of numerical control functions, DELEM has become the most frequently chosen system for high-quality press brakes. The manufacturer offers the whole gamut of models including DA-52S, DA-53T, as well as three models we will discuss in this article: DA-58T, DA-66T oraz DA-69T. In the next part we will discuss the differences and functions of those three in a sequence as listed above.
Delem DA-58T controller is a modern and exhaustive solution for 2D graphical control dedicated to press brakes. Its 15” colour TFT screen of high resolution that includes a multitouch industrial technology ensures access to the reliable Delem user interface. The interface allows the direct navigation between the programming mode and real production.
The buttons are located exactly where they are necessary to be, and therefore provide an optimised ergonomics in each aspect of machine regulation. The application of improved ergonomics ensures that test bending processes are reduced to minimum. Moreover, thanks to easy and fast programming, the programmes are generated with a single click.
This solution makes you ready to make parts immediately as all the axis positions are calculated automatically and the bending sequence is simulated using both the machine and tools in the real scale. DA-58T offers an option of 2D programming, including automatic estimation of bending sequence and collision detection. DA-58T manufacturing mode assists the operator via a graphic simulation at the same time providing them with guidance when operating the press brake. Standard features of the controller include steering Y1, Y2 and X axes. The backgauge is steered in R and Z axes. The crowning is a standard feature.
A new generation of DA-Touch offers higher efficiency in programming, operating and controlling contemporary press brakes. Straightforward operation teams up with the most advanced technology resulting in increased productivity. The touch screen ensures access to a reliable Delem user interface and allows the direct navigation between programming and production modes. The buttons are located exactly where they are necessary to be, and therefore provide an optimised ergonomics in each aspect of machine regulation.
DA-66T offers an option of 2D programming, including automatic estimation of bending sequences as well as detection of collision. The controller features full configuration of a 3D machine model including tool multi stations that provide feedback instructing the operator if a part can be made or where it is located.
Compared to the previous model, Delem DA-66T has moved the system of numerical control to a higher level.
All these features contribute to the fact that this controller is very popular among users of our press brakes. DA-66T is a very economical system that will surprise everyone with its accuracy and multitude of functions!
The DA-69T model offers the highest efficiency in programming as it contributes to a high level of contemporary press brakes. The controller allows maximum productivity. The interface allows the direct navigation between the programming mode and real production. The button layout proved by Delem ensures that the options are located exactly where they are necessary thus offering an optimised ergonomics regarding the whole software.
DA-69T offers an option of 2D programming, including automatic estimation of bending sequence and collision detection. The controller features full configuration of a 3D machine model including tool multi stations that provide feedback instructing the operator if a part can be made or where it is located. Highly-effective algorithms for steering operation optimise working cycle and minimise the configuration time. This solution facilitates using our press brakes as the DA-69 controller enables programming in 3D that is easier to use compared to DA-66T possibilities.

If you specified the working area and pressing force of your press brake – that is necessary to accomplish the most demanding parts – it is worth thinking about the controlling system that will not limit your possibilities. Below, we compare advantages and disadvantages of listed Delem controllers. Each of the presented controllers allows for unrestrained bending using Otinus press brakes.
DA-58T controller allows utilising the most important functions of our press brakes, and it will be enough for most of basic applications. As an operator, you will not have any influence on the panel layout to tailor it to your preferences. If you are sure what parts you will produce and you do not plan to manufacture very complex parts, this model is best for you.
If you need to maintain more complex parts at your plant including oblique bending (X1, X2 axis movement required), it is worth choosing one of the remaining models. DA-66T provides the balance between price and capabilities. This controller allows controlling of the backgauge in 8 and more axes. The operator’s possibilities may be unlimited. Moreover, 3D visualisation of parts and their location will ensure that making even very complicated parts becomes easier.
This controller is compatible with offline software Profile-TL using which your employee will be able to write CNC programmes for your parts in your company. This solution enables the production process optimization and best utilises the operator time for the bending process when working with the machine.
Delem DA-69T is targeted for the most demanding customers. It allows the 3D control of each part using only the controller. Extensive memory will store all the programmes sorted out in folders. Profile-T3D offline software allows importing DXF files with part drawings. The software will automatically create a program for the operator which will facilitate their work. This solution will prove its value in companies manufacturing many single parts and in which each day may bring along completely different parts to make.
We hope that we have solved all your doubts concerning Delem controllers as well as their practical application to our press brakes.
