Both machines have a great space-saving design and have a small footprint which shrinks the production area needed. Both machines also share the same drive and bridge frame. One main difference between this machine and the AE-255 NT is the working area.
The consumption of power is at a low 3.5 kW, which is excellent considering the faster stroke speed that it has.
Merry Mechanization's sheet metal fabrication and nesting software, SMP, are a great complement to this punch machine.
The maintenance for this machine including the spare component costs are quite low because of the drive system.
