There are a few reasons why it might be time to upgrade to a new Press Brake, Guillotine Shear.

  • Improved reliability
  • Increased capacity
  • Improved safety
  • Improved repeatability

Initially founded in 1956 during the military dictatorship of Portugal, Mr Antonio Dias Ramos produced his first machine, in a small shop with five workers. By the 1960s Mr Ramos constructed the first mechanical shear in Portugal and soon after a hydraulic Press Brake.

Despite the Military Coup in 1974 and the subsequent Revolution, the period was still a very successful one for Mr Ramos. In the 1970s they built what we believe still to be one of the best jobbing shop Press Brakes ever built. The up stroking style machine (Model QHA) similar to the popular Promecam style made in France. This machine commenced export opportunities worldwide, including to Australia.

Power Machinery wasn’t the first Australian company to represent Adira, but eventually, the mantle was passed to us in the 1990s. In a cooperative arrangement with Magnum Machinery, 100s of Press Brakes and Shears were commissioned Australia wide. The most successful models were the QH Upstroking Press Brake and GH Swing Beam Shear. Unfortunately up stroking press brakes went out of favour but the GH has evolved in design and lives on as a popular shear today.

By the 1990s Adira had outpaced its competition in development to of the electronically balanced syncronised Press Brake, they were also the first European Manufacture to obtain ISO 9000 certification and the first in the world to achieve full CE certification for their entire range.

In the early 2000s we were proud to install some of the biggest Press Brakes in Australia. This included a 1500T x 7.5m Press Brake with a massive 1000mm daylight opening and 630mm stroke and 6 axis tower back gauges.

Adira is a highly progressive company that works closely with the local Universities developing new technologies.
