Press brake tools are the only parts of the machine that ever touch the finished parts being formed. The best precision CNC press brake cannot produce good products with poor tooling, and bad tooling makes all the good hardware in the process – including the machine operator – useless.
Take a look at how press brake automation continues to optimize the bending process and integrate with other downstream operations from a high speed laser cutting system to transform the “push” demands of the fabricating process into a competitive advantage for your shop.
Bending vs. Folding: Does your shop have the right machine for the job?
Are you still trying to manage frame deformation on a press brake that doesn’t use real-time monitoring and adjustment capabilities? If so, here are four characteristics of sheet metal that you and your press brake must know.
Is your shop having problems forming parts that require a large radius with a press brake? These four proven techniques can increase your part quality and eliminate scrap with minimal investment.
