One operator, two machines, one workpiece – or a thousand. Like machining cells, the Flex-Cell allows one-part changeover or efficient production. But the press brake/folding machine combination is unique, as far as we know, in fabricating.
Still shimming? Press brake crowning systems save time and reduce waste
Friction stir welding provides a critical edge of performance for a spacecraft that will fly to Mars.
The art of bending: air bending, adaptive bending, bottoming, coining
There’s more to effective press brake automation than robots and programs. You have to start with a tool concept that doesn’t require a human to adjust and compensate for the limitations of a mindless machine.
By adding modern components, older press brakes get a new lease on life
If you’re facing a press-brake job with one of the new high-strength steels, one you haven’t worked before, brace yourself. It may look simple, but it can be full of surprises.
