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.
By adding modern components, older press brakes get a new lease on life
Friction stir welding provides a critical edge of performance for a spacecraft that will fly to Mars.
One Belgium shop’s success lies in the niche market of large sheet metal processing
Having a versatile set of tooling is key to press brake productivity.
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.
Setup time kills productivity, especially when production runs are short. Hereâ€™s how a top press brake builder helps customers decide how to minimize lost time.
Theyâ€™re the monsters of the press brake world. But they operate like their smaller cousins, with a little help to handle the big work.
