Springback is the bane of air bending, and it gets worse as workpiece materials become stronger. Here’s an update on how major press brake builders are coping with it.
Hydraulic clamping systems help fabricators find competitive advantages
The vetted technology is being used in a range of small to large tonnage press brakes.
A multinational manufacturing company reaps the rewards of reducing setup times
Automatic adjusting of press brake tools is a fast way to adapt to varying materials, thickness, and bend radii, without physical tool changing.
Still shimming? Press brake crowning systems save time and reduce waste
Applying technology to safely bend thick and high-strength materials.
The art of bending: air bending, adaptive bending, bottoming, coining
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
