Vertical Press Brake Machine
Vertical Press Brake Machine
1. Vertical Press Brake Machine Description(1) Accurate, user-friendly control system
Runs in single-bend mode or programmable mode. Comes standard with 2 axes of control: stroke and back gauge distance. Simple controller is so intuitive that you could train someone to use it in 5 minutes. Programmer stores up to 40 programs with up to 25 bends per program, great for saving time on production. Bending is accurate to +/- .01mm, ensuring that parts come out right the first time. Foot pedal brings the stroke up and down. Just input your specs on the controller, then press the pedal for each bend. You can make a complete part without touching the controller. Push the metal in while pressing the foot pedal. Choose between 2 speeds: a rapid approach and retract and a slow bending speed. Faster speed option lets you reduce cycle times and bend more quickly. Chain drive back gauge system uses tried-and-true technology that you can easily maintain. The 23" back gauge can advance or retract according to programmed instructions.
(2) Rigid steel construction and included tooling
Fully-welded all-steel framework helps prevent deformation and minimize flex during the bending process. Weighs a robust 6,000 lbs. for massive structural strength that ensures accurate results. Includes support arms around 2 feet in length. Comes standard with tooling: a multi-Vee bottom die and gooseneck punches. Quick-release tool holders let you make changes easily. You only have to open a lever and it drops the top die out. No time-consuming cap screws. Crowning adjustment dial gives you the option to deliver more pressure in the center of a bend for consistency all the way across. Safety light curtains prevent the machine from bending when someone is too close. Light curtains will swing open and get out of the way when you’re doing a tool change.
2. Crowning System of Vertical Press Brake Machine
Manual and CNC crowning ensures a constant bend angle across the full length of the machine. This is achieved by pre loading the machine, to offset any possible deflection under load or compensate for any tool wear, so that under load contacting surfaces are parallel to each other.
With CNC crowning systems the press brake control is preprogrammed with machine characteristics and deflection data. With manual crowning a simple spread sheet or chart can be easily developed for each application
3. Back Gauge System of Vertical Press Brake Machine
The correct back gauge for the application can have a substantial positive influence on production part volume and accuracy. The more intricate the parts, typically the more axes on the back gauge you should have. Volume of parts needs to be considered also. A smart, experienced brake press operator can bend, form and produce some very intricate parts without even a single axis back gauge. However, the more time it takes to form the correct part, the more costs you have in the part. So the best scenario would be to have an experienced operator with the correct back gauge system that will magnify their skills. But in today’s market, smart, experienced Press Brake operators are getting hard to find. So the correct back gauge for the application will decrease costs per part by helping to make a good press operator, a great one. The less experience an operator is the more axes you should have. Also, experienced operators know the benefit of correct back gauge for applications.
