Now let’s speak about more professional things and our market of action. Now it is time to make facts (and rumors!) about...    ❯❯❯

CAN I BEND?


Nice question from the customer. It is the reality when you start to choose the press brake machine your main consulting partner is the manufacturer. There are a lot of choices - to buy just the machine, to request the study of all your drawings, to make the contract with the purchasing acceptance only after the fabrication of the part you need and much more. And it is serious - let's say if...    ❯❯❯

EXTERNAL PRESS BRAKE BENDING SOFTWARE


It is interesting to discuss why you really need external press brake software and moreover to invest in it. Let's forget about very old press brakes and to look what is possible to get on the market today. Normally most of standard press brakes of any manufacturer have the tooling library and bending simulation at least in 2D mode. It means that the customer can import the tooling through CAD...    ❯❯❯

INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT ITALY


Hi there! Normally we write about press brake tools and bending technology but sometimes we would like to make articles about other things. And what is the best subject we can write about? For sure Italy as the country of residence and the country we live in. Well, here are some general or not very common facts about Italy. Probably they could be useful if you are planning to visit Italy as...    ❯❯❯

PRESS BRAKE AUTOMATION


Normally it is reasonable to say that this subject is outside our range of job. We are writing about press brake tools because we supply them but automation of bending is the subject dedicated to the manufacturers of press brakes. Yes, mostly true and here is why we made idea for this article. There was the request where the customer want to bend steel with 25 mm thickness. Nothing special and...    ❯❯❯

DEFECTS AND BREAK OF TOOLING


Ok, a lot of articles how to choose and what to keep in mind to purchase press brake tools. Now this is the time to tell how it could be easily broke or defected. First thing to know from the customer side - normally press brake tools are investments for years. Nobody can tell you the real duration of life to use but it really could be years depends of all circumstances you have during the...    ❯❯❯

TESTING OF TOOLING


Press brake bending is the theory for all press brake tools manufacturers. When the customer asks for tonnage, springback, tolerance, angle - all what is possible to provide is the main theory. Yes, it is based on some experience, formulas, ideas and calculations but when the tool was not tested with your steel - there are only theoretical parameters. Moreover everybody who works in production...    ❯❯❯

RADIUS BENDING


Radius bending is one of the wide used application with the press brakes and as usual requires a lot of details. So we would like to speak more about it. Normally and the first the radius bending is the subject for consideration and precision calculation of possible springback. We already wrote it in other article so here we would like to ignore the main theory but one point still important...    ❯❯❯

ALL ABOUT MULTI-V BENDING DIES


There are no clear picture for Multi V bending dies so we prepared the article to speak about all. Standard for all main Italian press brake tools producers are max. 4V dies for Promecam system. These are not the effective or best solution but very loved by all press brake suppliers to use the set of 1 punch and 1 x 4V die which could be used for different thicknesses. For customer it means the...    ❯❯❯

HEAVY DUTY TOOLS


Heavy duty tools and applications - special thing when customer should be informed about. And we will try to explain to you - why and when. Let's speak about standard Promecam press brake tools. The standard max. tonnage for these type of tools is 100 t/m maximum. And this doesn't because of the tool geometry and material. This is because intermediate has only 13 mm width for the main part so......    ❯❯❯

HARDNESS AND QUALITY


Fine story if one manufacturer tries to inform all that he is in TOP-3 in Italy and other companies are not good. The discussion about quality is everlasting and if to "play with ethic rules" the most reasonable way is to close these discussions at all. Moreover are very specified products with duration of life for years so it is hard to say how fast they will worn and for sure it is impossible...    ❯❯❯

ONE MORE TIME ABOUT SPECIAL TOOLS


Normally every press brake tooling supplier has a lot of requests for special press brake tools with very few real orders. Why it is happen? In general customer can't imagine the price for special tool and makes improper calculation - like it will be something double as standard and that's it. So we will try to explain you better what are special tools for us and any other press brake tooling...    ❯❯❯

CLOSED BOX BENDING


The story with boxes bending is one of the main theories to study the principles of bending, work of press brake tools and imagine the positions and steps in your head. Don't know exactly the number but bending of boxes also is the main task for press brake - all electrical cases mainly are boxes. The second story could be doors with the same concept like closed boxes but with other dimensions...    ❯❯❯

ORIGINAL AND NON-ORIGINAL PRESS BRAKE TOOLS


One day we have read the article from one of very big press brake machines manufacturer about the advantages of original tools. In two words all the advertisement follows two main ideas - quality of tooling and complete package from one hands. And we would like to comment some words about it. In the world there are hundreds of press brake manufacturers with all type of quality, technical...    ❯❯❯

DO YOU NEED SPECIAL TOOLS FOR STANDARD BENDS?


Every manufacturer of press brake tools has the catalog of standard positions of tooling. This means the availability to supply standard tool with the identified geometry, material and radiuses in the shortest possible time. For example, for us is possible to offer deliveries from 24 hours, but we need more time to prepare sectional (cutted) positions. If the radius will be changed, geometry will...    ❯❯❯

PRESS BRAKE TOOLING SYSTEM - MAIN DETAILS AND DIFFERENCES


Let's speak few words about press brake tooling system i.e. upper part of the punch and lower part of the die at the area of clamping. Mainly they could be called as tangs. There are different systems available on the market if we will talk about the coverage there are 3 main ones - Promecam or EURO or European Style (main system in Europe and Asia), Trumpf-WILA (main clamping system of Trumpf...    ❯❯❯

PRESS BRAKE TOOLS MANAGEMENT


Normally, there are no any recommendations for storage of press brake tools. Just not to hit one to other and keep separate if possible. If you wish to make your tool storage bore effective you can order the special storaging box for your bending tools. The advantage that together with the marking at some place of box you can identify quickly the tool specification or for what part or press...    ❯❯❯

BENDING SPRINGBACK


Springback is the factor for every industrial deformation of metal which take effect and should be considered during the daily work. In general spring is the elastic return of material after the controlled deformation with the condition of material to be return into the initial condition. Springback is the parameter which is known for every operator of press brake and should be noticed during...    ❯❯❯

HI THERE!


Here you will find some useful or not very useful information dedicated the bending with the use of press brake machine and press brake tools. Together with promotional info we would like also to make some materials and assist people who are involved in press brake bending process. The target is the good source where you can find all things which you need. There are real reasons of this – ...    ❯❯❯
