Press brakes

Press brakes

Bending presses are machines designed especially for bending sheet metal. When bending (also frequently referred to as die- or V-bending) the non-bent or pre-bent workpiece (the metal sheet) is laid on a die with a V-shaped opening.


Requirements of components/systems:

  • End position accuracy of the pressure beams to ~ 0.01 mm; this means high demands on the closed loop hydraulic control
  • Solutions suitable for series production
  • Precision processing of multi-axis computer-controlled back stops
  • High angular accuracy when edge-bending due to swift processing of angle sensor signals
  • Safe and swift shut-down of machine for unconfined press access
  • Easy handling of components
  • High energy efficiency
  • Low noise mission.
