8 Benefits of Press Brakes
Press brakes are essential equipment that helps fabricators to create
formed parts, including brackets, enclosures, channels, structural forms,
ductwork, and custom projects. You can easily find them in every
fabrication job shop and many machine shops. Their versatility allows
them to be useful for many applications. They help fabricators and
operators bend sheet metals and create new items of different shapes
and forms.
It is equally important to invest in good quality machine parts as it is to
invest in good quality press brakes. Amada parts, Hypertherm parts,
etc., are good examples for buying quality machine parts. Before we
delve into the benefits of press brakes, let us define what they are.
What are Press Brakes?
They are fabrication tools that are useful to bend a metal sheet or plate
by placing it on top of a die and lowering the punch on it. Then through
a defined force by tonnage, forcing the material into the die bends a
flange up until it achieves the desired form of shape and angle. And, the
press brake controller or operator must account for spring back in the
material to achieve the correct angle after the removal of pressure. And
after the pressure is removed, the ram retracts back to its position.

There are different types of press brakes, and they are classified
depending on the type of generation of the bending force. Different
types of press brakes include:
● Electric Press Brakes - Belt driven mechanisms move the ram by
applying force
● Pneumatic Press Brakes - Light duty brakes for only the thinnest
gauge of materials
● Hydraulic Press Brakes - Hydraulics brakes move the ram or bed
up/down by applying pressure
● Mechanical Press Brakes - Drives a force applied via a flywheel
8 Benefits of Press Brakes
1. Reduced Material Wastage
Unlike other machines that use lots of material to make the desired
items, press brakes boost high-end precision and accuracy results. In
addition, this leads to less waste of materials.
2. In-House Forming Capabilities
If you are sourcing your formed parts from outside your facility, you
should use press brakes designed to deliver ultimate accuracy that leads
to the production of high-quality products. This reduces rejection rates
and customer returns with the increase in precision rate and customer
satisfaction.

3. Punching
Suppose you own an application that punches a systematic row of holes
in a particular part. In that case, you can easily fit a press brake with an
individual punch set or a complete die set for punching these holes out
accurately and all in one similar stroke. Press brakes can utilize a large
part of their overall bending tonnage for punching applications. In
addition, offsetting the punch heights lets you get more punches in a
line than before.
4. Hemming
The Hemming process is one of the most necessary operations in
almost every fabricating shop. Hemming is the process of folding a small
portion of the sheet over and then closing it back on itself to create a
thicker, durable, and more rigid edge. It also makes a rounded edge for
safer material handling. Hemming is essential in the manufacturing of
all types of boxes, panels, and covers. A custom toolset or a simple flat
hemming die can complete the hemming process.
5. Complex Forming
Amada Press brake for sale can offer unmatched flexibility and
cost-effective solutions due to their forming. Combined with a
segmented punch, die sets, acute tooling, and sophisticated controls, a
press brake forms even complex multi angle parts with ease.

sales@altparts.com
6. Prototype Forming
One of the significant benefits of press brakes is that their setup and
tooling are simple. This makes the switching between applications fairly
straightforward. It also makes prototype bedding and forming
applications a simpler process. Whether you are proving a part or
process out, a press brake is a vital tool that allows the parts to
complete without any expensive or complex tooling and complicated
setups.
7. Automation
Modern press brakes can be automated for increasing productivity,
reducing overall labour cost, and improving accuracy. Manufacturers
will be happy to know that the press brakes released into the market
have various specialized data ports and also other innovative
accessories for facilitating automation. Adding material handling to
assist the operator in lifting heavy parts can increase productivity and
allow for the same result for each and every bend.
8. Flexibility
Unlike other forming processes like folders, a press brake can bend at an
extremely wide variety of materials and thicknesses with a wide
window of capabilities.

Conclusion
Press brake parts make it easy to manage machines but it is very
important to invest in good quality press brakes for smooth and finished
end output. Amada parts are the best option you can choose for
machine parts. Also, while searching when you see Amada press brake
for sale, you know what to do right?
Many of the newer controlled press brakes offer a vast wealth of
information in the controllers. Because when the programming is
simple and straightforward, it becomes easy for a shop owner to
program a job and run a complete 2D or 3D simulation of that bend
with the exact information that provides control on the cycle time and
material blank sizes.
