Press brakes are must have machines in every sheet metal fabrication shop. Press brakes and sheet metal fabrication have a rich history dating back centuries, with their evolution closely tied to advancements in metalworking and manufacturing. The concept of bending metal sheets can be traced back to ancient civilizations, where artisans used rudimentary tools like hammers and anvils to shape metal manually. However, it wasn’t until the Industrial Revolution in the late 18th century that significant innovations began to emerge.
All these years press brakes evolved into high-tech machines with fancy colors and covers. They are even communicating with other machines, softwares as a result of industry 4.0. But there is one part, which didn’t change that much, press brake tools.
Standard fixed V dies have some common problems like;
One of our customer was facing hole deformation and small flange bending problem with their Amada press brake. As mentioned above, these are tool related problems rather than bending machines. Therefore, we used our best approach for tooling, Rolla-V press brake tools.
As you can see on the video above, Rolla-V dies are having unique advantages when it comes to protect holes and cut-outs close to bend line. As the inserts supports the sheet metal when rotating, holes cannot deform as they do on a standard V die. Also bending small flanges is an amazing benefit as it also reflects on reducing material usage in the long run.
If you are looking for solving your bending problems, we will be happy to help you with a demonstration. Even if you are far away, no worries. Online demonstrations are also available upon request.
