F30: Press Brake Bending and Technology

Breakout Session | Thursday, June 14, 2018 | 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Press Brake Technology

With the advancement of high speed Fiber Lasers the pressure is on the bending area to keep up without expanding department size. Reduction in press brake setup time is critical to do this. The presentation will cover various technologies available for reducing setup time with emphasis on Automatic Tool Changing.

The Benefits of Panel Bending vs. Press Brake Bending

When it comes to the forming portion of a production line, the first machine that comes to mind is usually a press brake. This is a go-to method for bending material into the part’s final shape or form. What some manufacturers are learning is that there is another viable solution for forming parts: a folding machine. This presentation will discuss the benefits of panel bending vs. press brake bending.
