When bending material thicker than 10-gauge, at least two operators are needed to handle the plate, and manipulating it for various bends can be a strenuous work, not to mention a serious safety hazard for the operators. That's heavy stuff, and for these large-workpiece applications, a folding machine can step up to the plate.
Fastest press brake of its size on the market! The Xpert 40 keeps pace with today’s high-speed Fiber lasers. Ultra high-performance ram, back gauge and safety system ensures highly efficient production of complex shapes. First to combine entire setup and production in one station, greatly reducing non-productive bending time. Visit our website.
The gap between exact and real world - by Dan Davis
Engineers often know how to design things, but not necessarily how to make them. Fabricators that can give the next generation of engineers an idea as to how metal parts are made are doing everyone in manufacturing a favor.
