Heavy-duty line assists press brake plate bending - TheFabricator.com

Wila® USA has introduced the HD heavy-duty product line to help maximize press brake productivity when bending plate from 0.3125 to 1 in. thick or when bending high, concentrated loads, such as high-tensile-strength materials in dies with smaller than normal V-openings.

The line comprises hydraulic clamping and crowning systems, both of which have a maximum load rating of 269 tons/ft. It also includes bottom tool holders, punches and dies, and a tool storage and tool loading system.

The hydraulic clamping systems can pull up, seat, and align a punch weighing as much as 700 lbs./ft. The crowning systems are available in standard widths of 10 and 6 in. with either hydraulic or mechanical die clamping. The 6-in.-wide bottom toolholders feature hydraulic clamping of single V-dies. Load ratings are 269 tons/ft. with CNC-deep-hardened working surfaces or 168 tons/ft. with prehardened working surfaces.

The punches and dies are available with patent-pending E2M "Easy-To-Move" roller bearings incorporated into the tool tangs. The new toolstation locates on the left or right side of the press brake. Made in 40-in. modules, it has a series of top and bottom toolstations to store the punches and dies at the same level as the clamping and crowning systems or bottom toolholders.
