Hydrapower Intl. has developed a feeder system for corrugated plate production. It can be attached to any press or press brake.
The system raises and lowers plates into and out of the dies when forming hat sections, V ribs, and other profiles. It also feeds the plate through the press brake at each bend location.
With the system, one operator can process the entire plate quickly with accurate bend locations, the company reports.
