A bend is the shaping of sheet metal by applying a force that exerts pressure on a specific length of material, either at a specific point or in a linear fashion. This applied force is also called the bending moment. The strength of the bending moment determines the degree of deformation. In order to quickly and efficiently produce metal bending, a bending machine is needed.

5 Benefits of Using a Hydraulic Press

Hydraulic presses are often used in industrial production due to their reliability and functionality. Here are five benefits of hydraulic equipment:

1. Uniformity of effort
During the entire stroke of the ram, the machine maintains the same tonnage. This is what distinguishes the force of a hydraulic press from mechanical pressure.

2. Pressure regulation
When setting the required parameters, the press will maintain the set pressure.

3. Lift and press
Many presses are equipped with double acting cylinders that provide both lift and pressing force.

4. Simplicity
Hydraulic presses are simple in design, easy to operate and, with proper use and maintenance, will last for many years of trouble-free operation.

5. Tonnage selection
The ranges of hydraulic presses offer many different tonnages, thanks to which the necessary force is generated. Usually, the range is from 10 to 200 tons in standard designs. As well as higher tonnages are available for customization.

Choosing the right sheet metal bending machine can sometimes be a daunting task, but knowing three things can make the choice easier. The main parameters when choosing a bending machine are: bend length, force, depth and height of the throat.

  • The length of the bend corresponds to the largest overall dimension within which it will be possible to use the press for bending the material.
  • Effort is a parameter of maximum pressure, which should be guided solely from the experience of production. We recommend always doubling the required tonnage to ensure safety and long press life.
  • The depth and height of the throat are the dimensions of the opening between the sides of the machine, which should also be taken into account individually.

MTech bending machines are versatile, easy to operate and maintain, have a clear interface, and a reliable hybrid system, which means they will last a long time and without complaints.

The main advantages of MTech hydraulic press brakes are Siemens main engine, Bosch Rexroth hydraulic system, quick-change tool holder system, two front sheet supports, ergonomic control panel and remote pedal.

The range of hydraulic bending machines consists of three main types of equipment:

  • manual bending machine has the following characteristics and features: the back stop is set manually, the bend angle is not set; hydraulic stroke design synchronizing by ram mechanism, adopting torsion shaft and mechanical stop unit; the deviation is compensated by the wedge design.
  • bending machines with NC control have the following characteristics and features: hydraulic transmission, hydraulic cylinders and mechanical stop precision setting system, left and right cylinders are fixed on the frame of the machine, only the angle and back gauge are set.
  • bending machines (sheet benders) with CNC control have the following characteristics and features: during the bending phase, the correct position of the crown is calculated by the CNC and corrected in real time, based on feedback from pressure sensors located in the plunger brake and bed. Numerous hydraulic crown cylinders located in the bottom frame of the bed help resist plunger deflection. The angle and back gauge are set according to the program, minimum 2 axes, maximum 8+1.

MTech produces quality equipment at affordable prices. So, the price of a hydraulic press brake with NC or CNC starts from $11500. You can learn more about the characteristics of sheet benders, select and buy a bending press, taking into account all the features of the activity, on our website in a separate section.
