Keep the machine clean

Use a clean, dry cloth to wipe down the machine after each use. This will remove any dirt or debris that could interfere with the machine's operation. Keep the machine clean and free of debris.

Check the oil level regularly

The hydraulic system in a press brake uses oil to power the ram. Make sure the oil level is at the recommended level and top it off as needed.

Change the oil

The hydraulic oil should be changed according to the manufacturer's recommended schedule. This will help to ensure the machine is operating smoothly and efficiently.

Check for leaks

Inspect the machine regularly for any leaks in the hydraulic system. If you find a leak, repair it as soon as possible to prevent further damage to the machine.

Keep the machine lubricated

Lubricate all moving parts according to the manufacturer's recommendations. This will help to reduce wear and tear on the machine and ensure it is operating smoothly.

Inspect the machine regularly

Perform regular visual inspections of the machine to identify any issues that need to be addressed. This should include checking the condition of the hoses, seals, and other components.

Follow the manufacturer's maintenance schedule

It is also important to follow all safety guidelines and procedures when using and maintaining your hydraulic press brake. This may include wearing proper personal protective equipment, performing regular safety inspections, and following proper lockout/Tagout procedures when servicing the machine. Follow the manufacturer's recommended maintenance schedule to ensure the machine is properly maintained. This will help to prolong the life of the machine and prevent costly repairs.
