Things You Should Know About Hydraulic Press Brake

Dec. 22, 2022

A hydraulic press brake is a machine tool that is used to bend sheet metal or plate steel into desired shapes. It consists of a bed or frame, a ram, and a hydraulic cylinder. The ram is equipped with a punch, which is used to apply pressure to the sheet metal, and a die, which is used to shape the metal as it is being bent.

Here are some things you should know about hydraulic press brakes:

  • Hydraulic press brakes use a hydraulic cylinder to generate the necessary force for bending. The cylinder is connected to a pump, which is powered by an electric motor. When the motor is activated, it drives the pump, which pressurizes the hydraulic fluid and pushes the cylinder to move the ram.

  • The ram is the part of the machine that applies the bending force to the metal. It consists of a punch and a die, which are used to shape the metal as it is being bent. The punch is usually mounted on the ram, while the die is mounted on the bed of the machine.

  • Hydraulic press brakes are typically classified according to the length of their bed and the tonnage of their ram. The length of the bed is the distance between the back gauge and the ram, while the tonnage of the ram refers to the amount of force it can apply.

  • Hydraulic press brakes can be used to bend a wide range of materials, including steel, aluminum, and stainless steel. They are typically used in industries such as automotive, aerospace, and construction, where precision and repeatability are important.

  • Safety is an important consideration when working with hydraulic press brakes. The machine should be properly maintained and all safety guards and devices should be in place and functioning properly. It is also important to follow proper operating procedures and to wear protective equipment, such as safety glasses and gloves when working with the machine.

  • They are generally safer to use than mechanical press brakes, as they do not require the operator to manually apply force to the ram. And they are typically operated by a single person, using a control panel to input the desired bend angle and other parameters.

  • They can be expensive to purchase and operate, but they offer a high level of productivity and can save time and labor costs in the long run.
