Bending machine / folding machine/ press brake used in folding metal sheet like Aluminum plate, galvanized sheet, iron plate, stainless steel plate, coated copper plate, they are mainly used in metal box, electric box, medical equipment, elevator, container, Kitchen table, cars, plane, crane, construction, steel structure, light pole, and other industrial line .
There are many kinds of bending machines. According to metal sheet thickness and customer's use, they are divide into the following :
First kind: Manual bending machine / folding machine.
It's suitable for thickness from 0.1mm-1.5mm, small structure but more convenient for workers to use. It has an upper mold can also be segmented into different sizes. It’s mainly used in HVAC duct sheet folding and thin sheet plate.
Second kind: Pan brake folder / Pan box folder
It used for thickness from 1.5mm-2.mm, heavy-duty structure and more stable. folder machine's worktable can be separate and help customer to save space.
It's upper mold like hydraulic press brake which can fold sheet from 0 degree -135 degree.
Third kind: Press brake
Press Brake is designed for bending more thick steel plate. It's widely used to produce the automobile, ship, container, crane, construction, steel structure, light pole, etc. It's organized by frame, beam, working table, cylinder, hydraulic system, control system and electric system. During working, the operator press the foot pedal, the beam will move up to the top dead at the ideal working speed, then the beam move down at the approaching speed, when the beam touch the bottom dead center, it will change to working speed and bend the steel plate, the beam will move up after finishing the bending job. Press brake is divide into hydraulic press brake, CNC press brake, and electro-hydraulic press brake according to CNC operating system.
