Press brake tools are an essential component of the sheet metal bending process. A press brake tool is a precision-made tool that is designed to work with a press brake machine to form, bend, and cut sheet metal to specific shapes and angles. The press brake tooling consists of a punch and a die, which work together to create the required bend in the metal. The punch is attached to the ram of the press brake, and the die is attached to the bed of the machine.
Press brake tools are available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and materials, depending on the specific requirements of the bending job. For example, a V-shaped punch and die set is commonly used for making 90-degree bends, while a radius punch and die set is used for creating curves in the metal. The tools are made of hardened steel, and the surface of the tooling is often coated with a wear-resistant material to ensure longevity and durability.
Press brake tooling is a critical part of the sheet metal fabrication process and plays a significant role in determining the accuracy and precision of the final product. The selection of the appropriate tooling is crucial in achieving the desired bend angle and maintaining the integrity of the metal！
