Explore the different types of Press Brake: choose the bending machine that best suits your needs

When it comes to the field of metal processing, the bending process is a crucial part. In the bending process, Press Brake (bending machine) is one of the indispensable equipment. Press Brake is highly regarded for its superior performance in sheet metal bending and shaping, and different types of Press Brake provide the industry with a wider range of options to meet metal processing needs of different shapes and sizes.

Before we dive into the different types of press brakes, let’s first understand the basics of press brakes. Press Brake works by applying pressure to a metal plate, causing it to plastically deform along a specific bending line to achieve the desired shape and angle. This highly precise operation requires advanced engineering and innovative technology, and Press Brake has made significant progress in these areas.

Now, let us delve into different types of Press Brake to understand their respective characteristics, advantages and applicable scenarios, and provide professionals in the metal processing field with a more comprehensive understanding and selection reference.

Different types of press brake

NC Hydraulic Press Brake

NC Hydraulic Press Brake is a bending machine that integrates CNC technology and hydraulic system. It has high precision and reliability, and controls the bending length and bending angle through the CNC system, making the operation easier.

NC Hydraulic Press Brake

NC Hydraulic Press Brake

This type of bending machine is suitable for bending small and medium-sized workpieces, and is especially widely used in decorating, automotive, electronics and other industries. It is characterized by low cost, easy operation, and is suitable for scenarios with relatively low accuracy requirements.

CNC Synchronized Press Brake

CNC Synchronized Press Brake is a type of bending machine that controls the synchronous movement of the cylinders on both sides through a CNC system. This machine is highly synchronized and ensures that the workpiece maintains a uniform bending angle throughout the bending process.

CNC Synchronized Press Brake

It is suitable for processes that require high bending accuracy, such as manufacturing parts with thick plate structures. This kind of bending machine is usually used in fields such as shipbuilding, bridge engineering and heavy machinery manufacturing.

Servo Press Brake

Servo Press Brake uses servo drive technology, which has higher response speed and more precise control capabilities. The servo motor controls the cutting length and bending angle to achieve more flexible production.

Servo Press Brake

Servo Press Brake

This kind of bending machine is suitable for industries that have high requirements for speed and accuracy, such as electronic components and precision instrument manufacturing.

CNC Hybrid Press Brake

The CNC Hybrid Press Brake combines hydraulic and servo drive technology to provide the best of both worlds. It can provide higher production efficiency while maintaining high precision.

CNC Hybrid Press Brake

CNC Hybrid Press Brake

This type of bending machine is widely used in automobile manufacturing, military industry and other fields to meet the needs of mass production and complex parts.

Tandem Press Brake

Tandem Press Brake is a device that uses two or more press brakes in series to achieve longer bending lengths by working together. This design is suitable for large workpieces or scenes that require continuous bending.

Tandem Press Brake

Tandem Press Brake

Tandem Press Brake is commonly used in industries such as shipbuilding and wind energy equipment that require processing of long workpieces to improve production efficiency and reduce production costs.

How to choose a Press Brake?

Bending accuracy:

Bending accuracy is a crucial consideration when choosing a Press Brake. For applications that require a high degree of accuracy, such as the aerospace or electronics industries, machines that offer superior bending accuracy should be selected. CNC synchronized bending machines and servo bending machines often provide higher bending accuracy, ensuring that workpieces maintain consistent geometry throughout the production process.

Bending angle range:

Consider the range of bend angles required in your project. Different types of Press Brake may have different bending abilities. Make sure the machine you choose can meet your project’s specific bending requirements, including angle variety and adjustability.

CNC system:

The CNC system is the core of Press Brake. Advanced CNC systems can provide greater flexibility and precision. CNC (Computer Numerical Control) systems are the most common, but servo control systems usually provide higher response speed and more precise motion control. Choose the CNC system that suits your production needs to ensure productivity and bending accuracy.

Ease of programming and operation:

Consider whether the equipment is programmed and operated to the skill level of the operator. CNC systems usually involve programming and adjustment, so operators need to have certain technical abilities. Choose a CNC system that is simple to operate and easy to learn, or a supplier that provides training and support to ensure the equipment operates efficiently.

Equipment flexibility:

The flexibility of the Press Brake is essential to adapt to different processing needs. CNC Hybrid Press Brake combines the advantages of hydraulics and servo to provide greater flexibility and is suitable for different types of bending processes. Make sure the machine you choose is flexible enough to accommodate possible future production changes.
