Many factors contribute to a good part formed on a press brake. But every operator must understand four simple but crucial elements of the process for that to happen:
The characteristic feature of press brakes is to move a tool, usually the upper tool or the bending punch, it moves towards a fixed tool (V-die) which sits on top of bottom bed of the press, consequently bending the metal sheet placed between them. The freely accessible bending area of a press brake
What’s the big deal about the bend radiusFigure 1 When you have a sharp bend, the punch pierces the material surface during the bend. When you have a minimum radius bend (we’ll call it the “minimum borderline” between the sharp and perfect bend), the punch nose radius is just starting to pierce the
Metal cutting is one of the most commonly used methods of producing the final shape of manufactured products. Improved productivity is of essence for the industry in order to stay cost effective at a competitive market. Vibrations in metal cutting constitute a large part in hindering the productivit

Depends of the application and requirements of bends there are various geometry shapes for punches and dies of press brake tooling to perform standard or special sheet metal bending. Without the connection to the press brake clamping system the type of the tool is important otherwise the required bend is impossible to achieve.
