Press brake is a machinery that used to bend the sheet metal or other metal plate.In most situation, these machine are very expensive and huge. So, we should have a good and correct manner before buying a press brake. How many points need to remind? Which one is more important? This article would show in details.Kindly hope that all buyers can read this note and they would found it is valuable.
1, the buyer should be careful. They should think of their idea many many times before making a decision. For example, you want to 8 mm sheet metal, someone told you that you should buy 125 tons/3200 press brake, then, you never think them carefully and take action at once. But the result is that 8mm metal need 160 tons press brake, that person is wrong. What can you do now? the machine in hand can not meet your need. However, you have run out of your money. So, this is the reason that we ask the buyer to think carefully and ask more engineers for opinions. The same situation is that you choose a factory with bad quality. 2, clarify what metal to bend. Because the hardness of different metal is different, even if the same metal,like mild. It also has different hardness. For example, Q325 is more soft than Q532. but in most situation, we quote the press brake based on the Q325. if you use this press brake to bend the Q532, it would damage your machine. Evenly, you use the press brake to bend stainless steel. And you think the hardness is similar with mild. But the fact is the stainless is much more hard 1.65 times than mild steel. Do you know these knowledge? If not, you must take some loss.
3, Do you have professional operator to run? It is wrong to think you can operate the press brake without a training. The press brake worker must have a strict lesson. If you have no too much experience for metal forming, you must do wrong thing. Maybe you can not afford the result or loss. For example, you bend your hand or foot. Nobody will save you. Finally, as a summary, before buying the press brake, you should have a deep thinking in the brain.
