Our clamping and crowning systems offer the ultimate solution when it comes to efficiently changing tools - whether hydraulic or manual. We have created an overview of the most important differences.
An effective economical solution for less frequent tool changesClamping bolts are used to center the tools in the required position. When tools are changed less frequently, a manual clamping system in which the bolts are tightened by hand can be sufficient.
High efficiency for fast and frequent tool changesIdeal to meet the most demanding requirements with fast clamping and alignment. A flexible hose running the length of the system is used to transfer oil pressure to the tool via hardened clamping pins for maximum reliability. After the clamping system is activated, all tools are automatically positioned, centered and aligned.
The press brake industry is changing. Large series of identical products are making way for smaller series of increasingly complex products. It is becoming more and more important to change tools quickly and accurately. After all, long set-up times directly reduce productivity and profitability. How do you make sure you remain competitive in this rapidly changing market?
Customers are becoming increasingly demanding when it comes to the quality of end products. Process optimization and automation make it possible to meet such demands. And perfect tool alignment is essential for accurate bending on a press brake. What's the best way to achieve this?
The demands on press brake tools are ever increasing due to changes in the market and the optimization of the production processes.
