How to choose a press brake: 7 factors you should consider

CNC press brake and other CNC equipment are different in aspect to processing field and technology, so as the manufacturers, you have to take full consideration (including the application, deflection, bending radius of parts, etc) before you made the decision to buy it. As the decision maker, you gonna have the responsibility to understand the performance, processing range, function, precision of press brake.

Bending without back pains — what to choose? Part II

Last week we have started our journey into exploring modern technologies of bending, trying to choose a technology which would be the best suited for manufacturing and help to get rid from back pains and strains of the operators. Let us get on today and see, what benefits the folding machines can bring.

Bending without back pains — what to choose? Part I.

Have operators who strain their backs lifting large panels during the press brake forming cycle? It doesn’t have to be that way.

What is more important — cutting machine utilization or process throughput?

Like in all situations it depends on your criteria of course, if I were selling machine capacity as a steel service center I definitely would like to keep my cutting machines as busy as possible.

Modula Vertical Storage Solutions for a Lean Manufacturing

8 types of waste that VLMs can eliminate While processes differ between factories and warehouses, the typical types of waste found are quite similar and always involve inefficient use of time and money. Lean manufacturing is based on identifying and eliminating waste. In lean manufacturing, waste is any expense or effort which doesn’t generate a product or a service that a potential client is willing to pay for.
