4 steps to better press brake management

With the large increase in productivity fabricators have experienced with the advent of faster laser cutting systems, press brake operations have increasingly been considered a key bottleneck on production floors. Many shops are investing in newer press brakes that allow for faster setup times. If that isn’t yet an option for your shop, however, it’s still important to ensure your press brake is running at peak efficiency. Here are four ways in which you can make certain you are getting the most out of your existing system.

Engineering or Machining — Why Not Both?

Our website recently published an article looking into issues which may arise between engineers and machinists in manufacturing companies, and possible solutions. The author came to a conclusion that one of the most important factors is a knowledge gap between engineers and machinists, which does not allow them to understand each other fully. In today's part of the article we will look into what can be done to eliminate this gap.

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.
