How to use the press brake ?
1,Punch and die is the important part for bending process ,we need to choose the right punch and die for our products before running the machines .
2,Due to the die V opening is corresponding to the bending sheet thickness ,we need to choose the right opening for the bending job.
3,For the hydraulic press brake machine , we need to prepare the hydraulic oil firstly ,the oil type is 46# anti-wear hydraulic oil and we need to fill the tank until it is full .
4,We need to prepare to prepare the necessary cable according to the machine power in advance .When we get the cable ,one end should be connected to the power and another end will be connected to the electric cabinet by professional electrician
5, After connected the cable ,we will start the machine power and pump and check the motor rotating direction , if the direction is anticlockwise ,we need to exchange the cable each line and try again until the rotating direction is clockwise.
6,When the machine in running ,we need to program on the controller according to the produce according to the product that we will bend step by step ,we can also operate in manual mode or auto mode according to our bending purpose .
7,After the programming ,we will put the metal sheet on the bottom die and start the bending work step by step and finish the product finally .
How much does a press brake cost ?
The price depends on the machine capacity ,configurations ,optional devices ,degree of automation ,axis quanity and controller difference etc.
Hydraulic type metal bender
Hydraulic sheet metal bender is widely accepted by startup and new operators .Actually ,it’s price stars from USD 3500 dollars ,when the bending capacity and bending length is more ,the price will increase accordingly .This type of press brake is equipped with X and Y axis and it’s operator will be much easier than other high level machine .
Electro hydraulic servo CNC bending machine

This axis can be update into 6+1 axis or 8+1 axis and the controller will support 3D simulation or 3D programming ,it will largely optimize the bending process ,the offline software will be the helpful tool to boost the productivity and this software will be for free .It will about 1.5-2 times of hydraulic type press brake .
What is the press brake crowning ?
Press brake machine is an important equipment in sheet metal processing ,and its working accuracy directly affect the bending accuracy of working pieces .In the bending process of the working piece ,the two ends of the ram are stressed mostly, the reaction force when the plate is bend leads to concave deformation of the lower surface of the ram ,and the deformation of the middle part of the ram is the most ,the final bent workpieces have different angles in the whole length direction. In order to eliminate the adverse effects of ram deformation ,it is necessary to compensate the deflection deformation of ram .The usual crowning systems are hydraulic crowning and mechanical crowning ,which make the middle part of the workbench produce upward elastic deformation to offset the deformation of the ram of press brake ,ensure the precision of machining joint surface and improve the precise of workpiece. At present .major foreign press brake manufactures adopt mechanical crowning devices . Domestic manufactures will choose the appropriate crowning method according to the actual situation .
How does a press brake work ?
The bending proceed is executed by the punch and die ,the upper punch is installed on the ram and the bottom die is anchored on the table .When the punch moves together with the ram up and down ,the sheet will be bent into different angles or shapes .There are three different types of bending methods used in forming sheet metal :coining ,bottom bending and air forming . Each has a specific purpose and application.
Coining was probably the first bending method practiced in the sheet metal trade . The process required an amount of tonnage so that the material being formed acurally flows .This flowing goes out from the coined segment to that part f the workpiece not under pressure . If the bend radius is sharp (less than 63% of the material thickness),the punch tip can actually penetrate into or past the neutral axis of the bend . There are yield of the material is broken .With this penetration of the neutral axis by the punch tip ,the spring back almost disappear ,and material remains permanently deformed at the point where the pressure was released .
There are many similarities between coining and bottom bending . With coining ,however ,the entire surface of the material comes into contact with the tooling ,which is stamped so that the material actually flows ,with bottom bending ,on the other hand , only the radius is stamped into the material. Spring back is the characteristic of most materials to try to return to the flat position after forming . The angular tooling clearance should be equal to the required angle and spring back ; it forced back to the required bend angle .
Air forming is third step , the three points are the punch tip and both top corner of the die .Air forming uses the penetration of the punch tip into the die space as the factor in achieving the required bend angle . Because its tonnages are greatly reduced from those required for coining or bottoming , Wear and tear on the press brake and tooling is greatly reduced ,leading to a marked increase in equipment longevity .
Each of there forgoing styles of metal forming has a purpose . Each is capable ,within it’s limitations ,of producing an excellent product ,it take the practiced eye of the journeyman to know why and when specific techniques should be used .
What is the application of press brake machine ?
The press brake machine is widely used for the steel sheet metal processing .
The cnc press brake machine will be used for bending stainless steel elevator,steel door and frame ,steel door and frame ,steel windows and skirting line .Sometimes we used the cnc v grooving machine to get the accuracy and perfect angles .
The press brake machine plays an important part in the production of electric cabinet industry .After the steel sheet or stainless plate cut by the shearing machine or laser cutting machine , the operator will use the cnc press brake machines to bend into different size of the cabinet by different types of the punch and die . The segamented tooling is also the necessary part during the production. Especially for the left and right horns of the punch ,it is the important to form the box in the final stage.
Most of the kitchen devices are made of stainless steel ,we need to use the press brake to bend them into different sharp before the final product is finished .Mostly we use the CNC press brake machine with different punch and die ,like gooseneck punch and 2V die by segament . We also can use the machine to make HVAC and other related products .

The modern hydraulic press brake can be divided into two basic groups ,but the up-acting is the best model .
What are the advantages of a sheering machine?
There are many advantages of a shearing machine compared to other forms of cutting tools. A shearing machine supports numerous cutting procedures like piercing, coining, and embossing in a single operation. This machine supports excellent dimensional control, accuracy, repeated actions while ensuring straight and superior finished edges of a material.
The shearing machine supports an economical alternative to any traditional cutting process used in larger production. Avoiding the need of any secondary machine, this machine is suitable for making slots or holes of any desired size whether these are placed near to the edges or to each other.
How does a shearing machine work?
In a shearing machine, one finds a moving blade and a fixed blade. The moving blade pushes the workpiece against the fixed blade. The cutting action takes place exactly perpendicular to the direction of blade movement. This makes the material to experience highly localized shear stresses between these blades. When the shear stress is increased to a certain level, the material is first fractured and then torn.
Due to normal inhomogeneities in materials and inconsistencies in cutting, the shearing action may not occur in a uniform manner. Generally a fracture begins at the weakest point and progress to the next till the entire workpiece is sheared.
What is a shearing machine?
Shearing machine is a die cutting equipment that cuts stock or sheet of metal, plastic and paper without forming chips or taking help of burning or melting. This handy tool supports operations like blanking, piercing, roll slitting and trimming.
Different types of shear machines are hydraulic, over crank and under crank machines. Shock resistant, low and high end alloy steel and carbon are used as shearing plates depending on the thickness of materials to be cut down.
CNC v grooving machine
How many types of CNC v grooving machine ?
Vertical V groover machines have a dozen separate pressing plates and more than fourteen independent clamps for automatic clamping. Plates of all sizes can be processed. What’s more, the vertical V groover machine both can do horizontal and vertical grooves. The minimum workpiece size is 8mm*8mm. The vertical sheet metal grooving machine’s work surface is high-quality mold steel which through overall heat treatment after a grinder refined. Its surface fineness achieves the effect of the mirror. Therefore, the processed products are clean and smooth.
The horizontal CNC V grooving machine
Its working table is larger and easier to work. The knife is facing a platform 1.5 meters wide and more than 4 meters long. More things need to be controlled, so the accuracy is lower. Therefore, it is very difficult to control the accuracy in the range of 0.1 mm. When the horizontal CNC V grooving machine is working, the gantry and the tool holder move back and forth together. Its weight is about 1000kg. Therefore, the horizontal V grooving machine’s energy consumption is more than 10 times that of the vertical V grooving machine.
A horizontal V groover machine is suitable for slotting large sheet metal. After longitudinally planning the slot, the plate cannot be clamped horizontally because of deformation. So, it cannot be able to horizontal gouging. The horizontal V groover machine’s working table is welded by a common iron plate. Stainless steel sheets are harder than they are. Long-term use can make the table potholes and make the table bumpy. That’s the reason for the spots on the processed products.
What are the main features of V grooving machine
·The V groover machine adopts a platform-type double guide rail structure, and the beam runs more smoothly. The blades holder processes the plate by moving left and right, back and forth, which can ensure the accuracy of each part of the groove depth.

The whole machine is processed on a CNC floor-type boring and milling machine, which ensures the parallelism and perpendicularity of each mounting surface.
·The V grooving machine uses high-speed and precise gear racks, ball screws with large pitches, and high-precision, linear guides. The main shaft system is driven by a high torque servo motor and an imported star reducer. Makes the tool holder more stable and fast when processing the workpiece.
·The numerical control program design is reasonable and easy to master, which can be completed only by inputting the keyboard and processing program. According to the different materials, the knob can be used to adjust the processing speed for the convenience of the operator.
What is the CNC v grooving machine ?
CNC Groove machining is primarily used to facilitate the bending or folding of various materials and creates a V-shaped cut or channel along the surface of a material. This cut along the fold line acts as a hinge, allowing the product to achieve 90-degree bends with relatively small bending radii. The V-grooving is also known as score-folding, V-cutting, and back-scoring.

How to install the machine ?
Your Ironworker was bagged, palletized, and shipped from the factory to your dock. Remove the protective packaging and bolts from the tubular legs that secure the machine to its pallet. Move your Ironworker to its fabrication location by inserting your forklift forks within the tubular Ironworker legs. Do not move the machine by any other means! Locate your Ironworker directly adjacent to your power supply. See instructions for elctrical hookup written down below.
Care and periodic maintenance
Your Ironworker will benefit from reasonable care and periodic maintenance.
Provide clean ISO Viscosity 46 hydraulic fluid (or equal) to the cylinder in the Ironworker. Contaminated fluid will compromise your cutting operation.
Grease all machine guides and pins daily. Your Ironworker is labeled with all grease locations that require maintenance.
Maintain .010 clearance between fixed and movable shear blades on 40, 50, 55, 60 and 65 Ton models at all times. Maintain .015 clearance between fixed and movable shear blades on 75, 100, 100D and 120 Ton models at all times. Insert a feeler gauge between fixed and movable blades to verify proper blade clearance and shear tolerance. Adjust tolerance of shear blades by relieving the locking nuts that secure the gib-pins to the Ironworker frame. Once loose, rotate gib-pins to push the operating center against the frame. Gap the angle and bar shear blades with the specified clearance and tighten the gib-pin lock nuts. Failure to maintain proper clearance will result in lower quality cuts, damage to blade, blade pockets and potential to damage the Ironworker frame.
Periodically check gib-pins for lubrication and snugness to operating center. Tighten gib-pins and locking nuts to maintain blade clearance as indicated above. Gib-pins are wearing parts.
Your Ironworker is capable of punching materials as listed in the Ironworker Specifications section of this Manual as well as described on the capacity labels positioned at the Punch Station. The punch station on the Edwards Ironworker allows for a wide variety of punching, stamping or embossing applications. The removable table allows for flange or leg down punching of standard channel and angle sections.
Your Beaml Ironworker has been shipped with a punch and die installed within the punch station. When changing the punch and dies its important to make sure the machine is turned off. Failure to power down your machine could result in injury to the operator performing the work. To setup your punch station, please observe the following steps.
1. Swing the Punch Stripper up from the punch by loosening the stripper assembly bolts.
2. Remove punch by loosening the punch nut assembly with factory supplied wrench.
3. Remove die by loosening the set screw at the front edge of the punch table and then lifting die from the die holder. If the die resists removal gently tap the die from the underside of the punch table to loosen the die for removal.
4. Install new die and tighten set screw. If loading a shaped die, align the whistle spot with the set screw and tighten.
5. Install new punch and tighten punch nut with wrench. If using a shaped punch, align the locating keystock of the punch with the corresponding slot within the punch stem assembly and tighten the punch nut with the wrench.
6. Check for punch and die alignment by powering up the machine and inching down the punch to meet the die with the foot pedal. Check to see that the punch is centered in the die.
7. In the event that the punch and die are not aligned, loosen the bolts under the table allowing the table to be moved to center the die. When aligned, tighten the table bolts to secure the table.
8. Swing the stripper bar back in place allowing for minimal clearance between the top of the material and the bottom of the stripper and tighten the stripper bolts.
When familiar with the setup and safe operation of the punch station, clear the punch station of any tools or debris prior to powering the machine on. When clear, power the machine on and place the material to be punched between the punch and die. Check to see that your material is spanning the stripper plate and that adequate material is available beyond the stripper area to safely position the material. Clear your hands from the working area and depress the foot pedal to move the punch through the material and into the die. When the punch is complete, release the foot pedal automatically strip the material from the punch and return the punch to its neutral position.
Recommended Punch and Die Operating Clearances
Material Thickness Total Clearance in inches
16 gauge and lighter .006″
15 gauge – 12 gauge .010″
3/32″ – 5/32″ 1/64″
3/16″ – 15/32″ 1/32″ (standard unless specified)
and heavier 1/16″
You can determine the tonnage required to punch A36 mild steel (yield strength 32,300 psi, 65,000 psi tensile) by applying the following formulas for round or shaped holes. For materials other than mild steel please refer to the multiplier table.
When punching materials other than mild steel first calculate tonnage as shown above then apply the multiplier for the listed material.
Brass (1/4 hard): 0.70
Copper (1/2 hard): 0.52
Steel (50% carbon): 1.50
Steel (cold rolled): 1.24
Important Hole Punching Recommendations:
* Punches normally get dull faster than the die so if you are planning to punch many holes it would be wise to order extra punches at a ratio of about 3 punches for 2 dies.
* Punching holes in stainless steel will dull your punches extra fast. It helps if you spray some cutting oil on the spot before you punch the hole.
* Punching holes in type A36 steel can be unpredictable because A36 is made with recycled steel. The A36 that was made when the steel mill was recycling sheet metal is easier to work with than the A36 that was made when the steel mill was recycling ball bearings.
* For repeat punching in the same position it is recommended that you add a Gaging Table to your machine so you can accurately position your workpiece where you want it over and over again with little effort.
* If you a planning on punching hole patterns with holes that are less than 4 inches apart then you should consider buying a custom made multi-punch and die set that can punch multiple holes simultaneously perfectly spaced everytime. You will need the extra large 241 or 48XX type of punching assembly to do this.
* If you are planning on punching holes for wrought iron fencing or some other reason that requires holes to be evenly spaced on many pieces, then you should consider a CNC feed system.
* If you are punching holes in copper or soft aluminum or very thin steel then you should consider buying a Urethane Stripper to hold the metal down firmly while punching for a nice distortion free hole.
* If you are puching holes in thin metal you should consider using the stroke control to save time on the up and down cycle.
Your Ironworker machine will include a bar/plate shear as a standard feature. The bar/plate shear will provide a distortion and burr free shear cut to mild steel bar or plate stock as listed in the Ironworker Specifications section of this Manual as well as described on the capacity labels positioned at the Shearing Station.

11. Replace and secure the material hold-down assembly and return spring to the Ironworker frame.
Please observe the following guidelines when operating the Bar/Plate Shear Station
Never exceed the capacities of the machine or tooling as described in the Ironworker specifications or listed at the tooling station.
Check shear blade clearance at every tooling change or extended shear operation. Maintain correct operating clearance at bar shear and angle shear stations. See the Care and Periodic Maintenance section of your Owners manual for tolerance adjustment instructions. Failure to maintain clearance will damage shear blades and support brackets.
Tighten the clamp handle to fully clamp the material hold-down on the material being cut.
Do not stack material to cut in the shear station.
Perform complete shear operations only- partial shear cuts may jam the drop off side of the frame and could result in breakage and operator injury.
Use shearing aids when working with small items at the shear station.
Bar Shearing Operation
When familiar with the setup and safe operation of the Shear Station, clear the feed table of the shear station of any tools or debris prior to powering the machine on. When clear, power the machine up and place the material to be sheared on the feed table. Push the material under the material hold-down and into the blade area. Position your material to the desired cut and lower the material hold-down. Tighten the hand-wheel to secure the material in the feed table. Clear your hands from the working area and depress the foot pedal to activate the shear station. When the cut is complete, release the foot pedal to return the shear blades to their neutral position. Reverse the hand-wheel to raise the material hold-down and remove your material.

The angle shear will provide a distortion and burr free shear cut to mild steel angle stock as listed in the Ironworker Specifications section of this Manual as well as described on the capacity labels positioned at the Angle Shearing Station. The Angle Shearing Station on the Edwards Ironworker allows for straight cutting applications. An oversized material hold down adjusts with a simple thumb crank to safely restrain the material being cut.
Standard angle shears are factory tuned to proper clearances and are ready to begin shearing operations. Shear blades are wearing parts and will need to be maintained or replaced over time. When marinating or replacing your shear blades it is important to make sure the machine is turned off. Failure to power down your machine could result in injury to the operator performing the work. When maintaining or replacing blades please refer to the following.
Remove and replace stationary blade:
1. Remove the material hold-down assembly from the Ironworker frame by removing the bolts that secure the guard/hold-down assembly to the Ironworker frame.
2. Remove blade bolts located behind the guard. Remove the stationary blades.
3. With blades removed, clean blade pocket of any dirt or debris.
4. Your shear blades have multiple cutting surfaces that can be used prior to full replacement of the part. Rotate the stationary blades to new cutting surface and reinstall in blade pocket.
5. Tighten the stationary blades back into the blade pocket.
6. Replace and secure the material hold-down and guarding to the Ironworker frame.
Remove and replace movable blade:
1. Remove the angle shear drop-off guard from the rear of the Ironworker frame.
2. Power on the machine and inch the moving center down to reveal blades bolts for the moving blade.
3. With bolts exposed, turn machine off and disconnect from power source.
4. Remove blade bolts and remove blade from the blade pocket.
5. With blade removed, clean blade pocket of any dirt or debris.
6. Your shear blades have multiple cutting surfaces and tow radius options that can be used prior to full replacement of the part. Rotate the movable blade to the appropriate radius and new cutting surface and reinstall in blade pocket. See fig. For correct radius designation.
7. Tighten the movable blade back into the blade pocket.
8. Replace the drop-off guard to the rear of the Ironworker frame.
9. Return the machine to power and turn on to automatically return the moving center to its neutral position.
10. With a feeler-gauge, check shear blade for the correct operating clearance. See the Care and Periodic Maintenance section in your Owners Manual for tolerance adjustment instructions. Failure to maintain clearance will damage shear blades and support brackets.
11. Replace and secure the material guard and hold-down assembly to the Ironworker frame.
Please observe the following guidelines when operating the Angle Shear Station
Never exceed the capacities for the machine or tooling as described in the Ironworker specifications or listed at the tooling station.
Check shear blade clearance at every tooling change or extended shear operation. Maintain proper operating clearance at bar shear and angle shear stations. Failure to maintain clearance will damage shear blades and support brackets.
Fully engage the material hold-down with the material being cut.
Do not stack material to cut in the shear station.

What is ironworker machine ?
Ironworker machine often called the swiss-army
knife of machine tools; Ironworker machines are designed to punch, shear, bend and notch mild steel plate, barstock, angle iron and pipe. A wide range of accessories are available to fabricate rod and square stock, sheet metal and pipe. While many of these machines have a pivot arm system that is pulled down by a hydraulic cylinder, the Beaml Ironworkers operate by applying hydraulic force to a moving center plate. The center moves within the machine frame in a simple, vertical path and exerts downward force through shear blades, punch and dies, notchers, press brake dies or bump-die tooling to work with steel. Vertical travel of the moving center allows the operator to perform multiple operations on an Edwards Ironworker without always needing to remove adjacent tooling. Though there are some dual operator machines, due to their high cost most Ironworker machines are designed for single operator use only.
Plate rolling machine
What is the principle of sheet metal rolling machine ?
1, The movement form of the plate rolling machine
The movement form of the plate rolling machine can be divided into two forms of main movement and auxiliary movement .The main motion refers to the movement of the upper and lower rollers constituting the plate rolling machine to rotate and bend the processed plate ,and the main motion completes the processing tasks of the plate rolling machine . Auxiliary movement is the form of movement is the form of movement of the loading .Unloading and lifting of upper roller ,the lifting and the turning of the headstock during the rolling process of the plate bending machine. The mechanism is a three roller symmetrical type .The upper roll is vertically moved at the symmetrical position of the two lower rolls .It is obtained by the screw worm drive .The two lower rolls are rotated . Engagement to provide torque for rolled sheet .
The main motion refers to the upper roller around upper roller and the left lower roller and right roller for clockwise or counterclockwise rotation.
Auxiliary movement refers to the upward or downward movement of the upper roller.as well as the upward roll and flanging movement of the upper roller in the 01 vertical plane.
2, Processing method of bending
In the manufacture of sheet structure ,the bending process is mainly several processing methods such as coiling(rounding) bending(simmering)hemming ,and die processing .The bending process is completely by hot or cold processing .
Spheronization is to make the outer fiber of the sheet plate elongate under the action of external force ,and the inner fiber shortens to produce bending deformation(the middle fiber does not change) When the radius of the cylinder is large,it can be rolled at room temperature .For example .When the radius is small and the steel plate is thick ,the steel plate should ne heated and rolled . There are three processing methods for round steel plate at room temperature: Mechanical rounding ,tire mold pressing and manual production. Mechanical spheronization is carried out on a plate rolling ,machine (also called a plate rolling machine or a rounding machine)
The bending of the plate on the plate rolling machine is achieved by the pressure generated when the upper roller moves downward.

How many types of machinery maintenance workers ?
In most industrial settings, there are a few different types of personnel who are involved in the maintenance process.
1. Machinery mechanics
Among the duties of a machinery mechanic is keeping industrial machinery fully operational by performing necessary maintenance. They maintain and repair various forms of equipment. Machinery mechanics typically aren’t involved in advanced diagnostics. If they perform any type of diagnostic work it’s by visual inspection.
2. Maintenance technicians
A technician differs from a mechanic in that they focus more on the diagnostic side of maintenance. They examine equipment using computers and instrumentation to determine why it’s malfunctioning, then prescribe a solution to the problem. They might perform the repairs themselves.

How about effective machine installation Beaml offer ?
Machine installation can very often be an arduous and complicated task. Plants and production facilities require a diverse range of machinery and equipment which range from large scale cranes and bulldozers to smaller mechanisms like cutting equipment and robotics which require multiple parts to be installed and positioned in very specific ways. While larger machines can usually be hoisted by cranes and installed as a single unit, many machines demand separate installation sequences and processes. Machine installation of such a scale where heavy equipment is being moved is also a potentially dangerous activity if not carried out professionally with necessary care and precautions taken. Numerous guidelines and steps must be followed meticulously before, during and after the installation process. The correct handling, mobilization and treatment of larger machine parts and intricate components requires specialist knowledge, skills and experience in order to be successfully and safely installed.
