Specialty Tool enables 90° bends to be made in punch press.

April 9, 2009

Opti-Bend tooling helps fabricators achieve lean manufacturing goals by eliminating secondary bending operations. With this solution, simple 90° bends can be made in thick turret or Trumpf-style punch presses. Tooling creates 90° wipe up form using rotating cam, built into die, that acts like press brake. Results include minimal to no sheet marking and fewer required hits. By enabling smaller bending operations on punch press, tooling can reduce part handling and setup time. Read More
