The pitfalls of outdated fabrication machinery

Precision and reliability are critical in metal fabrication. Using substandard brake presses or any other metal fabrication machine can lead to numerous issues, undermining the efficiency and quality of your operations, potentially putting your worker's safety and business at risk.

Poor-quality sheet metal bending equipment will leave you struggling to maintain accuracy, leading to inconsistent bends and wasted materials. These challenges will affect your bottom line and potentially tarnish your reputation for delivering high-quality work. Moreover, unreliable metal working equipment is prone to frequent breakdowns, disrupting production schedules and inflating maintenance costs.

The consequences can be especially severe for businesses operating in critical sectors like aerospace, defence, and heavy industries such as mining and construction, where precision and deadlines are paramount. By embracing advanced sheet metal brake presses such as our Baykal APHS, businesses aiming to scale operations can unlock their growth potential and avoid the stifling effects of outdated equipment.

The true cost of compromising on press brake quality

Choosing inferior pressbrakes and accepting inadequate service and support can significantly affect your business's bottom line and growth prospects. The immediate consequences are noticeable in reduced productivity and heightened operational expenses, which are just the tip of the iceberg. Over time, the broader implications become alarmingly clear. Customer trust diminishes with every unmet deadline and every product that fails to meet standards, jeopardising future contracts and your industry standing.

The outcomes can be even more severe in industries such as defence and aerospace, where the margin for error is virtually zero. These can range from failing to meet compliance standards to incurring financial penalties and even the revocation of essential certifications. This domino effect of using substandard metal working equipment highlights the importance of reliability and quality in the machinery you invest in and the service and support that backs it up.

Common FAQs about our brake presses

Here you'll find a range of answers to some of the more common questions regarding our range of brake presses we've been asked in past.

What are the differences between hydraulic and hybrid brake presses?

Hydraulic brakepresses use hydraulic fluid to power the bending action, offering robust force and the capability for heavy-duty bending operations. They are known for their power and versatility in handling different materials and thicknesses.

On the other hand, hybrid press brakes only use hydraulics during bending of materials, therefore mostly using electric servos to power the bending action, providing high precision, energy efficiency, and faster cycle times with less maintenance. The choice between the two depends on your specific production needs, including material type, thickness, and the precision required.

What are the benefits of a press brake like the APHS HYBRID?

Hybrid press brakes, such as the APHS HYBRID series, combine the best features of hydraulic and electric press brakes, offering a blend of power, precision, and energy efficiency. The nuanced design integrates a servo-electric motor to power the hydraulic system, reducing energy consumption by only activating the hydraulics when necessary for bending.

This innovative approach provides the force and capability of traditional hydraulic press brakes with the added benefits of lower energy costs, reduced maintenance, and improved control and precision.The APHS HYBRID models are particularly advantageous for operations looking to increase sustainability without compromising on bending power or quality.

Can brake presses handle complex bending operations?

Yes, press brakes are well-equipped to handle complex bending operations. They feature advanced control systems that enhance programmability and user-friendly operation, allowing for precise and intricate bends. The quality of tooling, including the punch and die set, also plays a critical role in achieving complex bends, ensuring accuracy and consistency in production.

How does press brake tooling affect the metal bending process?

The choice of tooling is critical in press brake operations as it directly impacts the bend's quality, the production speed, and the ability to perform complex bends. Tooling includes the punch and die set used in the bending process. High-quality tooling ensures accurate and consistent bends, reduces wear on the machine, and can be specifically designed for unique or complex bending tasks, increasing operational efficiency and output quality.

What materials can be bent with a pressbrake?

Press brakes are versatile machines capable of bending a variety of materials, including stainless steel, aluminium, and other metals, accommodating different thicknesses and specifications to meet diverse industrial needs.

What factors should be considered when selecting brake presses?

When selecting a press brake, consider the type of bending operations required, the range of materials and thicknesses you'll be working with, the desired precision and speed, and the overall production volume. Also, evaluate the machine's control system, safety features, tooling compatibility, and the ability to integrate with your existing production workflow. Choosing a machine that aligns with your operational needs and future growth can maximize efficiency and productivity.

What are the maintenance requirements for a press brake?

Regular maintenance for a press brake includes lubricating moving parts, checking hydraulic fluid levels, inspecting hoses and fittings for leaks, and ensuring the electrical components are in good working order. Tooling should be inspected for wear and damage, and the punch and die alignment should be checked to ensure consistent bending accuracy. Scheduled maintenance, along with immediate attention to any operational issues, helps prolong the life of brakepresses and maintain optimal performance.

Why choose Performatec for your press brake needs?
