Press brake mold installation and adjustment method

The press brake mold is a tool used by the press brake to shape and process the sheet metal. This tool is composed of various parts, and different molds are composed of different parts. It mainly realizes the processing of the shape of the article by changing the physical state of the formed material. It is used to make the blank into a work piece with a specific shape and size under the pressure of the press brake. When installing the press brake mold, be sure to check the status of the equipment, pay attention to personal safety when commissioning, follow the steps below to install and commission.

press brake mold installation and adjustment method

Machine adjustment

When installing the press brake mold, we must understand the performance of the machine first, turn on the press brake, patiently adjust and check to see if the machine can have used dust and iron debris. Prevent unnecessary trouble for later use.

Slider stroke adjustment

First check whether the ratio of the thickness of the press brake mold to the upper and lower modules is normal. The general slider needs to be controlled at the switching point of the stroke line. This should be paid attention to, otherwise it will cause the mold can’t be used normally, but some people still commit such an error.

Stroke module adjustment

After adjusting the slider stroke standard, the next step is to adjust the upper limit of the module. Generally speaking, the module should be set up to the highest point, and the module and switch should be set. In this way, the staying position of the module can be exited. Through some of the above operations, the production efficiency can be greatly increased. In this process, you also need to slow down the module. Because the module must be slowed down when it goes down to the bottom dead center, which protects the machine and mold.

Gap adjustment

The last is the adjustment of the gap between the press brake molds. First measure the gap between the upper module and the lower module. The reasonable gap needs to be determined according to the folded sheet.

Angle adjustment

Adjusting the bending angle of the mold of the press brake is also the most important link. The angle selection must be related to the product requirements. Generally speaking, when the mold is folded by 90 °, the angle must be set to the middle angle. The angle must be greater than the angle on both sides. Sometimes it may be tight. , Can be handled by adjusting the screws on the machine. After the adjustment, do not modify it if the product does not change the demand. Then, when bending, use the pressure gauge to calculate the accurate pressure number and adjust the pressure to avoid die collapse.
