FMA Press Brake Event Highlights

On May 20-21, 2019 we had the opportunity to host a Precision Press Brake Certificate Course at our headquarters in Elk Grove Village, IL. The event was organized by FMA (Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International) and there was an attendance of around 40 people.

During this two-day event, attendees got the chance to take a deep dive into the theories and math fundamentals behind press brake functions. They left learning how to:

  • Calculate accurate bend deductions
  • Select the best tooling for the job
  • Determine proper forming methods

Aside from the classroom training, attendees got to see our press brakes in action and ask any questions regarding the process and technology. They also received a tour of our facility and were encouraged to ask questions about any other MC Machinery piece of equipment.

If you were interested in participating and couldn’t make it, don’t worry! FMA has various certification courses throughout the year. For more information on the next course available, visit fmanet.org/pbcertificate.
