Using a press brake with improper tooling can have major consequences, including inaccurate parts and broken tooling. In a new article in The Fabricator, MC Machinery National Press Brake Product Manager David Bray explains how tool selection helps to produce quality parts while keeping everyone safe.
“Knowledge is the ultimate tool when it comes to running an efficient bending operation.”
– David Bray, MC Machinery National Press Brake Product Manager
Press brake operators need to understand types of tooling along with how to select and inspect tooling, Bray says. Shop owners should encourage press brake operators to participate in training that is often offered by tooling suppliers and machine tool vendors.
