METALMAQ manufactures a special tool divided into several sections, to make a multiple bend and intended for a press brake AMADA of 3 meters.
THE DIFFICULTY OF THE PIECE
Our customer manufactures trays for soundproofing and decoration ceilings, making a lot of production of this type of pieces. He does the query to make three folds in one fell swoop and because it is a tray with four faces, he needs to divide the tools to be able to finish the piece without releasing it and thus performing all the bending operations. Bending operations will be carried out in a 3 meters AMADA press brake, with Promecam tie system (also known as European system, Amada system or Mebusa system).
SOLUTION ADOPTED BY METALMAQ
Our Technical Office designs the special tool and divides it into 6 sections, so that all the measurements of trays made by our customer can be made by combining the different sections.
The tool is composed of the punch (the upper part of the tool) and the matrix (the lower part of the tool), the guide being a very important part, since it allows us to guarantee its good functioning and perfect alignment (we think that in a special tool that makes several bends at the same time it tends to produce “tensions” and these can cause imperfections in the metal sheet, therefore the importance of a good guide of the tool, to avoid all these “movements”).
The result, in view of the attached video, is a tool divided in six sections, with built-in stop (with the possibility of changing the stop by moving a simple screw), with a perfect guide of the tool (to avoid movements in its operation) and with an excellent result, that is to say, it makes all three folds at once with an optimal result. We have increased the productivity of the piece without compromising its quality !!
