Press brakes are essential pieces of equipment in the metal fabrication industry. They are used to bend sheet metal into various shapes and sizes. With proper care and maintenance, press brakes can last for many years. Here are some tips on how to increase the lifespan of your press brake:

Regular Maintenance

Regular maintenance is the key to keeping your press brake in good working condition. This includes:

Lubricating all moving parts: Moving parts should be lubricated regularly to reduce friction and wear.

Checking the oil level: Check the oil level in the press brake reservoir regularly and add oil as needed.

Inspecting the brake pads: Brake pads should be inspected regularly for wear and replaced as needed.

Cleaning the machine: The press brake should be cleaned regularly to remove dirt and debris.

Proper Operation

Proper operation is also important for extending the lifespan of your press brake. This includes:

Using the correct tooling: Use the correct tooling for the job you are doing.

Setting the correct tonnage: Set the correct tonnage for the material you are bending.

Bending the material correctly: Bend the material correctly to avoid damage to the workpiece or the machine.

Avoid Overloading

Overloading the press brake can put excessive stress on the machine and lead to premature failure. Avoid overloading the machine by:

Bending material within the machine’s capacity: Only bend material that is within the machine’s capacity.

Using the correct tooling: Use the correct tooling for the job you are doing.

Setting the correct tonnage: Set the correct tonnage for the material you are bending.

Proper Storage

When the press brake is not in use, it should be stored in a clean and dry place. This will help to protect the machine from rust and corrosion.
