Improving Plate Bending Throughput

Press brake tooling options can help (by Frank Rajk)


As fabricators experience increased demand for heavy-plate forming services for the shipbuilding, structural steel, and heavy equipment industries, they need to improve thick-plate bending throughput. For a long time fabricators created these forms made from high-tensile-strength materials using roll forming equipment and welding segments together. However, this method can be both time-consuming and costly.
