Here are some key points to consider when buying an Electro-Hydraulic Servo Synchro CNC Press Brake:
- Type of Press Brake: There are three primary types of press brakes: mechanical, hydraulic, and electric. Each type has its unique features and benefits, so it’s essential to understand these distinctions when choosing the right press brake for your operation.
- Hydraulic Press Brake: Hydraulic press brakes utilize a hydraulic system to move the ram, allowing for increased pressure and force during the bending process. This increased power provides more accurate bending and greater control compared to mechanical press brakes.
- CNC Press Brakes: CNC Press Brakes use an electro-hydraulic servo system to control the two-cylinder synchronization, with the international standard grating ruler to realize full closed-loop control. It features high precision synchronization, high bending accuracy, and high repeat positioning accuracy.
- Electro-Hydraulic Servo Numeric-Control Press Brake: Known for its high efficiency and precision in bending sheet metal. The size of the V-groove on the lower die should be adjusted according to the thickness of the sheet. It is typically larger than 8 times the thickness of the sheet.
- Hydraulic System: Understanding the hydraulic system is crucial as it plays a significant role in the operation of a press brake. The hydraulic system consists of a powerplant hydraulic pump that converts mechanical energy into pressure energy, an actuator hydraulic cylinder that converts fluid pressure energy into mechanical energy, and various hydraulic control valves used to control the direction, pressure, and flow of the fluid.
- Maintenance and Troubleshooting: Familiarize yourself with common troubleshooting techniques and maintenance practices for your press brake’s hydraulic system.
Remember to also consider factors such as your budget, workspace constraints, specific application needs, and local service and support availability when making your decision. Always consult with a trusted professional or supplier before making a purchase.
