Braking, or bending, is a metal processing technique that uses a press brake machine to shape and cut metal sheets. This metal processing technique is widely used in automotive, construction, and manufacturing industries for applications that require precise shaping and cutting of metal sheets, ensuring the production of high-quality components and structures.
It offers the advantages of efficiency, accuracy, and versatility in shaping and cutting metal sheets to meet specific design requirements.
Braking works by clamping a metal sheet between a punch and die on a press brake machine. The machine applies high force to the metal sheet, causing it to bend or deform along the desired shape. By adjusting the position and angle of the punch and die, precise cuts and bends are achieved, creating various components and structures with efficiency and accurac
