Acquainting You with The Ins and Outs of Press Brake Operating

If you are a press brake operator, bending materials must be a daily task for you to indulge into. However, bending materials successfully asks for an extensive knowledge about the functioning of machines and what exactly would be your role when it comes to operating it. In case you do not know much about working with press brakes, this article is for you. Here’s what you should know.

Press Brakes and Their Types

Search for “Amada press brake for sale” and you will come across several different types of press brakes. Take a look at some of them along with their specifications.

Hydraulic Press Brakes

Operators have been using these type of brakes for several years and they are a perfect fit when it comes to working with heavy workloads. They are available in the sizes of between 100 to 300 tons range and 50 feet in length. If you want to bend thick materials, this is the ‘to-go’ brake type for you.


Electronic Press Brakes

These press brakes are one of the latest batches in Amada machine replacement parts and come with several striking features. As one doesn’t need hydraulic oil, you wouldn’t face any situations when there are leaks, sealing and other issues that you might have to fix otherwise.

The best part about these brakes is that they require lesser electricity as compared to regularly used hydraulic brakes. This is because the motors of these brakes do not run continuously. These machines are available in small sizes (below 50 tons). However, you can always find them up to 300 tons. Also, they work swiftly and with more precision as compared to Hydraulic brakes.

Things You Must Know About Using a Press Brake

Check Tooling Tolerance

It is very important to keep a check on press brake tooling and the tolerance ever time you select a dye and punch you want to use.  Also, as an operator, you need to take care of the fact that the tooling matches the specifications that the manufacturer has provided you with and make modifications where needed.

The Bending Methods

Coining, Air Bending, and Bottom Bending are some of the majorly used press brake bending methods.


In this type of bending, the operator has to stamp the material between the punch and dye. When you give the needed amount of pressure, the punch tip penetrates into the material and dye starts to flow within it. The output obtained is accurate and asks for the utility of simple machines as compared to the other methods.

The only compromise here is that this kind of method asks for a large amount of tonnages which is above 50 tons/square inch. Also, the machines using this method ask for a lot of wear and tear and you would need a robust tool which curbs you from choosing different tooling options.

Air Bending

In this method, the material interacts only with the edge of the dye and the tip of the punch. In this method, the operator pushes the punch past the top of the dye to the V opening. During this process, it doesn’t touch the bottom of V. As the punch tip doesn’t get into the material, the size of the V opening of bottom dye controls the inner radius of the bend.

One of the major benefits of this method is that the operator can make up for the mistakes and modify the design. They just need to switch the bottom dye. In case you make use of an old model that works manually, don’t go with the air bend method. Using old machines means, you might end up making more errors and the precision is sure to go out of the window. It is better to get a new press brake. All you need to do is start looking for Amada press brake for sale and you will find the one that suits your need for sure.

Bottom Bending

In this method, the angle of the dye should match the angle of the workpiece. This asks for some degrees of adjustment so that there can be a spring back. One needs to place the material against the dye. Thereafter, the operator needs to force the radius of the punch in the material so that they can achieve the targeted angle.

Last, but not the least, they need to release and let the material release itself and spring back to come in contact with the dye once more. It is advisable to overbend the workpiece by certain degrees because if the coverage is high, there are chances of you damaging the tooling as well as the material.

If you are an operator, it is important for you to obtain all the training needed to operate the machines. So, before you start looking for Amada machine replacement parts, you must obtain a good experience with working and maintaining press brake machines.

SEASON'S READINGS A True Cowboy Christmas by Caitlin Crews
A True Cowboy Christmas (Cold River Ranch, #1)Cold Creek Ranch #1, I love when new series start off with Christmas books. Cold Creek Ranch is in Colorado up high in the Rocky Mountains, a hard place to live. I really enjoyed this book I loved the characters; Gray, Abby, and Becca were well written and easy to connect with. Gray is a hard man being raised by a man who was hateful, ungrateful, and just plain ornery Gray was determined never to be like his father. The biggest way to do that was to not repeat his mistakes he's already done it once and payed the price for it, marrying a flaky girl who couldn't keep her pants on, had no interest in staying at Cold Creek Ranch and died leaving with her lover. One good thing did come out of the marriage his daughter Becca. With his old man dead and buried and his brothers, Ty and Brody, wanting to sell of the land the brothers start to argue. Brody and Ty worry about Gray and they are afraid he will end up like their father, all alone and mean. So Gray comes up with the idea that he needs a wife, one that he knows is steadfast, loves Longhorn Valley and Cold Creek, someone with roots just as deep as his.

Abby Douglas has always loved Gray Everett and now he's proposing to her, something she's always dreamed of but not for the right reasons. Ever since Gray came up with the idea of marrying Abby he's looked at her in a new light more as a woman than just his neighbor and he likes what he sees. The more time he spends with her the more the attraction grows but Gray has spent to long with the main focus of his life as the ranch he's already more like his father than he thinks. All Gray needs is Abby's steadfastness, her unassuming beauty, and her honesty to knock some sense into him but is she willing to risk her heart for something that may never be reciprocated?  
Overall, this was a heartfelt and emotional read. The Everett boys aren't 100% mended but they are off to a great start.Abby and Becca have so much in common they form a quick bond and they are good for each other just as much as Abby is good for Gray. This story was addictive I didn't want it to end I look forward to the rest of the series.

ARC REVIEW Best of Luck by Kate Clayborn
Beginner's Luck - Kate Clayborn
Luck of the Draw - Kate Clayborn
Best of Luck - Kate Clayborn



Best of Luck (Chance of a Lifetime, #3)

Chance of a Lifetime #3, I have been impatiently waiting for this book since the characters were introduced to each other in the first book. This can be read as a stand alone but I really recommend reading the first two books to get the whole picture. This is written in third person with alternating perspectives of Greer and Alex. I loved this book the story and the characters so emotional. 

Greer, Kit and Zoe buy a lottery ticket never expecting to actually win, so far Kit followed her dream and bought a house and fell in love, Zoe quit her job and went on an amazing path of self discovery and fell in love too. Now it's Greer's turn who was finally able to follow her dream and go back to school. She's almost got her degree when they tell her she short credits for art.

Alex Alverin, Kit's older brother, is a world renowned photojournalist his plan to come to his sister's wedding and then take off again has to be revised when his debilitating panic attacks get worse. With the urging of his agent and Greer, who caught him in the middle of one during the wedding, he takes some time off. But he won't be idle on his time off Greer recruits his help with her art credit. Greer's only hope to get the art credit she needs is to take a photography class subtly using Alex to get the teacher to agree was aggravating but easy. Greer also gets Alex to agree to go see a therapist while he's here. Alex was always attracted to Greer but the more time he spends with her the more the attraction builds into something more, and vise versa, and the more he learns about her the more he's tempted to try and stay. Greer may have fallen in love with Alex but she knows him to well and is just waiting for him to leave again. Alex's fears are so deep rooted he doesn't know if his love for Greer is stronger than his wonderlust. 

Overall, this is my favorite of the three. Both of the character's histories play a part in why they act they way they do and how their budding relationship gives them a new perspective and allows them to look at their lives differently and finally be willing to change for the better. There is such deep emotion and fear that Kate Clayborn really puts you through the ringer with this one.

I think the sun's might be setting on this one for me...
Dawn and Dusk - Dirk Greyson,Andrew McFerrin

'Dawn and Dusk' is the 3rd installment in Dirk Greyson's (read Andrew Grey's) 'Day and Knight' series and while the story was ok and had a fairly solid plot carrying it. I just wasn't enamored of the characters. 


I've given this one a solid try and truthfully it's just not getting better. I did enjoy the mystery that was happening in this one. Day and Knight are back from their latest adventure and Day's feeling like they've stalled...it would seem that what happened on the assignment...stays on the assignment and while Day would prefer something that was moving forward more than anything he just wants to know where things are at. He's not ready to be anyone's 'dirty little secret' but if that's all Knight wants than they need to work that out. 


When Day's brother turns up missing though he realizes he's got more important things to deal with like getting to where his brother is and finding out what's happened to him. Knight wants to help him but not at the risk of Day rushing in with no plan and no back up when he's got no idea what's happening...there's just too many 'no's' in that equation for his liking.


As Knight steps up to support day and  help him look for answers to find out what's happened to his brother both men are also forced to examine their relationship...where it's at and where they want it to go.


Once again Andrew McFerrin is the narrator for this story and he's definitely on the plus side of things for me with this one. One of if not the biggest pet peeve I have with an audio book series that has the same MCs throughout is when the narrator changes from book to book. It's not a matter of good or bad but I just find that no two narrators interpret the characters the same way and as a result how a character sounds changes from narrator to narrator and I just can't get into the story. But Andrew McFerrin has narrated all 3 of these books and even though this may not be my favorite series it's one that I've enjoyed because of this and truly chances are at some point in the future when I want to hear something different but I don't feel like scrolling through screen after screen of book titles I'll take another shot at this and who knows I may feel the same...I may enjoy it just a little bit more...only time will tell.


This is another series that's left me torn as to whether or not I'll continue listening to it. I think it's going to depend on where things are going for this pair and how strongly the next book catches my attention. I know there are a lot of reviews/ratings out there for people who have really liked this one so it's definitely a case of to each their own but be fair check them all out because what works for one person doesn't always work for every one and vice versa!



An audio book of 'Dawn and Dusk' was graciously provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
