Understanding Press Brake Crowning
Get a proper understanding of press brake deflection and crowning (deflection compensation is critical for anyone required to specify or operate a press brake). Unfortunately, crowning devices are among the most frequently misunderstood features used on today's press brakes. A built-in, or retrofit crowning device, when properly used, can greatly improve part accuracy and productivity. This presentation describes how and why press brakes deflect and when to anticipate the need for the machine, or the operator, to compensate for deflection to achieve good results. This presentation includes an in-depth look at common crowning systems and how to use them properly. Also presented are misconceptions regarding crowning devices and applications where deflection compensation is not required.
