Eliminate secondary bends

Share This Post

Wilson Tool International has developed Opti-Bend tooling for punch press operations that gives fabricators the ability to create bends up to 90° on the punch press to eliminate the need for secondary operations at the press brake.

The tooling includes a rotating cam in the die that rotates and bends the material during the punching stroke, which simulates the cycling of a press brake with little or no sheet marking on soft or high polished materials.

The tooling is available for use in the following types of punch press machines:

Thick Turret

• Available in single hit and progressive styles

• Available in B,C,D,E stations

• Works in hydraulic machines with hover functionality

• Maximum bend: 90 degrees with the capability of 3 degrees over bend

Trumpf-style (more info)

• Allows for bending flanges with forms in them

• Available in single hit and progressive styles

• Works in Group I machines only (requires hover functionality)

• Maximum bend: 90° with the capability of 3° over bend
