Part in the above photo is 10 Ft. long, 10 Ga. Polished aluminum, (formed without protective cover), using a old Press Brake, with uneven gap as shown

Urethane V-Pads

PERFECT STRAIGHT BENDS are possible even on older Press Brakes with the bed being wavey or not perfectly parallel, just by placing a V-pad in the steel V-Die. As long as the punch is straight, a perfect straight bend is formed every time. No need for shimming or expensive Adustable Die Holders.

  • Triangular shaped urethane pads in different sizes just drop into corresponding size steel V-Dies.
  • As long as the punch is straight, you make a perfect straight bend...every time
  • V-Pads are available in sizes to fit standard Steel V-Dies with openings: 1/2", 1", 1-1/2" & 2".
  • Standard Lengths: Up to 8Ft. For longer bends, butt pads end to end , with no gap.

Ideal for bending Aluminum Diamond Plates or Checkered Plates, without smashing the diamond shapes. Radius bends of up to 1/2"R in 10Ga. Aluminum diamond plates.

As compared to ROLLA V-DIES, cost of our V-Pads are negligible, and do a better job, WITHOUT DAMAGING THE OUTER SURFACE OR THE DIAMOND SHAPES.

SHORT FLANGES that do not span the full width of the
v-opening of a steel V-Die, inserting a V-Pad in the V-Die fills the gap & enable bending flanges as short as 2-3 times metal thickness.

Sheet metal with large areas perforated can be bent into sharp or radiused shapes, without any distortion
