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
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.
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
