Press Brake Bending Follower Support

Front Sheet Follower Supports System

The hydraulic press brakes with Sheet supports follower system for bending long and thin sheets,It basically consists of a pair of sheet supports placed on the front of the machine at the height of the bending line (bottom tool). Supports are controlled by the CNC, following and supporting the sheet during the bending process.

Front Sheet Follower Supports System

Bending Follower Features

A counterbend occurs when we bend a very large, heavy and thin plate. The overhang generates a torque that makes the sheet bend around the die edge under its own weight, as we can see in the drawing. The sheet lifter helps to avoid this type of damage, supporting the plate during the entire bending cycle.
AP1 - AP2 CNC-controlled interpolated axes
Light solution, easy to move
Adjustable according to the size of the workpiece
Improved shop floor efficiency
Less physical strain and safety risks
Protection from counterbends and scratches
Bend as closed as 70°
R axis -30/+170 mm; maximum die opening 100 to 160 mm
Brush and support shaft dim. 350x900 mm extendable up to 1200 mm.
Active or inactive modes that can be controlled directly on the sheet follower to avoid any safety risks (LED light located on the sheet follower).
