Press Brake Safety operating procedure

1. Before starting up, the press brake punch and die should be cleaned and wiped clean.

2. Select an appropriate die according to sheet metal thickness, and the V die size is generally equal to or greater than 8 times the thickness of the sheet metal.

3. The bending force of the workpiece shall be calculated based on the bending force calculation formula, and the bending force shall not exceed 1000kn

4. When bending narrow plates, the working pressure of the system should be appropriately reduced to avoid damaging the mold

5. When adjusting the slider stroke, ensure that the adjustment amount is less than 100 to avoid damaging the machine

6. Before bending, the gap between the upper and lower molds should be adjusted evenly and uniformly

7. Check the oil level in the oil tank, start the oil pump, and check if there are any abnormalities in the hydraulic pipelines and oil pump

8. The bent sheet metal should be placed in the middle of the mold, and the machine should not be loaded on one side to avoid affecting the accuracy of the workpiece and the machine. If some workpieces need to be worked on one side, the maximum loading should not exceed 250kn, and both sides must be bent simultaneously

9. When bending, do not place your hands between the molds, and do not hold narrow and small materials with your hands. Only one piece of material can be bent at a time, and it is not allowed to operate press brakes with multiple pieces in sections at the same time.

10. After completing the homework, the oil pump should be turned off and the power should be cut off.
