The process of adjusting the gibb, which is a mechanical component that controls the clearance and smooth movement between the ram and the frame of a press brake.
Inside Bend Radius
The radius of curvature on the inside surface of a bent material. It is measured from the centerline of the material to the innermost point of the bend.
The distance between the edge of the material and the bend line on the inside of the bend. It ensures proper material positioning for accurate bending.
A coefficient used in press brake bending calculations to determine the neutral axis position and the bend allowance. It accounts for the material’s characteristics, such as its thickness, elongation, and tensile strength.
The movable beam or ram of a press brake that exerts force on the material to perform the bending operation. It holds the punch and moves vertically to apply pressure.
A physical stop or limit installed on a press brake’s back gauge system to control the position of the material and ensure accurate and consistent bending.
Minimum Inside Radius
The smallest radius that can be achieved during a bending operation without causing material damage or deformation beyond acceptable limits.
The central axis or line within a material that remains unchanged during the bending process. It experiences little to no deformation while the outer layers stretch or compress.
The distance between the edge of the material and the bend line on the outside of the bend. It ensures proper material positioning for accurate bending.
The area between the upper and lower beams of a press brake where the material is pinched during the bending operation. It is important to keep fingers and hands clear of pinch points for safety reasons.
