Hydraulic Press Brake Components

hydraulic press brake is an advanced machine that can meet the needs of different industries. Its main features include high precision, high output power, and a stable run system. It also has an automatic hydraulic clamp that can cut labor intensity and improve the production process. In addition, this machine can also calculate the bending depth automatically. It can do this by using an imported grating ruler that measures the position of both the ram and lower die. Aside from this, it can also automatically compensate for the bending angle of the workpiece. It also comes with an intuitive user interface.

Hydraulic pump:

Hydraulic press brakes have several major components that help make them more reliable and efficient. These components work together to transfer energy to the ram, apply pressure, and lubricate the parts. They are typically powered by an electric motor or an engine, which drives a hydraulic pump. These pumps can have different configurations, such as gear pumps, vane pumps, axial piston pumps, or radial piston pumps. The hydraulic pump is an important part of hydraulic press brakes because it produces power and transmits it to the hydraulic cylinders. For instance, a hydraulic pump can produce up to 5,000 psi of pressure, enough to maintain the flow of hydraulic fluid and apply pressure.

Hydraulic fluid:

There are many major parts to a hydraulic press brake. It’s essential to maintain these parts to ensure their proper performance. The oil level should be checked periodically, ideally daily, and the oil filter should be changed or replaced as needed. Besides oil level, the hydraulic pump should also be checked annually, as age and friction can cause it to fail. Be sure to drain the hydraulic system of any air to prevent damage to the pump and the hydraulic system.

Hydraulic fluid cleanliness:

Hydraulic fluid cleanliness in a hydraulic press brake system is crucial for maintaining the health of your machine. Particle contamination in hydraulic fluid deteriorates its performance and degrades the hydraulic components. It also damages equipment. The level of particle contamination that can be tolerated depends on the hydraulic system. For normal-pressure systems, fluid cleanliness is defined by the ISO 16/13 standard.

Oil cleanliness:

One of the most important parts of hydraulic press brake maintenance is checking the hydraulic oil. If the hydraulic oil is dirty, it can affect the overall performance of the press brake. Fortunately, there are simple methods to ensure that hydraulic press brake oil is clean.
