However, whether you are bending small parts out of light gauge material on an all electric brake or large parts out of 1″ Thick plate a common challenge of maximizing throughput is the same in either application. There are a number of different ways that fabricators can look to maximize the time the press brake is bending parts rather than staying idle and below are a few avenues a shop can pursue to maximize their throughput Read More...
