Thick Turret Opti-Bend

By Sheetmetal Tooling Tech

Wilson Tool’s Opti-Bend tooling enables sheet metal fabricators to perform 90o bends on a punch press. Available for either thick turret or Trumpf® style machines, Opti-Bend tooling eliminates time-consuming secondary operations typically performed on a press brake.

Using a rotating cam built into the die, the machine stroke simulates the cycling of a press brake, producing simple 90o bends with little or no sheet marking.

Features of the tooling include:
