Various dies could be used on press brake, so it is possible to get exact designed shape wanted. There are a number of press brake forming dies available to use, and they are: hemming, tube and pipe-forming, acute angle, beading, curling, channel-forming, rotary bending, offset, v-dies, multiple-bend, radius dies, U-bend, gooseneck, 90 degree, four-way die blocks, corrugating, box forming, seaming, and rocker-type.
Forming dies called hemming dies are used for certain jobs, and the process takes two stages. First part of the process will use an acute angle die, and then a flattening process will ensue thereafter. Curling dies are used for those items that need to have coiling around the edges. Similar to tube and pipe die, the difference is that they have larger tube formed because a mandrel is used to shape them.
It is also possible to make a box shape with press brake forming. For that, with using the punch sectionally, so that it can ultimately form right angles. Those right angles will ultimately shape a box by producing a series of rectangular shapes. With this punch, height is needed so that the sides of the box you make achieve the proper height.
There are a number of different press brake dies to choose, but with press brakes, V-dies are the most common type of die used. They come in all different sizes and openings, so that it needs to get right size and shape to produce the right angle, depending on how to bend the metal sheet.
Press brake forming is usually used in metal working, and this is one of the most ubiquitous tools in the industry and widely used.
