Subtitled The Basic Information You Need to Know in Order to Design and Form Good Parts, this book contains a wide breadth of information about press brakes. The author uses his 45 years of experience with press brake tooling applications to provide a basic understanding of what to consider when selecting proper tooling, determining minimum machine requirements, using blank size calculations, and arriving at an acceptable bend sequence. The technical information allows the reader to understand the complex concepts and techniques used in forming operations. Although this book is based on an engineering background, the technical information has been simplified to allow press brake users to understand the complex concepts and techniques used in forming operations. This information is derived from real-world experience based on the actual parameters that have to be considered in order to produce quality parts.
