A press brake is a computer numeric controlled (CNC) piece of equipment which makes precision bends, punches or cuts into material. Press brake operators produce parts and tools from metal, plastic or other materials. They control speed, material feed and path of cut by looking at the blueprints or plans for the finished product. Press brake operators also ensure the machines are operating correctly and producing a high-quality product. In this week’s blog, we discuss the environmentally friendly features of press brakes.

1) Hydraulic Press Brake 

The hydraulic press brake model continues to be the most eco-friendly. This is mainly because of its economic energy consumption.  

2) Developing Technology Requires Less Maintenance 

While mechanical profile equipment has been somewhat short-lived in the past, new state-of-the-art technology is being designed by engineers to strengthen the durability of this equipment. This means it requires less maintenance and is therefore, more environmentally friendly as wastage is reduced. Creating more high quality equipment that lasts a long time is crucial to being kind to our planet. 

3) New Features Reduce Energy Consumption 

The more energy a machine consumes, the more detrimental it is to the environment. However, new innovative features are being developed to decrease energy consumption.  

4) Noiseless and Vibration Free Equipment To Help Stop Noise Pollution 

Noise pollution is a bothersome issue that needs to be addressed. Luckily, there are innovative press brakes which perform noiseless and vibration free operations.
