Special Purpose Die Sets

Die sets 144 and 145 are tipped angle sets that are used to form deep channels in two hits. They are used for up to 12 gauge material. They may cause marking and bowing in longer length parts; and at heavier gauges, put extra wear on the ram of the press brake. Die set 146 makes a "W" shape in one stroke. A heel may be added for heavier gauge material. Die set 147 is used when the flange length is too short to be safely formed with standard tooling. This set has built in gauging and is heeled to prevent spreading.

Die set 148 is used to form a radius on a part that has preformed up-turned flanges on the ends. The bottom die has clapper plates to hold the flanges and help to minimize flange deformation while forming the radius.
