American Wilson Press Brake Crowning Table
American Wilson Press brake Crowning Table for Precise Sheet metal Bending
Bending a part over 4-feet long on a press brake can lead to a bowed appearance in the part or “the canoe effect” due to machine deflection.
The Wilson Express Crowning™ system is the precise and consistent option for controlling deflection on your press brake with a simple hand crank or electrically crowning the lower beam and securing dies with set screws or hydraulic power.
The Express Crowning™ system offers precise crowning and micro tuning. You have your choice of control for crowning power and for securing the die.
Your choice of set screws every inch along the beam for manual tightening, or
Hydraulically powered die holding
Use the hand crank with digital display, or
Use the machine’s CNC control to adjust the crown via an electric motor.
The Express Crowning™ system crowns the beam overall, as well as in smaller, micro-crown adjustments for fine tuning. Crowning adjustment details:
Overall crowning capability adjusts the beam up to 2.5mm to 3.5mm (depending on length)
Micro crowning, for fine-tuning adjustment, is available at points every 200mm (7.78”) on the beam. Micro-crown adjusts up to .76mm (.030”).
Adding a clamping system to your press brake is like adding new life to your machine in that it adds modern and efficient clamping and refreshes the bending surface. Clamps are also a way to dramatically reduce setup and changeover time. With solutions ranging from lightning speed push-button clamps, to a deflection controlling crowning system to quick lever-activated clamps or economical manual holders, Wilson Tool provides a clamping solution for every press brake.
