, , , , ,

A lot of press brake operators get very confused when they’re setting the stroke data (orthe Y-axis data) in the press brake controller, especially for the old type press brake.Theydon’t know what exactly press brake stroke they should set, so the only way to solve theproblem is by testing again and again.

Definitely, this is not the right way.
Here SMBC will show you how to calculate press brake stroke length with exact formula.

Firstly, please see below the schematic diagram.l will take the data on it as an example.

And the formula to calculate press brake stroke is:
