Solutions for
crane arms

• Crane arms are one of the most difficult applications to bend because the parts are long. Exact bends and maximum precision are required every time.

• When bending long parts with multiple hits – 30-80 bends in the same profile – it is important to stop small errors from accumulating. 

• If the bend is not accurate it will cause problems and increase production time in the welding process.

Crane arms require maximum precision and exact bends.

Our solutions:

When it comes to bending crane arms, we have the expertise to provide you with the perfect press brake solution to suit your unique bending needs. Our superior precision and repeatability allow you to optimize your production.

Solutions for truck mounted cranes for 640-1000 tons press force.

Truck mounted cranes.

• Revolving punch tip: easier, faster, and safer to change the radius of the bend.

• The press brake cell for truck mounted cranes can be fully automated.

Mobile cranes.

• Flexi Crown – local corrections for every ~600 mm over the full bend length to compensate for any material variations across the length of the part, guaranteeing accurate bending results.

• Back and front gauges allow exact positioning of the sheet, and the angle measuring system assists in reaching the correct bending angle during production, resulting in an exact bend – every time.

• Rotating tool magazine makes radius tools changes less heavy for the operator.

• Fully CNC controlled Variable Die Tool allows changes to die opening to be made directly from the control system within seconds.

• The rigid machine frame ensures high precision during the full machine life span, 30+ years, allowing you to produce current and future high demanding products for a long period of time.
