Bending and Flattening without changing tools

Time-consuming tool changes disrupt the production flow and cost a lot of money. That is why experts at WILA are continuously developing new solutions. Combining WILA's New Standard punches BIU-051, BIU-061, and BIU-062 (New Standard) and BIU-809 and BIU-810 (American Style) with our OZU-082, OZU-083, OZU-381, and OZU-382 (New Standard) and OZU-815 and OZU-816 (American Style) Hemming Dies makes it possible to bend and flatten hemming operations without changing tooling. The same is true of the combination of our BIU-001, BIU-011, BIU-021, and BIU-031 Punches (New Standard) and BIU-805 and BIU-815 Punches (American Style) and our DDU-001, DDU-002 (New Standard) and DDU-801 and DDU-802 (American Style) Hemming Dies. Obviously, these solutions will help you to save a lot of time by avoiding having to handle the sheet material twice.

More New Standard flattening techniques

At WILA, we also have additional flattening tooling, including spring-loaded flattening dies as well as hydraulically lifted hemming tables for high production hemming, and flattening dies for thicker materials. The process is the same as in other hemming operations in which you make a 30-degree bend as the first step. The upper beam then retracts, allowing you to remove the part.

The second step involves the upper beam coming back down and pushing the punch deeper into the die opening on the die. While the flattening operation is performed differently among the wide variety of hemming dies that we offer, you can always be assured of producing the highest quality finished parts.

Ideal up to 1.5 mm sheet thickness

Depending on the selected tools, these New Standard and American Style Hemming Tool combinations can process materials up to a thickness of 1.5 mm. However, they are particularly well suited for materials with a thickness up to 1.2 mm. At WILA, press brake technology never stands still. We enthusiastically renew and fine-tune our products on a daily basis in order to realize even greater productivity benefits.
