New Standard Crowning

WILA Crowning systems fully compensate for the deflection in press brakes. This results in a consistent bending angle across the entire length of the machine. WILA New Standard Crowning Systems utilize  a  series of patented adjustable wedges known as Wila Waves.

Eliminate press brake tolerances: Tx- and Ty axis

The accuracy of the bending process is determined by the tolerances along the Ty and Tx axis: vertical and horizontal axis. The Ty axis value is decisive in determining the parallelism between punches and dies. The Ty axis adjustment, which is normally incorporated into the bottom of the Crowning Systems and Bottom Tool Holder, is able to easily and effectively correct accumulated machine tolerance across the length of the whole machine. The Tx axis value relates to the position of the bending axis in relation to the back gauge, critical for producing accurate flange lengths. The Tx axis adjustment has been included in all Tool Holders suitable for press brakes featuring the Universal Press Brake (UPB) hole pattern.

Heavy Duty

WILA's New Standard ‘HD’ Heavy Duty Tooling System is a new addition to our state of the art New Standard product line. It represents a system of Premium Tool Holders (Clamping and Crowning systems) that have been specially designed for high tonnage bending applications.

The WILA Wave

New Standard Crowning Systems are based on the WILA Wave System. This opposing wave technology automatically supports dies across the length of the press brake. The different  angles built into the waves automatically compensate for machine deflection from a single adjustment point. Lateral adjustments are also possible for correcting machine and tooling tolerances at specific locations.

The advantages

New Standard Crowning

Retrofit Crowning systems

Always an productivity enhanching solution
WILA offers these systems especially for press brakes that were not outfitted with built-in Crowning  systems. They feature the same features and benefits our New Standard Pro Crowning Systems.
  • Featuring B2 Tang on the bottom for mounting to machines with to existing groove in the lower beam (Image B2).
  • B3 Bolt-down base for mounting to machines with an existing bolt-hole pattern on the lower beam (Image B3).

New Standard Bottom Tool Holders

Ideal for press brakes which do not require a crowing system, or for press brakes with a crowning system already incorporated into the lower beam. Compact design and fully integrated clamping system for dies. Available with hydraulic or manual clamping.
