Supercharge your press brake!


Craig-Burke-of-Standard-Sheet-Metal"Before the upgrade, we'd have to round up two or three guys to put in one of our dies, some of which weigh up to 400 lbs, or we'd have to use a forklift. On top of that, some of our older dies just didn't make sense. Now, they just pop the new dies in, press the hydraulics and they're done." -- Craig Burk, Plant Supervisor, Standard Sheet Metal

Instant Bolt-On Press Brake Performance.

When a new press brake isn't in the budget, the WILA Retrofit Program can be a great way to extend the life of your current press brake, improve performance, and make your bending operations more productive. A WILA retrofit can be performed on any press brake, adapting it for use with WILA New Standard or American Style tooling, clamping, and crowning. With installations typically requiring no more than four hours and no custom machining, a WILA retrofit provides instant, bolt-on performance for your press brake operations.

Is a retrofit right for my operations?

Opting for a retrofit over investing in a new press brake can save a lot of money in your initial investment, while yielding high returns in productivity for the long term.

In alignment with lean manufacturing strategy, WILA's quick change tooling, clamping, and crowning systems enable our customers to work smarter, not just harder. Customers who switch to WILA can expect faster throughput, better part quality, reduced scrap materials, and reduced work-in-process inventory.

At WILA, we understand that you want your investment to work for you, which is why we have put together a variety of tools in our Retrofit Assessment Guide to help you make the most informed decision possible for your business. In the Retrofit Assessment Guide, you can find financial tools to help you determine your return on investment, as well as technical resources to help determine feasibility of implementation.
