SPECIAL WIPE TOOL PBS/E

SPECIAL WIPE TOOL PBS/E

Designed and manufactured by Maggiolini Lame srl in the 60s, the tangential die or WIPE TOOL PBS / E , also known as the “Il Maggiolino” , has evolved over the decades thanks to the experience of the users associated with our engineer’s, up to the current version with all variants and options to suit every type of bending requirements. Our experience allows us to guarantee the tangential die up to 10 years! The only original tangential die is Maggiolini!

The main features of the wipe tool are: bending up to 3mm thickness metal sheets

  • CONSTANT ANGLES ON LENGTHS
  • SAFETY
  • THE METAL SHEET IS IN HORIZONTAL DURING BENDING
  • SHARP EDGES
  • TRANSFORMS THE PRESS BRAKE INTO A MANUAL PANEL MACHINE

WITH AIR BENDING METHOD :

  • Metal sheet raise on both sides
  • The lifting of the sheet must be accompanied by hands
  • To bend long panels needs more people

 WITH TANGENTIAL BENDING METHOD:

  • The metal sheet lays horizontally during bending
  • Fast execution
  • Safety

The operation is as follows:
the blank holder locks the sheet on the anvil  and the bender (fully hardened) running down the fold breaking down the sheet.
The wipe tool then opens again go back to the upper point allowing execution of successive folds (up to 5).
the wipe tool can be mounted in two ways: PBS (hiding bord) and PBE (raising bord)
the possibility to combine two ways allows to bend  upward and downward without flipping the metal sheets, in a nutshell it is how to turn the press brake (also mechanical one) in a MANUAL PANELING MACHINE
