Which Tool Style is Right for Me?

Nov 16, 2017


Whether you’re in the market for a new press brake or just looking to optimize your current machines, it’s important to do more than evaluate the machine capabilities. It’s also essential to understand how the tool style that machine utilizes will limit or enhance your operation. American precision, planer machined, European or WT-style precision … each make of press brake tooling comes with its strengths and weaknesses. Make sure you’re getting the style that’s right for your needs.

In this webinar, we’ll compare and contrast the important ways tool styles differ. You will receive resources to help you make choices in the future, whether you’re buying a new machine or just looking to retool.
Our presenter will cover the following topics:

  • What are the pros and cons of the most common tool styles?
  • What does each tool style do well and not so well?
  • Have you been using the tool style that makes the most sense for your operation?
  • How can this information help with purchasing your next brake?

Note: This webinar will be recorded.

Thursday, November 16
1:00 PM Central Time
45 minutes
