Control Deflection Once and For All

Bending a part over 4-feet long on a press brake can lead to a bowed appearance in the part or “the canoe effect” due to machine deflection.

The Express Crowning® system is the precise and consistent option for controlling deflection on your press brake with a simple hand crank or electrically crowning the lower beam and securing dies with set screws or hydraulic power.

Enjoy Savings with a Crowning Solution

See how the Express Crowning® System saves both time and money by making longer bends consistent bend after bend. Precise deflection compensation allows you complete control over the angle bent.
