Sheet Metal Brake Bending

Published

on

Sheet Metal Brake Bending

brake is a metalworking machine that allows the bending of sheet metal brake. The cornice brake allows only simple bends and folds, while the box and panorama brake also allows box and panorama shapes to be shaped. It is also known as a bender or brake bender and in the UK as a sheet metal bender or simply as a press brake.


Description


The brake consists of a flat surface on which the material is laid and a clamping bar that lowers and firmly holds the material during bending. This clamping action can be manual, automatic or pedal operated. The machine’s gate-like faceplate is hinged and can be lifted, causing the material, laid out on a straight edge, to flex to follow the slab.


Bends can be at any angle up to a practical limit of about 120 degrees, slightly more in the case of a press brake. If the fold is narrow enough, you can make a tighter fold (eg for a hem) by inserting the fold under the clamp bar and lowering it.


Box and plate brake


In a box brake (also known as a pin brake [1]), the retaining bar includes several removable blocks that can be removed and repositioned to allow bending of limited areas of a sheet metal part or parts already in use. , partially formed pieces.
Once bent, the shape of the box or tray is completed using screws, welding, rivets, or other metal fastening process.


Bar folder


This is a simplified brake, usually much smaller than eaves or box and plate brakes. As a rule, one handle clamps the workpiece and bends it in one motion, but the depth is often much less than a shoulder or a box brake can handle.


brake press


This is a more complex tool that forms predetermined curves by clamping the workpiece between the appropriate punch and die.


dimensions


Brakes come in sizes suitable for lightweight aluminum or brass for small boxes, and manual to industrial size, balanced hydraulic or manual machines suitable for large steel sheets.

HOW TO WATCH THE HARRY POTTER MOVIES

Everyone came into the Wizarding World through the Harry Potter movies, which introduced us to a gifted 11-year-old, his friends Ron and Hermione, and their hallowed school of magic, Hogwarts. Watching the Harry Potter movies in order, seeing the story unfold chronologically in universe, used to be as easy as finding the one where Daniel Radcliffe looks youngest and starting from there.

But the series has expanded now with the Fantastic Beasts movies, set some 70 years before The Sorcerer’s Stone. So to watch the Harry Potter movies in order, your journey now begins with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, set in 1926 and starring Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scarmander. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is set in 1927. The third Fantastic Beasts intends to release July 2022, with two more movies to close out the Scarmander and Grindelwald saga.

There’s also a Harry Potter series early in development for HBO Max. For now, see our guide below on how to watch all Harry Potter movies in order.

FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM (2016)

Critics Consensus: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them draws on Harry Potter’s rich mythology to deliver a spinoff that dazzles with franchise-building magic all its own.

Starring: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol

FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD (2018)

Starring: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol

Directed By: David Yates

HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER’S STONE (2001)

Critics Consensus: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone adapts its source material faithfully while condensing the novel’s overstuffed narrative into an involving — and often downright exciting — big-screen magical caper.

Synopsis: Adaptation of the first of J.K. Rowling’s popular children’s novels about Harry Potter, a boy who learns on his eleventh… 

Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, John Cleese

Directed By: Chris Columbus

HARRY POTTER AND THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS (2002)

Critics Consensus: Though perhaps more enchanting for younger audiences, Chamber of Secrets is nevertheless both darker and livelier than its predecessor, expanding and improving upon the first film’s universe.

Synopsis: The follow-up to “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” finds young wizard Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) and his friends, Ron…

Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Kenneth Branagh

Directed By: Chris Columbus

HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN (2004)

Critics Consensus: Under the assured direction of Alfonso Cuaron, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban triumphantly strikes a delicate balance between technical wizardry and complex storytelling.

Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Gary Oldman

Directed By: Alfonso Cuarón

HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE (2005)

Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Robbie Coltrane

Directed By: Mike Newell

Top 5 car trips

Published

Top 5 car trips

Enjoying the freedom to choose when and where to stop is priceless, which is why traveling by car  is one of the best ways to travel. Not feeling tied to bus or train schedules or relying on taxis or rideshares make up for having to drive, sometimes hundreds of miles a day. If we add to this that on many occasions renting a car with time can mean paying up to half the usual price, car trips can be much cheaper than it may seem initially. There are many ideal countries to travel by car, we have made a selection of what we think are the 10 best car trips .

1. Iceland

Iceland is, without a doubt, one of the best car or campervan trips in the world . If you have a couple of weeks, you can complete a circular route to the island, without practically ever leaving the famous Highway 1, since most of the island’s tourist attractions are located around it. In Iceland it is possible to enjoy landscapes that seem from another planet, glaciers, waterfalls adorned with rainbows, volcanoes, black sand beaches or glacial lagoons, from the car and we can assure you that driving in the Land of Ice and FireIt is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have on your travels. To make routes through the interior of the island, it is best to rent a 4×4 and to stay, it is best to book in advance, since there are not many and those that are available sell out quickly, especially in high season, which includes the months of July-August and part of September.

2. Tuscany

Although we have always thought that Italy is a perfect country to travel by road, there are several areas of the country that we believe are worthwhile to make a route by car . And despite it being difficult to choose only one, if we have to choose, the selected one would be La Toscana , one of the romantic trips that we have enjoyed the most and which we would repeat without hesitation. See its cornfields and vineyards, medieval villages and cities like Lucca, Volterra, San Gimignano, Siena…, being able to stop anywhere to taste its gastronomy in one of its many restaurants, make Tuscany one of our favorite places in the world. The best and, above all, the cheapest way to get to this area is to take a low-cost flight to Pisa, where you can rent a car at the same airport and in about two hours be in Siena, the heart of Tuscany, from where you can start to trace the route through the area, making a base in a city that you like or deciding on the fly, where to stay to sleep. Do you sign up for this idea?

3. Western United States

The trip to the West Coast of the United States is one of the longest trips we have made by car, but at the same time one of the most spectacular. Being able to visit incredible parks such as Yellowstone, Arches, Monument Valley, Antelope Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Death Valley or Yosemite, gave us some of the most beautiful images of the trip, which we will surely never forget. Being amazed by the immense Grand Canyon, doing a small part of Route 66, living (and sometimes hating) Las Vegas or sleeping in roadside motels, are just some of the many things you can do on a road trip .how are you. You must bear in mind that most cars in the US are automatic, so it is important to practice a little before going or even in the same parking lot where you pick up the car before hitting the road. It is also an obligation  to have good insurance, for the car as well as for you, something very important if you do not want to go bankrupt if you have a mishap in the United States.

4. Austrian

Austria is another of the best car trips you can do in Europe. A good time to do this route are the summer months, from June to September, since having many interesting areas at high altitude, such as the Tyrol area or the Grosslockner road, you will have more possibilities to access and not risk that are closed or to circulate you need chains. There are many places to see in Austria , if you decide on this trip by car you can not miss Hallstatt, the most beautiful town in Austria , the cities of Vienna , Salzburg or Innsbruck, which are also spectacular, as well as the Valley of the Danube, the Tyrol area or the Krimml falls.

5. Scotland, one of the best car trips

Scotland was one of our first rental car trips and to this day we can say that it is still one of the best trips we have ever taken. A good circular route by car can take us about two weeks, leaving from Glasgow or Edinburgh. There are many things to see in Scotland , land of castles, some of them as beautiful as Dunnotar Castle, Crathes Castle, Fraser Castle or the spectacular Elian Donan Castle, although it is also a land of lakes, some of them essential as Loch Maree, Loch Lomond or the famous Loch Ness with its Urquhart Castle. Also, if your driving route includes a few extra days, you cannot leave Scotland without visiting the Isle of Skye, seeing St. Andrews or getting lost in the historic center ofEdinburgh .
Keep in mind when renting a car that you drive on the left, so it is best to take it easy for the first few hours, being very attentive to the direction of travel and even being used to it, it is best to look at both sides to make sure of the direction of traffic.
