Hydraulic Press Brakes

If it says Betenbender on the nameplate,
you've got a Hydraulic Press Brake that will do the job.

It's versatile, accurate, rugged, easy to operate and easy to maintain. That's the way Betenbender makes its Press Brakes.

Whether you bend plastic or steel, there's a Betenbender Hydraulic Press Brake to match your needs, ranging from the 20-ton model to the 550-ton. No matter the size, each machine features convenient operation for maximum output and ease of maintenance for maximum productivity.

Betenbender goes the extra mile to build a Press Brake that works hard, works accurately, and stays that way for years to come.

When your name goes on the finished product, so does your reputation. We feel the same way. Compare features. Compare results. You can count on first-class American technology, rugged durability, versatility and economy when it's made by Betenbender Manufacturing, Inc.

Our Standard and Optional features make delivering quality easier.

  • Simple & Flexible Controls: Use either a convenient multi-switch control panel or a 3-position fully guarded foot switch.

  • Accuracy: Every Betenbender machine is thoroughly inspected and tested. Parallelism is maintained between bed and ram, or at a preset angle, by using precise automatic leveling controls. Parallelism is maintained at ±0.002 inch in low speed. The ram bottom reversal point is controlled by precise limit switches referenced off the bed. This isolates housing deflections which can interfere with accuracy. The side situated handwheel sets the bottom limit of the ram stroke. Micrometer adjustment on the control end allows for tilting or paralleling of the ram. A bed referenced control monitors the actual distance between ram and bed, assuring repeatability independent of die wear or end plate deflection.

  • Versatility: Betenbender's Press Brakes have long, full tonnage stroke; adjustable length and selectable speed combinations; adjustable height for short stroke. Two-speed is standard; three-speed with infinitely adjustable low speed is optional. This option prevents sudden whip up of the work during bending operations.

  • Maintenance: Clevis mounted cylinders eliminate cylinder binding reducing the possibility of oil leaks. Pins and bushings do not rotate under load, resulting in much less wear than competitive products.

  • Easy Hydraulic System Maintenance: The manifold assembly saves space and makes it easy to replace many components. The convenient work height makes the job easier.

  • Convenient Settings: Readout reads in increments of 0.001 inch allows recorded settings of closed heights.

  • Standard Components: The control system components, micro switches, clamp-type backgauge, hydraulic fluid and filter cartridges are all standard equipment, making routine maintenance easier.

  • Flexibility: 2-speed ram is electrically controlled. It lets you shift to a lower speed before coming into contact with sheet metal.

  • Control: The ram stops at the point of reference and self-levels on every stroke. Main control cabinet enclosures are mounted on the side frame containing magnetic, non-reversing motor, starter and 110/120v control circuit.

  • Safety and Reliability: The control system operates at 110/120v using a minimum of circuitry. The system operates predominantly with American made electronics and American made motors.

  • Durability: All steel end frames, ram and bed.

  • Electrical Equipment: Meets requirements of NFPA 79. It includes drip proof, continuous duty 45ºC ambient hydraulic pump motor wired for 208-230/460v 3 phase, 60 hertz, others optional.

    Meets the ANSI B11.3 standards.

  • Ram Level: Is accomplished by two hydraulic systems. One for each cylinder, which keeps them parallel. Self-levels at bottom of each stroke even if hydraulic system is out of adjustment.
Proven performance.

Betenbender Press Brakes are engineered to handle your metal forming requirements and have proven their performance in thousands of field installations.

Hydraulic Shears

A precision cut doesn't happen by chance.

It takes a shear that can make a razor-sharp cut time after time. Betenbender overdriven and underdriven Hydraulic Shears are designed to do exactly that. Choose from a family of nine different models:
1/8" (10 GA), 3/16", 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 1" and 1 1/4".

Betenbender designs simplicity and safety into its shears-with an advanced hydraulic system and flexible operation. They're easy to operate, easy to maintain and able to withstand the rigors of today's production demands. A wide range of options are available.

  • Controls: Push button and switch controls are at your fingertips. The fully guarded, 2-position 110v footswitch lets you interrupt the cutting stroke at any point in its cycle.

  • Easy Material Handling: A sturdy backgauge and rake angle adjustment minimizes twist and distortion. This makes it possible to increase the rake for cutting heavier stock and extend maximum capacity of the machine. A 4' squaring arm with a recessed scale makes for fast, easy measurement.

  • Single Piece Top and Bottom, High Carbon, High Chrome Shock Resistant Knives: Provide four separate edges for clean cuts and long blade life. Easy blade gap adjustment means precise cuts for a wide variety of materials.
  • Electrical System: Meets NFPA 79 and construction requirements of the ANSI B11.4. All machines have disconnect switches magnetic starters, 110/120v controls, and 208-230/460v 3 phase, others optional.

  • Backgauges: A Betenbender Shear is capable of shearing 1/8" (10 GA) material to the following tolerance: Dimension - The width of the off-cut portion of the workpiece is within ±0.005 inch of the backgauge setting.
