Front sheet lifters

The sheet lifter is an effective bending aid for press brakes. It basically consists of a pair of sheet supports placed on the front of the machine at the height of the bending line (lower tool). Sheet lifters, also called sheet followers, are controlled by the CNC, following and supporting the sheet during the bending process. Sheet lifters can be installed also in the inner part of the machine with RPG backgauges.
