With the Brake Press Manipulator, the press brake operator does not have to press up/down pushbuttons to move the arm vertically; the arm floats up down in response to the operator's movements. While the sheet is bent in the press brake, the manipulator arm maintains its grip and continues to "float" the sheet at all times.
The sheet angle tilt is passive while the bending occurs, but becomes active outside of the press, responding to the press brake operator's tilt up/down pushbuttons, using our patented system. The sheet can be rotated 180 degrees upside down without letting go. The handlebars can be slid up down a rail so that a comfortable height can be maintained
