An efficient press brake is fundamental to avoiding damages and detecting failures. Keeping press brake clean and tidy is simple but important. It should be done the daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly.

Why does press brake leak oil?

The sealing ring is not suitable for the conditions of using press brake. The O-shaped rubber seals often used in press brake must be selected according to the operating conditions and working conditions. Under oil lubrication conditions, the hardness of the oil-resistant rubber O-ring seal can be low hardness when the oil pressure is less than 2.9MPa. When the oil pressure is 2.9 to 4.9MPa, medium hardness should be selected. When the oil pressure is 4.9 to 7.8MPa, select high hardness.

There is no design seal or unreasonable seal structure. The screw hole on the body of the press brake is designed as a through hole with no sealing measure. The press brake cover is not designed with a gasket. The clearance between the shaft and the body hole is too large. The interference between the sealing ring and the shaft does not meet the requirements. The design of sealing groove is unreasonable.

Oil leakage can be caused by casting defects and parts damage. The castings of the press brake have defects such as blisters, pores, cracks, and loose tissues. When the oil pipes and pipe joints of the press brake are made of plastic or oil-resistant rubber, the materials will age to become hard and brittle after long-term use. The moving parts will lose the sealing performance due to friction and wear. If the gap between the shaft and the shaft hole increases, it will also cause oil leakage.

What should you do for oil of press brake?

Before maintaining or cleaning, the upper mold should be aligned with the lower mold. Shut down until the work is completed. If you need to start press brake, select the manual mode to ensure safety.

Check the oil level of the oil tank every week, even after the hydraulic system is repaired. If the oil level is lower, add hydraulic oil. The oil should be changed after 2000 hours of operating new press brake. Afterwards, the oil should be changed after 4000 to 6000 hours of operating press brake. The oil tank should be cleaned every time before changing the oil. The oil temperature of the press brake should be between 35℃ and 60℃ that is not exceed 70℃. Otherwise, it will cause deterioration and damage of the oil quality and accessories.

The filter of press brake should be replaced or thoroughly cleaned every time if the oil is changed. If the press brake has filter abnormalities such as unclean oil, the filter should be replaced. The air filter on the fuel tank should be inspected and cleaned every 3 months and replace every year.

After using the new press brake for one month, check whether the bending of each oil pipe is deformed. After two months of use, all fittings should be tightened.

What is the role of oil of press brake?

The oil of the press brake plays the role of transmission, wear resistance, system lubrication, anti-corrosion, rust prevention, and cooling in the hydraulic system. It belongs to the industrial hydraulic system. The hydraulic oil itself is constantly changing in use. However, it is difficult to completely solve the problem of hydraulic oil pollution.

Serious oil pollution will directly affect the performance of the press brake. It will cause frequent failures of the brake system and shorten the lifespan of press brake.

The main reason is the particles in the dust. As far as hydraulic components are concerned, these solid particles entering the components will increase the wear of the sliding parts. In addition, it may block the orifice, the orifice in the hydraulic component, or the spool stuck, causing the hydraulic system to malfunction.

The mixing of water and air reduces the lubrication of hydraulic oil, accelerating the oxidation of hydraulic oil and producing cavitation corrosion.
