Hydraulic Operations

The more modern machines are Hydraulically Operated. Yes we are knowledgeable on them as well. Most of the hydraulics may be obsolete and require updates to achieve off the shelf replacement parts. When troubleshooting the hydraulic operated press brakes
RAKO Inc prefers two skilled technicians, one electrical and the other mechanical. In some cases problematic activities can appear to be inverted – a mechanical binding, lube failure, slide way gaulding, can appear to be electrical / hydraulical in nature. Having TWO highly skilled – Experienced Technicians can isolate the problematic area quickly.

Quality Of Bends

Over time the TOP RAM and possibly the BED tends to lose its “CROWN”. With excessive Crown loss, poor quality bends are the result. TWO options may come to mind. Replace the missing crown with (build Up) weld and re-establish the crown OR have a Specialty company re-mill the bed area. Call us for more details. 316 – 214 – 8100.
