Abstract—A small hydraulic press for V-bending operation is designed, manufactured and modeled. The hydraulic bending press consists of hydraulic circuit, punch, die and PLC control unit. Automation studio and SimHydraulic in Matlab/Simulink library are used to model the hydraulic circuit. Using PLC program, the bending operation is controlled. The press had to be capable of withstanding 2 tons of force. The punch and dies are designed to be rigidly fixed and easily removable, changeable to any kind of forming operation with decreasing of spring back effect of the sheet metal.
Index Terms—Hydraulic circuit, Bending press, SimHydraulic, Spring-back, PLC
