The working principle of the busbar bending machine

The bending mold is fixed on the bending workbench of the busbar bending machine, and the hydraulic system is used to drive the bending mold and move relative to another fixed bending mold to achieve the bending and forming of the busbar.

  1. Preparation for processing:

    Before processing, a suitable mold needs to be selected according to the design requirements and installed on the machine. At the same time, it is necessary to adjust the knife edge spacing and knife edge height, and check whether the lubricating oil path is smooth.

  2. Processing
    • Positioning: Place the busbar material to be processed on the machine workbench and fix it on the mold through a cylinder or hydraulic cylinder.
    • Bending: The bending action is completed by driving the knife edge through a hydraulic cylinder or air cylinder. According to different bending requirements, multiple bending operations are required.
    • Removing material: After completing all bending operations, remove the processed busbar material from the mold through a hydraulic cylinder or air cylinder.
  3. Processing accuracy control:
    In order to ensure processing accuracy and processing quality, the machine needs to be debugged and calibrated. It mainly includes the following aspects:
    • Knife edge spacing adjustment: Select the appropriate knife edge spacing according to different busbar materials and different molds to ensure processing accuracy.
    • Knife edge height adjustment: Select the appropriate knife edge height according to different busbar materials and different molds to ensure processing accuracy.
    • Lubrication system adjustment: Ensure that the lubrication system is smooth and the machine operates stably for a long time.
