Poly Die Pads

Polyurethane Die Pads

Polyurethane Die Pads for metal forming come in two type of configurations that can create 90 or 180 degree bends in 1 hit:

  • POD - Designed for sharp or radiused V-Bends.
  • PUD - Used for making 180 degree U-Bends in one hit.

PODs for Radius V-Bends

PODs are square or rectangular shaped pads with a flat top designed for bending sharp or radius shaped V-Bends.

  • Sized to fit in standard steel channels that function as holders or retainers with mountable American, European, or Trumpf tangs to fit any Press Brake.
  • A molded hole through the full length of the pad reduces the tonnage required & provides stress relief.
  • Pads are available in lengths up to 48". For longer bends, pieces can be butt end to end in a longer retainer.
  • Punch length must be equal to or longer than the pad length, so that the punch ends do not dig into the forming pad.

PUDs for Radius U-Bends

PUDs are square or Rectangular shaped Pads with a molded U-shape on the top surface, for bending 180 degree U-Bends in 1 hit.

  • The designated radius on the pad will produce the desired radius on the outside of the part being bent.
  • The Punch radius must be at least 1 material thickness smaller than the Pad radius, so that when the sheet metal springs back, it will end up with the desired outside radius on the part.
  • Sized to fit in standard steel channels that function as holders or retainers with mountable American, European, or Trumpf tangs to fit any Press Brake.
  • A molded hole through the full length of the pad reduces the tonnage required & provides stress relief.
  • Pads are available in lengths up to 48". For longer bends, pieces can be butt end to end in a longer retainer
  • Punch length must be equal to or longer than the pad length, so that the punch ends do not dig into the forming pad.
