Polyurethane Pads for Metal Forming

Urethane V-Pads

Urethane V-Pads are the most economical and easy to use method of making mar-free bends in pre-polished stainless steel, aluminum and pre-finished surfaces (painted, vinyl coated). 

Perfect, straight bends are possible even on older press brakes with the bed being wavey or not perfectly parallel, just by placing a V-pad in the steel V-Die. As long as the punch is straight, a perfect straight bend is formed every time. With the V-Pads, there is no need for shimming or expensive Adustable Die Holders.

  • Triangular shaped urethane pads in different sizes just drop into corresponding size steel V-Dies.
  • As long as the punch is straight, you make a perfect straight bend every time.
  • V-Pads are available in sizes to fit standard Steel V-Dies with openings: 1/2”, 1”, 1-1/2” & 2”.
  • Standard Lengths: Up to 8Ft. For longer bends, butt pads end to end, with no gap.
Ideal for bending Aluminum Diamond Plates or Checkered Plates, without smashing the diamond shapes. Radius bends of up to 1/2”R in 10Ga. Aluminum diamond plates.

For short flanges that do not span the full width of the v-opening of a steel V-Die, inserting a V-Pad in the V-Die fills the gap & enable bending flanges as short as 2-3 times metal thickness.
