This Flat Top is exactly like the other we offer, just ~2" narrower. A majority of our international customers have hydraulic presses that are 20.5" wide between the inside frame rails, hence this 20.5" wide version.
This simple concept allows you to easily adjust the gap between the bottom V die, by loosening two 5/16" bolts and siding the 3/8" thick laser cut plates in or out. This will allow for tighter bends on thinner materials and/or allow you to bend much shorter pieces of material than what is currently offered with the SWAG standard or heavy duty press brake kits.
The bottom steel plate has 4 threaded 1/2" holes and is laser cut out of 5/8" thick steel which sits upon the bottom die of the SWAG 20.5" wide press brake kit. The total usable bending width between the four fasteners is 17". The "Flat Top" is a self contained unit and can be removed or slid into position with in a few seconds.
Please note: The pictures shown above with the Harbor Freight Press are for example only, We do not have an imported 20.5" wide press at this time.
Due to the custom nature of this product and the infinitely adjustable options It's bending capabilities are not easily defined.
Note: If you are not able to bend 90 degrees in, say, 3/16" material due to the top die contacting the bottom 5/8" thick steel surface, you can shim up the two adjustable plates with ~1/8" flat bar to increase the distance the top die can travel before contacting the 5/8" thick steel surface.
The "Flat Top" adjustable bottom V die makes a great addition to the arbor press plates we sell HERE.
