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 that what is currently offered with the SWAG standard or heavy duty press brake kits.
The bottom steel plate has 4 threaded 5/16" holes and is laser cut out of 1/2" thick steel which sits upon the bottom die of the SWAG 20 ton press brake kits. The total usable bending width between the four fasteners is 19.25". The "Flat Top" is a self contained unit and can be removed or slid into position with in a few seconds.
Due to the custom nature of this product and the infinitely adjustable options It's bending capabilities are not easily defined. Please note that the 20 Ton Flat Top will work with your 40" and 50" brake but still only has a total usable width of 19.25".
Note: If you are not able to bend 90 degrees in, say, 3/16" material due to the top die contacting the bottom 1/2" 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.

Works very well on sheet metal, but would not use on anything over 1/8". Only thing to be aware of is that the depth stop on the brake will not work with the flat top. I will make up some spacers and longer bolts to use it.
I could barely make the same item at the cost and the quality is most good
Simple, affordable, and effective
great products Best of class in communication.
Definitely allows you to make tighter bends with a shorter toe on the other side.
