Start With The Best Foundation Possible ... And Build From There

Too many manufacturers today base their machine's productivity on computerized technology rather than the quality of the brake itself. We here at standard Industrial start with a solid well-designed 100% U.S. made machine and then add the merits of CNC capability to provide you with the best machine on the market today. We are one of the top suppliers of the U.S. made Automec backgauges. We also offer from a base machine up to 6 axis CNC control including X, Y, R, X1 & X2 and Z1 & Z2. Add to this tooling and accessories from such fine manufacturers like R-K Brake Dies and Wila and their is no doubt that you have the best brake the U.S. has to offer.


  • Best built, heaviest brake on the market
  • Least amount of deflection on any brake available
  • All parts covered for 5 years and afterwards a lifetime supply of available parts from local vendors
  • All press brakes available from base models up to 6 axis CNC control including X, Y, R, X1 & X2 and Z1 & Z2.


With full tonnage throughout the stroke and more importantly throughout the entire length of the bed and ram the Standard Industrial brake has a repeatability advantage over most dual cylinder brakes. Direct dual cylinder brakes require complicated hydraulic and electrical systems to balance their tonnage and they require a vast amount of labor and parts as the machines age. Typically the customer is forced to pay exorbitant prices for the parts and labor that they can only get from the manufacturer. We at Standard pride ourselves on the fact that customers can get parts for their brake from local suppliers and the simplicity of the equipment requires only the most basic trouble shooting.

The hydraulic/mechanical system used by Standard is certainly a superior concept as evident by the number of manufacturers currently offering similar products. However, we have more experience in years and thousands of products designed and manufactured than any in the business. Our design experience is reflected in our size and type of bearings and shafts as well as our technical capability to design a bellcrank system that does not have excessive side loads. All forces are vertical above the ram centerline and are contained in the "box" structure that houses the drive system and ram guides.

The ram of the press brake is guided by heavy duty slides as used in straight side presses. These slides are located both front and back of each end of the ram and are clearly superior to the small rear mounted guides found on other press brakes.


All press brakes require guides to contain end movement of the ram. Other manufacturers use tiny segmented guides incorporated in the main ram guides. The Standard design is to provide a heavy duty, self aligning system at the rear center of the ram and located inside the press frame. This system requires no operator action when the ram level is adjusted.
