To all of our valued members and guests
theArtofPressBrake’s web site suffered a major server crash taking down a triple redundant server system causing us to suffer a 100% loss of material from the web.
We do have the backup files upon which rebuild but it is going to take a little time to return things to normal. Members should still have access to your accounts and the textbook however at this point the graphics are still missing along with quite a few other features.
If you are having trouble logging in to your account please contact Info@theArtofPressBrake.com
Please know that we are trying our very best to get our site operating normally.
Thank you for your patience with this rebuild.

“I think calling this work “The art of press brake” is vastly understated its’ content. It’s so much more than simply a forming tutorial as it covers almost all aspects of metal fabrication. I like the balance of text, pictures, charts, and videos throughout the modules. I’m an old-school textbook kind of guy but I know that your electronic format with the hyperlinks will appeal to the younger employees and that’s who I foresee using this program. I think that you have a great product that when purchased would give a company and instant, comprehensive training program where none previously existed. Also, It could be used to fill in the gaps with existing programs. This is where I see its application at Greenheck Fan. As you know, we have extensive Weld, Laser, Punch, and Press Brake training programs that start out with the basics but quickly advance into machine and product-specific techniques and skills. Where we do have gaps is in our tertiary fabrication operations such as rolling, shearing, and notching. These areas are trained “word of mouth” by existing operators only, with no formal knowledge themselves. My feeling is that we will want to purchase it to round out our current curriculum.” Marty J. Bever Technical Trainer Greenheck Fan Corporation
“When we hired a new crew to run our press brake operations, we quickly learned there was a need to have everyone trained in the same fashion. The Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, Intl (FMA) sent industry expert Steve Benson to our plant who made our goals the focus of his instruction. Since then, we have tracked our employee’s progress and have documented a reduction in scrap metal by well over half!”
