(No reviews yet) Write a Review


The KHP 40 NC bending and straightening press series is equipped with a punch and a die with a height of 160 mm (6.3 in). Thin sheet metal strips and thicker flat steel can be processed particularly easily. The pressing force is adjustable, and a pressure gauge shows the current bending pressure. The depth stop is set using the touchscreen display. Operation is via a safety foot switch. This machine is also interesting for users who do not want to retool their press brake or who do not want to load it with short pieces.


  • The horizontal bending and straightening press features a powerful hydraulic drive plus a stamp and a die for machining up to 6.3" wide flat material
  • The large, very rigid support table provides superior structural strength
  • Long, supporting, hardened bending die guideways with central lubrication system
  • The large mount for the bending v-block is anchored to the table for maximum rigidity
  • An adjustable side stop simplifies workpiece positioning
  • The powerful hydraulic system can be regulated via pressure and flow valves, allowing the user to control the pressing force according to requirements
