When starting out with your new Piranha Press Brake, there’s a limited amount of data in the material library in your Delem DA 6060 controller. There’s an easy way to add any material to the database. All you need is a material cert provided from your source that lists the tensile strength of the material you’re using.

  1. Go to settings and access the tab labelled “Materials.”
  2. Scroll down to find an empty line.
  3. Plug in the name of your new material.
  4. Enter the tensile strength of the new material in tons per square inch.
  5. The controller will calculate the other two values, “E” and “n” automatically.

Your new material is now stored in the controller’s material library. Any time you select a material for a new job, you’ll see your new material in the drop-down menu. You can select it and the press brake will automatically use those values to give you a more precise bend.
