The hydro/mechanical press brakes use bronze(not brass like i said above) bushings on the pins that carry the load. You just have to use the correct grade. The guides shouldn't have a lot of force on them. I am guessing your machines have liner guides. Now the size of those guides i am not 100% sure of yet. Been searching around to find sizes used on different machines.
