Default Bending brake not bending crisp edges - why?

I have a 4ft bending brake (a pan brake) that I use to bend panels for my restoration projects. i tis identical to the one pictured but I have mine on a stand.

It is essentially a chinese machine that I purchased some years ago.

It has never really produced sharp crisp bends. they always appear a lot rounder that I need.

I have the clamping blade edge set to about 1 metal thickness behind the bending line.

What can I do to fix that?

Best regards
