Sheet Metal Bending Service

Press Braking Services

In addition to our Laser cutting services, we are also able to offer the folding of components using our “best of breed” Amada Press brakes.

With three CNC controlled machines, achieving a maximum of 220 tonnes capacity over a 4 metre bend length, we are able to ensure part repeatability and accuracy for anything from low quantity prototypes, to high volume batches. With the use of the very latest ‘Bend Cam’ software, specifically designed to work in conjunction with our Amada press brake machines, we are able to develop each individual fold; creating a proven flat blank prior to flatbed Laser cutting.

This software also provides details on the machine capabilities and constraints, allowing us to quickly identify any areas which may collide with the machine, aswell as calculating the most efficient bend sequence for components with multiple folds..

All our Press Brake machines share the same tooling, allowing processing of one high volume part on multiple machines; ensuring we can work to even the tightest of deadlines. Tooling not stocked, is generally available on a next day basis from our approved supplier. Our ever expanding range of Press Brake tooling means we can continually increase our abilities and experience to form components others cannot.

Experience That Matters

Our highly experienced team of operators, with many years experience in this sector, periodically look to check parts being processed to maintain a high level of repeatability through use of accurate, regularly calibrated measuring equipment. Ensuring customer requirements are always met.

Material for folding can either be supplied to us on a free issue basis, or we can utilise our Laser cutting department to produce flat blanks. To ensure problem areas, suseptable to distortion are avoided, we are able to utilise our Five axis Laser cutting department to add these details after completion of folding works.

For specialised requirements where tooling may not be available off the shelf, we are able to utilise our in house machining department to either precisely modify stocked tooling, or create custom sections from scratch.

Press Braking Services Why Press Brake?

Press brakes are a faster and cheaper method of production than traditional press tools and as such lend themselves well to fast prototype production, as well as ongoing batch production.

Reduced setup times in comparison make Press brakes a viable alternative over conventional presses for small quantities of multiple different parts/
