A press brake, also known as a brake press, is a machine tool for bending/folding sheet and plate material. It is most common in sheet metal. The machine forms predetermined bends by clamping the work piece between a matching punch and die.
Our 80 tonne 2.5 meter Amada press brake is a multi-axis machine which gives us greater accuracy and control over the components that we need to press.
The machine excels in folding intricate large and small quantity batches of thinner materials up to 6mm thick.
The CNC controller allows us to calculate the undeveloped flat shape size before we commit to cutting parts, to ensure that set up and test folds are kept to a minimum.
This is our second press brake, we also have a 3 meter 100 tonne alongside this one.
From fine aluminium sheet to thick steel plate, our press brake machines have what it takes to fold metal quickly and accurately
It is not just high volume work we cater for; we regularly do smaller batch size runs and one-off items. The type of things we have developed and made for our customers range from simple brackets, channels, trays, steel ducts, extraction hoods, electrical boxes, stainless steel cones and aluminium louvered boxes.
Examples of our Press brake products.
A stainless steel oven cone used in the automotive industry. The cone carries abrasive polymer granules that we reverse engineered to enable us to manufacture a new one.
Bespoke Steel ducts made for a customers extraction table
These aluminium motor housing boxes, prior to welding. These housing boxes, house 2kw motors.
