Our sheet metal forming department is dedicated to the bending and shaping of parts to customer specifications. There is no adding or removing of material in this process; the part is shaped through bending. Our group of press brake machines can handle heavy loads and can apply the great amount of pressure needed to successfully shape metal.

Know Your Metal Forming

Plastic deformation does not mean that the material being shaped is made of plastic. The term comes from the comparison of plastic versus elastic. Elastic deformation occurs when the shape of something is changed through force, but the material is able to return to its previous shape. Think of stretching out a rubber band: let it go and it will bounce back.

Plastic deformation occurs when the material cannot return to its original shape; the process is irreversible. Every material has a unique “yield strength,” which is the amount of pressure it can take and still keep or return to its original shape. In metal forming, the amount of pressure exerted from the press brake must exceed the yield strength of the material in order for the part to keep the desired shape.

Ties to Mission Critical Manufacturing

For many of our clients, time is of the essence. That’s why we work tirelessly to get the job done with both speed and accuracy. A single press brake machine can form multiple parts at a time. We have 19 various press brake machines with multiple capabilities, therefore we are able to meet your deadlines in production.

One of Our Star Machines

Press Brakes - Amada HDS 1303

Amada HDS 1303 NT

HDS stands for Hybrid Drive System, which allows this machine to bend metal with precision, and repeat the process exactly multiple times for larger quantities. The HDS also means the machine consumes less energy and requires less maintenance than a hydraulic press.
