Frequently Asked Questions

Sheet metal folding, also known as metal bending, is a step in the metal fabrication process, whereby pressure is applied to a sheet of metal to bend it into its intended form. This is often a ‘V’ or ‘U’ shape.

A press brake is a machine tool designed to bend or fold sheet metal and plate material into the desired form. It forms the predetermined shape through applied pressure by clamping the item between a matching punch and die.

Typically, the press brake has two C-frame sides, with a bottom tool mounted to a table below and the top tool mounted on a moveable beam above.

Once the sheet metal is placed on top of the die, the press brake folds it by lowering a punch or several punches onto it. This process squashes and bends the metal until it is in the right shape.

A press brake can bend metal for a wide range of applications, including airframes, automotive panels, architectural features, machinery and metal containers. Therefore, it is used for projects of all sizes across various industries, from construction, manufacturing and defence to mining, energy and gas.

If you would like to confirm whether press brake services are suitable for your needs, please get in touch with our experts today for personalised guidance.

The time it takes to fold or bend metal depends on the press brake’s speed and force, as well as the specific material’s properties, size and thickness.
