ABOUT OUR METAL BENDING, FOLDING AND FORMING SERVICES
We have a highly skilled team of machine operators managing this work centre, which includes press brakes, forming and section/plate rolling machines, consisting of:
Bystronic Xpert 3 metre x 100 ton 8 axis CNC press brake
Edward Pearson 3 metre x 100 ton 6 axis CNC press brake
2qty CNC 3-Pin Section Rolling Machines; including a Prosaw AKYAPAK ASM 140-12/5 Plate Rolling Machine capable of rolling 10mm carbon steel and 6mm stainless steel up to 900mm wide
Baileigh R-H85 section rolling machine capable of rolling a range of square and round hollow sections, as well as angles.
Ercolina CNC Tube Roller with a large library of tooling and dies
We boast of a highly extensive tool library in addition to our folding and forming machines. This includes both air-bend and bottoming dies which allow us to create complex bends such as corrugations, roll beads, crush folds and the standard 90° fold.
Pressbrakes, Rolling Machines & Metal Forming Processes
Our press brakes are capable of folding 3mm mild steel at a 90° angle across a 3-metre length. With the Bystronic Xpert you can trust that with our metal bending services, the machine will not produce angle errors and will produce a perfect bend every time. Both machines in our factory are fully CNC, which additionally gives us the ability to check angles down to 0.5° accuracy. We have extremely high capabilities when it comes to metal forming processes.
Our rolling machines give us the flexibility to roll a variety of thicknesses and diameters to meet your specifications. We can roll tubes up to 102mm O/D with a 3mm wall, box section that is 70x70mm with a 4mm wall and an 86x86x6mm angle. This precision is achieved by a mix of top-grade equipment and a well trained, skilled team.
