Sheet Metal & Steel Plate Bending With A Press Brake
Thompson Metals and Tubing offers a sheet metal bending service using our press brake. We have a 250 ton 12 foot hydraulic press brake. For more information please call.
Sheet Metal Bending & Press Brake Basics
The manufacturing process of bending deforms the sheet metal using the plasticity of the material to change its shape. The metal or steel is stressed beyond its yield strength but below its ultimate tensile strength. To bend the sheet metal it is placed on a die and held in place using a stop. Then the upper part of the press brake, or ram, using a shaped punch descends and forms the metal in to a bend.
