What is a Press Brake?
A press brake machine is used for bending sheet metal. The press brake forms predetermined bends by lowering a punch onto sheet metal that has been positioned on top of a die.
Modern Press Brake fabrication saves time and overall cost because of its relatively low setup times and computerized functionality that minimizes wastage and supports high repeatability and traceability. Bending a single sheet of metal into shape is usually preferable to welding two or more pieces together. Welding can be time consuming, and the structural integrity of the end-product may be inferior to that of a single bent piece of metal.
What types of materials?
- Stainless steel
- Perforated sheet
