Press Braking

Folded steel channels, angles and pressed sections up to 12.5 metres long

  • Our presses have cnc control that is set to compensate for the very high strength of steels such as Armox meaning that we can offer unrivalled accuracy and repeatability.

  • Thick pressings in duplex for an offshore blast wall. First cut with inert gas plasma to give a bright edge for welding and subsequently accurately pressed demonstrating industry leading repeatability.

  • The presses can be used in tandem to bend very long pieces of steel up to 12.5 metres in length with great accuracy. They also are extremely powerful and can bend material 20mm thick over the same length, no other machine in the UK can do this. When not in tandem the two presses can be used individually both speeding things up and keeping costs down.

  • Our press brakes are both the biggest and best in the United Kingdom and can adjust, through the cnc control, at 6 points along the fold. This allows us to offer unrivalled repeatability over a number of folds.

  • These cones were pressed from 25mm thick S690QL plate and were destined for a gas plant in Siberia. It was important to make sure that both diameters matched to enable tacking together.

  • These large parts had holes drilled prior to bending and were to match up with existing fixings. It was very important that the bending was both accurate and consistently so  to avoid re-work on site.

Our press brakes are the biggest and most accurate in the country.

With a total of 1300 tonnes of force available over 12.5 metres we can fold 20mm thick plate over the full length.

Our machines are the only big machines in the UK with the latest sectional tooling. This facilitates the cost effective replacement of damaged tooling and by keeping our tooling in perfect condition witness marking and contamination is kept to a minimum. This makes us the ideal choice for bending aluminium and stainless steel.

Computers calculate the specific force required to bend the work-piece, dependent on the grade of material or actual tensile strength and even material that is prone to a large degree of spring-back, such as Hardox can be bent accurately.

Any variation in thickness of material will cause over or under bending at different points down the length. Our machines can adjust the bend at 6 points down the length of machine to compensate this.
