Benefits of Using a CNC Press Brake

Press brakes are essential pieces of equipment, helping fabricators to create formed components like brackets, channels, enclosures, ductwork, and other custom shapes. CNC press brakes offer:

  • Greater automation
  • Increased efficiency and productivity
  • Less material waste
  • Complex and accurate forming

How Does a CNC Press Brake Work?

A CNC (computer numerical controlled) press brake is an automated piece of machinery designed to bend, fold and shape sheet metal into a multitude of profiles and designs. As with CNC Laser Cutting, information is entered into a computer containing precise details about the part you want to make, including lengths, angles and other measurements. Following these instructions, the metal sheet is forced into shape between one fixed element (called a die) and another piece applying the pressure. There are a number of tools available for both the fixed and moving elements, to help achieve the desired result.

Our highly skilled press brake operators take account of the design, material and any springback to ensure the quality and consistency of your components. At ASA, we have a wealth of experience giving you the confidence that your folded parts will be right first time, every time.

Our Press Brake Machines

Our state-of-the-art equipment offers quality, repeatable bending and folding to your specific requirements. We use the following press brake machines at our facility in Stoke-on-Trent:

  • Amada HFE3i – 2m, 50 ton
  • Amada HFE – 3m, 100 ton

We also have a huge range of press brake dies and tools to choose from. If your job requires something different, let us know and we can either order a new tool or create one ourselves.

Expanding the range of what CAD software can achieve, our SheetWorks software integrates Amada sheet-metal and bending knowledge into a powerful SolidWorks environment to easily create 3D parts and empower the sheet-metal modelling features.

What You Can Expect from ASA Fabs
