We bend steel profiles to specified radii, our core competencies include bending complete systems. State-of-the-art bending technology requires extensive knowledge of bending products such as steel profiles .
FOLDED SHEET PROFILES OF 1/4", 5/16", 3/8" and 1/2". length of 6 meters
Bent steel profiles come in a wide variety. Using modern and extensive machines to bend standard construction profiles and customer specific sections. We use methods of bending to bend a wide variety of types and sizes into virtually any desired profile , taking into account specific requirements (tolerance).
How sheet metal works
During the bending process , the upper tool, also called punch, is pressed against the lower tool (die) in a controlled manner. The steel sheet is placed between the two tools and is bent into the required shape, lowering the punch.
The advantage of professional brakes is that the angles and radii can be bent . This is done by simply changing the punch of the folded material. The punch has the precise shape needed for the steel sheet . The sheet can be bent by different amounts, depending on the lowering depth. The material to be folded is positioned against a stop (back gauge) to make the bending process as efficient as possible.
The configuration of all our machines is done by CNC (computer numerical control). This also allows simulation of the planned bending operation. In this way, the insertion depth (stroke depth) can be optimally planned without the need to carry out an experimental bend .
Depending on the profile properties and product application, the profile is bent as per customer request
Radius and radius of curvature
We have two pressure brakes with dimensions 3,500 mm and 6,000 mm. In these press brakes, we can use radius dies to bend high precision inner radii. Radius seals must be used if extremely strong steels , e.g. Hardox, are to be bent . These materials are very hard, but tend to tear if the inner radii are too small.
With our dies and radius seals, we ensure that materials are optimally bent according to their specific properties without losing their stability.
Before a radius can be bent into sheets , the minimum radius of curvature must be known. The minimum bending radii depend on the types of material and sheet thickness. Preset radii are required for many applications. Regardless of whether they are needed for visual or design reasons.
With our radius tools (punches and dies) we can produce inner radii with an accuracy of 0.5 mm. We achieve larger radii through multiple bends or segment bends .
