Brake forming is used to create straight bends in sheet metal for a variety of applications. Our shop uses two press brakes for sheet metal forming operations. Our 150 ton press brake can handle sheet metals up to 12 feet long and plate thicknesses up to ½ inch thick. Our 30 ton press brake can handle sheet metals up to 6’ long and plate thicknesses up to 10 gauge (~1/8"). We use brake forming primarily for straight 90 degree bends. However, acute and obtuse angles in various curves and shapes are possible as well.
