Bending and Press Brake Services

Bending and Press Brake Services

Profelez offers metal bending and press brake services to accommodate up to .500” sheet metal thickness and deliver custom bending solutions to meet your exact requirements.

At Profelez, we provide bending and press brake services for metal sheet and plate products to different shapes including U-shaped, V-shaped, and channel-shaped parts and assemblies in different degrees.

A Press brake is a manufacturing machine, which is utilized for metal bending services and fabricating. Our machines are typically long and narrow so that they can bend large pieces of sheet metal. This system bends panels by lowering a punch onto the material that is placed on top of the die. We bend the metal several times by our machines until your desired form is achieved.

Profelez Bending and Press Brake Services Process

At Profelez, we use bending press brake machines that can create a variety of shapes on many different materials. We consider many factors before starting the bending and press brake services process. These factors include metal type, the punch, the die, and the bending force. The metal type is important to be defined due to the difference in physical properties among the materials. For example, high carbon steel is harder to bend and press brake in comparison to aluminum alloys due to their differences in ductility and strength. Metals often have recommended minimum bend radius, which we consider for preventing the material from having any potential damages during the procedure. The die and punch that are utilized on the machine also have a considerable impact on the process. The die has a shape similar to the desired product of the metal being bent. The punch is often a solid metal that is lowered down onto the panel. We place and suit both punch and die accurately in order to provide the best results for our customers. We define the providing amount force of our press brake with a parameter called tonnage.

Our state of art machines allow us to bend length of 4000mm.

Combined with our laser cutter, shearing machine and Ironworker, in Profelez we are able to design and manufacture high-quality custom parts and components to meet the very precise requirements and tolerance of our clients.

Materials for bending and press brake services could be carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, Hardox wear plate, high strength steels including Strenx (Domex), brass, bronze, copper and titanium. These materials are relatively ductile and this characteristic ensures that they bend before breaking. Ductility allows them to be formed into certain sizes and shapes.

Laser Cutting Services

Laser Cutting Services

Profelez is your best choice for precision metal laser cutting. Our laser cutting services are an essential part of our full-service metal fabrication service.

Laser, which is an acronym for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation, is utilized for many purposes in industry. On mild steel, aluminum plate, and stainless steel, laser cutting services are highly accurate, yield perfect cut quality, and have a small heat affect zone and kerf width. This ability allow us to cut small holes or intricate shapes for our customers.

How do the Laser Cutting services Work?

The laser is a beam of high intensity light that has single wavelength or color. In a typical CO2 laser, the wavelength is in the infrared part of the spectrum, thus it is invisible to our eyes. The diameter of the beam is about ¾ of an inch as it travels from the resonator. The resonator creates the light through the machine’s laser path. The focused beam goes through the tunnel of the nuzzle before hitting the sheet metal.

Constant wavelengths are focused by a special lens or by a curved mirror. This happens in the laser cutting services device’s head. The beam is precisely compressed and focused so that the shape of the targeted spot and density of the energy are perfectly consistent and round. By focusing the laser beam to a single point, we increase the heat density at the spot. When we begin the laser cutting services, the heat of the laser beam is enough to start an oxy-fuel burning. However, for aluminum and stainless steel, the beam only melts the material.

Laser Cutting Services with CNC Machines

On our CNC laser cutting services machines, for cutting your demanded shapes and patterns out of the plate, our machine’s head is moved on the working plate and creates your new product. The machine has a capacitive height control system that maintains an accurate distance between the plate and the end of the nuzzle. Precision in having this distance is very important in laser cutting services since it determines the exact place of the focal point which is relative to the surface of the material. Laser Cutting quality can be affected by lowering or raising the focal point.

Many other factors and parameters can increase or reduce the quality of metal laser cutting services. Profelez controls all the parameters properly and offers a reliable, stable, and extremely accurate laser cutting process.

Our customers are traditionally in the Construction, Machinery, Aerospace, Automotive, Computer, Defense, Electronics, Marine, Medical, Space, and Trucking Industries.
