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.
