Trumpf 7036 CNC press brake folding aluminium sheet metal fabrications
Aluminium sheet metal fabrications can come in many shapes, thickness and sizes. We have been producing sheet metal work for over 30 years and have seen most everything that people want producing. From small volume tiny electrical components right up to fully welded aluminium sheet metal fabrications. 19” rack mounted components, support angles and lots for the UK lighting industry.
Using both CNC punching and laser cutting to produce blanks and then onto CNC bending to fold up brackets, trays, boxes, long profiles etc.
Aluminium sheet metal blanks
Producing an accurate sheet metal blank is crucial if we are to fold up a correct component. This accuracy comes from using Radan CAD/CAM sheet metal software. This is the starting point for all our CNC punching and laser cutting activities. It enables us to communicate with our customers taking their designs and feeding back changes in a most efficient way. The ability to produce the correct blank size, edge profile and corner notch conditions leads to folded sheet metal work with consistent sizes and joints.

Consistency when folding aluminium sheet metal fabrications is essential. The ability to write a CNC program using standard tooling to fold up a part is one thing. To be able to repeat the cycle again and again without interruption is important. To be able to do that months apart and on different machines in a very powerful technique. Having 3 Trumpf 7036 CNC press brakes all reading the same programs and using the same tooling is essential to achieving this consistency.
