Sheet metal CNC bending facility in Fareham, Hampshire, UK
Here’s a range of larger sheet metal items being bent with our Edwards Pearson PR6 2.5M CNC press brakes. The parts in the front of the picture are 0.9mm thick Zintec coated mild steel pump bases and have been laser cut without the need for any edge de-burring. The parts on the left hand side and at the machine itself are 0.7mm thick pre-painted mild steel light fitting housings and the longer parts on the right hand side are 0.7mm thick pre-painted mild steel light fitting gear trays. both of the pre-painted parts were CNC punched out with the longer gear trays also having plunged form for self tapping screws to fit into. This range of sheet metal work is typical of the types of parts that are bent up every day of the week. The PR6 CNC press brakes have 6 axis computer control of the bend tooling and the back stops so they can handle very complex cross sections when needed or simple parts up to 2.5M long.
Sheet metal working bending service
Although the Edwards Pearson 2.5M CNC press brakes can fold small items we tend to put them our Trumpf 7036 machines if possible. These machines are electric rather than hydraulic which means they are very quiet, fast and cheaper to run. They have the ability to save CNC bending programs direct to the company wide computer network so that they jobs can be run on either machine or both together if needed to provide a useful flexibility to production when we are busy. The Trumpf 7036 press brakes are also very accurate which helps us to offer a comprehensive sheet metal bending service to all our customers.
Bending sheet metal chassis panels
Here’s our other Trumpf 7036 bending machine with 0.9mm zintec pump trays chassis panels being folded. These parts were run in a batch of 150 off which is perfect for this machine with samples and small batches up to jobs with many thousands of bends often being worked on throughout the week.
