When we are looking at folding sheet metal housings we first have to produce an accurate blank. Accuracy and consistency is what we are looking for. Whether we go down the route of CNC punching or CNC laser cutting the blanks need to be programmed correctly. These blanks are all programmed using our Radan CAD/CAM software.
Connecting 3D software models to developed blanks enables for quick calculations. When run in conjunction with fast setting CNC press brakes test pieces can easily be run. When needed we can then hop onto the laser machine with a test program, run a couple of parts and fold it up in minutes. This then helps to fine tune the production program and improve the process of folding up the sheet metal work.

When we are folding sheet metal housings we have a range of CNC press brakes to call upon. Housings and brackets up to 1M long may well be folded on our Trumpf 7036 CNC press brakes. Larger work can go on our Safan e-Brake 3M CNC press brake. Profiles for the heating, lighting, electronics, audio and display industries are regularly folded. With batch sizes from just a few parts to many thousands regularly produced with no issues.

Folding sheet metal housings whether it’s in aluminium, stainless steel or Zintec its not an issue when you have the right machines and tooling. The flexibility to go from job to job on the same folding machine and the same tooling just changing the program is great news for us. Offering up these machines as a sub-contract manufacturing service means we have to be nimble in running a large variety of jobs every day. One minute we will be folding sheet metal housings then its stainless steel support brackets or copper electrical connectors. You name it and we have folded it.
