Sheet Metal Folding

Fast, accurate sheet metal folding for truly customisable metal.

Premier sheet metal folding services
that offer unrivalled precision and
speed — and with impressively short
lead times

Our expert team have decades’ worth of experience with sheet metal folding. Following recent investments in the latest press brake technologies we are capable of taking 3D models, which are programmed off line and then transferred over to the machine making the whole process of quoting and producing parts as efficient as possible. We are based in Derbyshire, but our services are available nationwide.

Sheet metal parts can be formed using press brakes in many ways. Over the years, through investment in tooling we now have the capabilities to form a vast array of shapes in order to meet customers requirements.

Our maximum capacity on terms of product width is 3m which by enlarge is sufficient to meet all of our customers needs.
Our quality systems are implemented on all projects that we take on regardless of the batch size and our experienced engineers are more than capable of reading all technical drawings that customers provide ourselves.

Off-line programming allows us to produce concept/prototype efficiently and quickly, which helps build working relationships with our customers.

First off article inspection reports can be provided with all batch produced parts and we are also pro-active in offering manufacturing solutions to reduce costs for our customers.

  • Two 100-tonne x 3000mm NC controlled press brakes
  • Two 50-tonne x 2500mm NC controlled press brakes
  • One 35-tonne x 1250mm NC controlled press brake model

In addition, are able to offer solutions to your needs and can work with you on improving techniques / designs to value engineer components. Other reasons to choose us include:

  • We can fold or bend a range of materials, including aluminium, stainless steel, mild steel, galvanised, Durbar sheets and plates, Zintec and more.
  • We use computer-assisted numerical control technology for more precise, accurate results.
  • We can save your specifications to our computer database, so if you require more of the same fold we can work on it immediately. 
  • Robot folding and automated panel folding reduce labour costs, meaning we can offer very competitive rates.
  • Our machines run 24/7, to get the job done faster.

Reasons to choose us for your sheet metal folding needs

With our state-of-the-art industry leading equipment, we are able to provide you with completely bespoke, customisable metal sheet folding. Our precision bending service is ready and able to carry out projects of any calibre and size. 

Our CNC systems also make it easy for any customer requiring large batches metal folding and at regular intervals. This saves time on both your end and our end, making the process much smoother, quicker and driving down costs.

We also have a safety edge tooling process. This allows us to eliminate the chance of any sharp edges being left on the finished products by adding a tight 180-degree fold on to the edge of the folding steel. We also have tools at our disposal such as the roller-v tool, which protects folding steel and metal of various finishes from marks or damage during the metal folding process.

So as you can see, we are extremely dedicated to providing the very best sheet metal folding service. Not just in Derbyshire but across the UK.
