Metal Bending - Up to 20 to 21 Foot Wide Brake Forming

Metal bending is the process of deforming sheet metal into an angle. Sheet metal is forced by a press brake between an upper and lower tool. The punch being the upper component and die being the lower tool. The press brake is what manipulates the punch and die to apply a bending force which is what bends the part.
