Folding & Bending
C&S Fabrications are fully equipped with a two CNC press brakes for all your folding metal requirements. With a maximum bending length of 4000mm and 220 tonnes maximum pressure, C&S are equipped to fold materials from 1mm thick up to 20mm thick.
Materials that can be Folded
- Mild Steel
- Stainless Steel
- Galvanised Steel
- Hardox 400, 450, 500, 550
C&S Fabrications also has the tooling capacity for more specialist types of folds including safety edges / hems (dutch folds).
Folding is also an accurate process for forming sheet metal parts to a specific radius or shape. C&S Fabrications regularly develop patterns and form shapes such as square to rounds, segment (lobster back) bends, pipe branches and hoppers. The use of 3D CAD Simulation software improves accuracy when developing shapes using a press brake.
