Press Brakes, Panel Benders

These machines form predetermined, simple to complex bends of sheet metal and plate material by clamping the workpiece between a matching punch and die. Press brakes can bend thin gauge sheet metal up to very thick plate, while panel benders are used to bend only gauge sheet metal. Press brakes typically cost less than panel benders, which usually employ some level of automation and produce many more parts per hour.
