Press Braking

Press Braking-Ohio Contract Manufacturing Specialists

Metal fabrication is a long process and it involves quite a hefty amount of procedures. With these procedures, there are machines, skilled personnel and machinists, and even components involved. One of the most important of these machines is the press brake.

The press brake, or sometimes called the finger brake, is a machine that performs different types of movement in bending and in forming metal sheets and other forms of steel. Manufacturers and metal fabrication companies and experts use different types of press brakes – but why is it called a press brake anyway? Why not a metal sheet bender or former?

Press Brake History

Let’s start with the word press – pressing is the term used to apply pressure on a particular surface or area. Then, in the late 14th century, “press” became a machine utilized to press and squeeze clothes, as well as other plants like olives and fruits like grapes.

From this term, the word press has evolved to be a machine or a device that applies force through squeezing.

In around the 15th century, the term “brake” was defined to be an instrument or a machine that is used for either pounding or crushing. From the Old English definition, the word brake was left and it was soon derived to “break” which means to divide objects in a violent way or to destroy.

Since then, fabricators and manufacturing companies have been using press brakes as a part of the manufacturing and the creating process.

Many, if not all manufacturing companies and metal fabricators use press brakes to help mold, shape, and form metal. We here at Ohio Contract Manufacturing Specialists are one of those companies – and we are one company that can help you drastically and greatly with the products and the materials that you need.

The Importance of Press Braking

The essence of press braking lies with the product, component, material, or equipment that you want to manufacture. For instance, if you are looking for frame-like components that would be used as an outline for a vehicle, you need to decide on the shape and the form your product would have.

Without press braking, metal sheets, as well as alloys would not be formed and shaped in the ways they can. Even if you have strong people working for you, you wouldn’t be able to rely on their strength to help you mold and shape the metal – plus, it’s going to be a long time before they can complete work.

With press braking, you would be able to:

  • Produce the materials, components, and equipment you need at a high volume and a fast rate
  • Save on labor and work fees
  • Get the form, shape, and the design you want for the metals and steels
  • Focus on other processes involving metal fabrication
