Computer numerically controlled folding is the manufacturing process carried out by CNC press brakes. These machines can bend sheet metal work from just a few mm across to sections many metres long on the largest industrial machines.
If you currently use two businesses for laser cutting and sheet metal folding, then LGM Engineering can make life easier for you by offering both services. Having added a 100 ton pressbrake with CNC controlled 6 Axis and a 3 metre beam length to our plant, We can now provide a laser and Waterjet cutting services and the capacity for sheet metal folding as well.
We have the latest in technology when it comes to press brakes and is operated by an experienced team of engineers. We know how important precision is in folding and our machines provide outstanding productivity at every stage, from the programming through to the folding.
Our machines are capable of forming the following material:
We are able to carry out the CNC folding process using the latest in automation software ensuring our prices are affordable to work within your budget. Get in touch today for a bespoke quote for the folding you require.
Along with standard 2D cad files we can import most 3D files into our unfolder software, below you will find all the different file formats that are currently supported.
