CNC Fabrication

Fabricating sheet metal into various shapes & sizes is a necessary part of the service Richards Sheet Metal provide for its many loyal customers.

Fabricating sheet metal can be achieved in a variety of ways, the most common of which is the use of brake press technology, of which, Richards Sheet Metal have in abundance, with two high end brake press facilities.

Sheet metal fabrication is the process by which most metal components are formed, such as brackets, enclosures & electrical boxes. More often than not these components are formed with the assistance of CNC brake press technology, as this ensures a quick fabrication on laser cut arts for our customers.

Sheet metal is shaped when it is forced between two tools by a brake press, the top tool being referred to as the punch & the bottom tool known as the die. The bend angle is predominantly determined by the depth of the punch within this die.

Our Pressbrake Machines

Richards Sheet Metal have access to two of the most highly sophisticated brake press machines on todays market, one Bystronic & one Amada, of which, both can offer versatility & variable volume. This ensures that we are now capable of large volume sheet metal fabrication, giving us a major advantage over our competitors.
