S&O Fabrications have always aimed to remain at the forefront of the precision fabrication industry; and as such, to ensure we are able to attain our ongoing objective to offer an all-inclusive precision fabrication service, we have invested in high speed, high capacity precision press brakes from the market leader- Amada.
Our latest investment in the press brake department is an Amada HFE 3i- 7 axis, 170 ton 3 metre press brake. Being the first company in the UK to take delivery of such a machine underpins our commitment to remain at the cutting edge of technological advancement. This machine works in unison with our Amada HFP- 7 axis, 130 ton 3 metre press brake. These machines are complemented perfectly by our laser cutting and fabrication services, enabling us to produce accurate, high quality and high tolerance components completely in-house. Our machines utilise a wide range of tools and dies, enabling us to fold a wide variety of material types and thicknesses; and apply, for example, tight return folds, edge and flattened folds and acute folds.
Our press machines are programmed offline in the drawing office, which ensures that we suffer reduced downtime as we do not require the operator to make programs at the machine. Removing the task of program creation from the operator helps to reduce errors, as the proprietary software in the drawing office includes simulation software – so we can see errors and problems before they arise.
