7 axis CNC Press Braking technology

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 investments in the press brake department are- an Amada HFE 3i- 7 axis, 170 ton 3 metre press brake, and a smaller, efficient HFE 5020. Being the first company in the UK to take delivery of such machines underpins our commitment to remain at the cutting edge of technological advancement. These machines work 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.

Full service

Our press machines are programmed offline in the drawing office, which ensures that we benefit from 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.
