Press Brake - Sheet Metal Bender

CNC Press Brake Machine For Metal Sheet Bending

AMADA Press Brake - Product Range

AMADA New Zealand offers a vast CNC press brake machine range equipped to suit a vast number of production requirements. This includes machines such as a stand-alone AMADA press brake for sale to a fully automated bending robot system. 


A CNC press brake is also often referred to as a sheet metal bender. By clamping the metal sheet between its moveable punch or die, it applies sheet bending into a particular shape. 


Any AMADA press brake for sale by us comes with top-of-the-line software and technical support to maximise your output. We can provide you with sheet bending training to help elevate your production quality and capacity. As far as a sheet metal bender goes, our press brake machine for sale is easy to use and adjustable.

CNC Press Brake Machine - FAQs

A press brake machine is most commonly used in an industrial setting for metal sheet bending. Workpieces are clamped into predetermined shapes between the top movable punch and a bottom die of the sheet metal bender. Each metal type has different physical properties and those should be considered during sheet bending to avoid workpiece damage. For example, high-carbon steel is generally less bendable than aluminium sheet metal due to differences in strength. The die and punch used, and the force set on the sheet metal bending machine must match the metal type.


Metal sheet bending requires a large amount of force, which is measured by tonnage. Generally speaking, the more tons of force a press brake machine provides, the thicker the metal that can be bent. A hydraulic-powered press brake machine for sale is generally acquired to achieve very high amounts of force. On the other hand, a servo-electric CNC press brake provides less amount of force but the highest degree of accuracy. In the AMADA press brake for sale range, you will find both alternatives to meet your specific workshop requirements. 


Any modern AMADA CNC press brake for sale can be fitted with a wide range of punches and dies. In New Zealand, the most common metal-shaping applications include furniture, metal containers, metal artwork, structural components, and more. Although seemingly simple in appearance, a sheet metal bender machine is extremely versatile and technologically advanced. Hence why almost any metal sheet bending application can be achieved using an AMADA sheet metal brake for sale. Most workshops used our press brakes to produce multiple copies of pieces used for further processing, with utmost consistency.

The press brake machine is undoubtedly one of the most valued components of a metal fabrication workshop today. It offers numerous advantages ranging from increased capacity to perform complex manufacturing, automation, and an overall increase in productivity. Here are some of the main benefits of using a CNC press brake machine: 


Waste reduction: Due to its computer numerical control (CNC) function, this sheet metal bender is designed to maximise the efficiency and use of raw materials. The ability to design workpieces and go through the sheet bending process with precision reduces faults in production quality. Thus, investing in a good press brake for sale can ultimately reduce production costs through optimal use of raw materials.


Creating complex designs: A wide range of tooling enables the AMADA press brake to perform operations beyond sheet bending. Fabricators can now perform additional tasks such as burring, and coining to suit custom manufacturing requirements.


Automation: The AMADA press brake for sale range comes with a range of semi or fully-automatic processing capabilities. Sheet metal bender automation instantly reduces labour costs and the need for significant post-processing of fabricated metal parts. 


Safety features and greater control: Any new AMADA press brake machine for sale is equipped with smart technology such as laser sensors to prevent accidents. Moreover, operators now have sheet bending control like never before when it comes to bending speed and pressure. The die and punch mechanisms that are at the core of this sheet metal bender provide unmatched bending accuracy. 


In conclusion, the impact of this sheet metal bending machine on the manufacturing industry cannot be underestimated. If you want to increase production rates and quality, it’s time to invest in a sheet metal brake for sale.
