Turret punching offers the customer a host of specialist tooling requirements. i.e.; electrical conduit knockouts, recess dimples and various sizes of airflow louvres, plus any bespoke shapes or profiles.The sheet size/working area is 2500mm x 1250mm with sheet repositioning to increase the working area. A maximum hole diameter single hit of 76mm for 1.5mm thickness material. Our maximum punching capacity is 6mm mild steel or 4mm stainless steel.

CNC Folding & Forming
High tech 8 axis Amada press brakes have been a major investment for Sheet Metal Services.

We believe that you get what you pay for, and over the past 25 years, Amada UK has helped us stay ahead of our competitors on folding technology. 8 axis Amada gives you state of the art bending, at its best. 1 off Amada HFE 100-30: 3000mm/100 tonne automation technology.

3 off Amada HFE 80-25: 2500mm/80 tonne with automation technology. CNC press brakes are designed to form materials accurately within 0.1mm. Prototypes and large batch consignments are ideal, especially with the quick release tooling and much-improved setup times. SMS press brakes automatically monitor and adjust the bending force across the beam length at 6 points. The control panel technology adjusts and compensates for any potential variation in the raw material thickness. This gives angle consistency and perfection over the full bend length.
