Common Questions

Why should I consider California Steel Services for my sheet metal forming projects?

Equipped with CNC stations and automated back gauges, our press brakes maintain high accuracy and deliver exceptional quality and consistency. Our highly trained computer operators pre-program the production steps for forming multiple bends at different angles.

California Steel Services employs four press brakes that are fed by our in-house state-of-the-art leveling line, laser and plasma cutters. The complete in-house production cycle ensures speedy delivery and competitive pricing for short- and long-run projects of any forming complexity.

What is a press brake?

A press brake also called a brake press, is a machine tool that is used for bending sheet and plate material. In this machine, the workpiece is clamped between a matching punch and die to form predetermined bends.

When should sheet metal bending be considered?

Sheet metal bending is a process during which a piece of sheet metal is bent at the required angle to form the desired shape. The bending action causes deformation along one axis, and to create complex shapes, a series of operations can be performed. The size of the bent pieces can vary from bracket-sized parts to large enclosures or chassis that are 30 feet in length.

The common products created using sheet metal bending are formed angles, Z purlins, door guards, formed channels, Z plates, stair pans, and C channels.
