Our employees are a combination of time served engineers with many years experience in the sheet metal industry, and degree qualified Mechanical Engineers providing you with an excellent knowledge base to draw upon. Based on learning gained from a massive portfolio of jobs you can benefit from our engineer’s expertise in press process development.
We work with the full range of latest materials ranging from deep drawing steels through high strength low alloy steels such as S460 to high grade Domex, Docol, CPW800 and dual-phase steels. We also produce many components in stainless steel, aluminium, titanium and inconel.
Our presses range from 50 tonnes up to 800 tonnes, with a bed size of 2500 x 1250 x 970mm stroke. Using computer-controlled accumulators we can simulate mechanical pressing speeds and trial your production process. By using deep drawing and multi-stage press processes we can achieve complex pressings with minimal financial outlay by you. This range in capacity allows us to successfully support your needs and achieve the short lead times expected in today’s market. Your pressings can be supplied in either a pressed form or to a finished condition specified by you.
With the ability to fold up to 3m long, laser or cropped blanks can be CNC formed within fine limits on our brake press facility.
For sheet metal folding we have the latest CAD/CAM software to unfold your designs Prior to forming on our Safan electronic Pressbrakes.
With capacity up to 3m Long, we can fold all sheet metals up to 10mm thick using our comprehensive range of stock tooling. Offering shortest lead times at minimum costs.
