Sheet Metal Bending & Folding

Bending is an essential step in the fabrication of most sheet metal components and requires considerable technical skill.

We excel at sheet metal bending and rolling.

Precision Bending 

Bending is an essential step in the fabrication of most sheet metal products and, as you would expect, at Hitherbest we specialise in this process. 

From the technically-demanding step-bending of column casings, through to the V-bending of sheet metal enclosures, our highly skilled press brake operatives have it covered.

We have a suite containing 3 state-of-the-art Amada press brakes, each offering:

  • 7 CNC axes  enabling the precision bending of cut parts
  • A large working envelope allowing us to bend sheets of metal up to 4 metres in length, with a capacity of 1700kN (170 tonnes)
  • an extensive range of tooling enabling us to produce even the most complex fabrications.

Consistent roll bending results

Hitherbest also has the capability to produce large rolled fabrications, such as conveyor systems, using our 2 Baileigh hydraulic roll bending machines. 

These machines are the modern day work-horses of manufacturing, delivering consistent results over a life that can span decades.

We have a member of staff who specialises in rolling sheet metal and pipework, so you can be confident that our rolled fabrications will have the quality our customers have come to expect from Hitherbest.
