BBC Steel Corp has has the capabilities to bend metal with the use of our powerful press brakes. Press brakes, also known as Brake Presses or just brakes are machines used to bend sheet metal using tooling known as dies and punches. The Brake Press has an upper and lower section. The upper holds the punch which has a general v shape to it, the lower has a matching shape and it known as the die. The two sections of the press brake are moved together forcing the sheet metal between them to bend. We can bend metal up to 24′ long and over an inch thick.
