Long Metal Forming Capabilities

Up to 60’ in continuous length.

At HW Metals, we not only specialize steel plate bending and forming, we operate one of the largest press brakes in the United States. We have two 30’, 1250-ton Cincinnati Press Brakes, with CNC Auto-form, which allows us to run independently or in tandem. 

24" x 5/8" Shearing steel plate

This massive, custom-designed machine gives us 2500 tons of force, 36” throat depth and a total forming capacity up to 60’ in  continuous length. By making large-size parts from a single piece of material, rather than welding or otherwise joining two or more smaller pieces, we are able to deliver a better quality product. It also reduces material requirements and reduces or eliminates the need for welding and other joining processes, leading to lower prices and faster turnaround times for our customers.
