Metal Forming

Metal forming is the process of fashioning metal parts and objects through mechanical deformation; the workpiece is reshaped without adding or removing material, and its mass remains unchanged. Nearly every interaction people have from the moment they get up each day involves objects that have been impacted by metal forming. At Cedar Lake Engineering, we utilize the following metal forming machines (with their capabilities):

  • Brake presses from 20 ton to 500 ton
  • CNC controlled folding machine
  • Lengths up to 144”
  • Various metals with a variety of thickness measures

We achieve metal forming through metal pressing, sheet metal fabrication (Press Brake, CNC Turret Punch Press, Laser Cutting and Welding), and laser cutting. Most press brakes are manually fed by an operator who holds a metal workpiece between a punch and die and against a gauge to provide a pre-set bend or series of bends in the metal, making it ideal for producing bent parts such as enclosures and cabinets. A CNC Turret Punch Press is used to sequentially punch a series of shapes or parts, following a computer-controlled blueprint. Laser Cutting uses a powerful, highly focused beam of computer-guided light to fashion desired shapes from materials up to ½” thick.
