Metal FabricatingYour business can rely on Federal Equipment to provide you with the metal fabricating equipment or any specialized equipment and services that you require to keep your business running effectively and efficiently while increasing your profitability.

Types of Metal Fabricating Equipment

Sheet metal is a material that is used in many industries. Metal fabrication is the process that includes the creation of machines, parts, and structures from various raw materials. The process of structuring and constructing machinery into finished products from raw material is called metal fabrication.  Metal fabricating equipment is used to create these products from metal materials.

Metal Fabricating Equipment – Brake Dies and Punch Tooling

Brake ties and punch tooling are essential types of metal fabricating equipment. Brake dies and punch tooling are absolutely essential when working with metal because they work to bend the material into the exact shape needed for a specific application. With options such as brake dies and punch tooling kits, Federal Equipment has the products that make the process of bending metal much easier by offering you top performance and precision.

Metal forming with a press brake involves placing sheet metal between a punch and die and applying force to bend the sheet into a desired shape. While standard metal punches and dies are available for common features such as 90-degree angles, many parts require some type of specialized tooling. Typically such tools are machined from metal, in a costly process that can take days of a machinist’s time and delay part delivery. One alternative to conventional machined tooling: press brake tooling 3D printed from fiber-reinforced polymer. 3D-printed punches and dies can be designed and built quickly and at lower cost than machined tools, enabling the company to get to production faster.

Metal Fabricating Equipment – Shears and Hand tools

Federal Equipment offers sheet metal hand tools that can shear, bend, and notch sheet metal for race car and automotive fabrication or heating and cooling applications.

Metal Fabricating Equipment – Plate Bending Rolls

Plate Bending RollsA plate rolling machine is a machine that will roll different kinds of metal sheet into a round or conical shape. It can be also called a “roll bending machine”, “plate bending machine” or “rolling machine”.

According to Wikipedia, “There are different kinds of technology to roll the metal plate:

  • Four-roller machines have a top roll, the pinching roll, and two side rolls. The flat metal plate is placed in the machine on either side and “pre-bent” on the same side. The side rolls do the work of bending. The pinching roll holds the plate.
  • Three-roller machines (variable pitch aka variable geometry) have one pressing top roll and two pressing side rolls. The three-roll variable pitch works by having all three rolls able to move and tilt. The top roll moves in the vertical plane and the side rolls move on the horizontal plane. When rolling, the top roll presses the metal plate between the two side rolls. The advantage of having the variable three roll is the ability to roll many thicknesses and diameters of cylinders.
