Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a 2000-ton press brake?


    A 2000-ton press brake is a powerful machine used in the metalworking industry to bend and shape large and heavy metal sheets or plates. The “2000-ton” refers to the amount of force the machine can apply to the metal sheet or plate, which is 2000 tons or 4,000,000 pounds of force.

    With such a high amount of force, a 2000-ton press brake can bend thick and heavy metal sheets or plates, typically up to several inches in thickness, with a wide range of dimensions and shapes. The specific dimensions and thicknesses of metal that can be bent on a 2000-ton press brake will depend on the machine’s characteristics, such as the size of the bed, stroke, and throat depth.

    A 2000-ton press brake is typically used in heavy-duty manufacturing applications, such as shipbuilding, construction, and heavy machinery production, where large and thick metal components are required. It is a versatile machine that can bend a variety of metals, including carbon steel, aluminum, and stainless steel, and it is capable of handling large and complex projects with high precision and accuracy.

  • What industries does press braking serve?


    Press braking is a metalworking process that involves shaping and bending metal sheets or plates using a press brake machine. This process is widely used across different industries to produce custom metal components with high precision and accuracy.

    In the aerospace industry, press braking is used to produce aircraft parts such as wing ribs, fuselage frames, and engine components. The automotive industry utilizes press braking to manufacture chassis parts, brackets, and suspension components. The construction industry uses press braking to create wall panels, roof panels, and other structural components.

    Press braking is also used in the electrical industry to create enclosures and chassis for electronic devices, as well as in the medical industry to manufacture surgical instruments, hospital beds, and medical carts. The rail industry uses press braking to create train frames, carriages, and track components.

    Overall, press braking serves a variety of industries by providing a versatile and precise method for shaping and bending metal sheets and plates. It is an essential process that enables manufacturers to create custom metal components that meet their specific requirements and standards.
