What Is a Bending Brake?

Bending brakes or sheet metal brakes are metalworking machines that are used generally for mild gauge steel sheet metal, aluminum sheets or even alloys. A bending brake, or the more complex box and pan brakes, are set up for predetermined bends for standard parts or custom fabrications. Once the sheet metal is clamped (clamping bar or radii bars) to the flat surface of a bending brake or stand, the sheet metal is forced by a gate or plate into the appropriate bends. Bending of the sheet metal is done manually, by hydraulics or by a foot peddle, in most cases; and bends of up to 120˚ are common on most brakes.

Mittler Bros. manufactures and sells complex box and pan brake systems. These systems are ideal fabrication tools for complex bends, and finished shapes, e.g. car panels, fenders, and airplane skins that require many bends or unusual shapes.
