Sheet Metal Brakes
All of our sheet metal brakes are equipped with a CNC backstop. Before a component of a build is put in place, the part dimensions and bend deductions are input into the machine. The machine then runs a simulation with the proper dies to make sure no collisions will occur. From there, our operator can put the part in place and the backstop will automatically move.
Precision is our operators number one priority. Our ability to create sheet metal structures heavily depend on them.
At Empire Metal Works, we have a number of manual punches that can be used in conjunction with the shear to add a radius to each of the pieces corners, or punch holes/shapes using different dies.
Fully Automated Turret Punch
Our turret punch automatically can switch between dies and move the material without assistance from the operator. This allows us to form louvers, as well as unique design features. The full automation ensures the part is 100% accurate, with even spacing and symmetry. Our engineers develop the program with the help of AI, which takes the time consuming repetition out of programming.
… And more!
