Metal Forming

Metal Folding Capacity

We understand the importance of ongoing investment in the latest technologies, equipment and training to the high standard of our output quality and IATF 16949 certification. Our programme of continuous improvement means that our metal bending and folding capacity can meet the most demanding metal fabrication contracts, large or small, simple or complex.

Newfield’s modern metal fabrication facility includes 10 press brakes and a new, fully automated forming cell. It is comprised of a 230T press, 150kg bendmaster and ToolMaster. The cell can produce unmanned parts weighing in excess of 100kg and complete changeovers for multiple product runs. It also uses the ACB system, which monitors and corrects metal forming during manufacture to remove the need for rework.

Our extensive metal folding capacity includes Trumpf, Amada and Bystronic machines, with a press range from 50 to 400 tonnes. Press brakes can often handle a broader range of material thicknesses than panel benders, allowing us to maintain versatility within the market.

The use of semi-automated measurement systems reduces manufacture processing time, improving site efficiency. This is also supported with offline programming to minimise downtime on new product introductions.
