FAQs

Q: What is a sheet metal brake?

A: A sheet metal brake is a metal working machine that allows for the bending of sheet metal. It is also known as a bending machine, bending brake, sheet metal folder or just a folder.

The brake includes a flat surface where the metal material is placed, and a clamping bar, which is used hold the material securely during the bend. The clamping action can be manual, automatic or operated using a foot pedal. The front plate of the machine is hinged and may be lifted, forcing the material to be extended over a straight edge to bend and follow the plate.

Q: How much does a metal brake cost?

A: The price of a metal brake varies greatly depending on the brand, size and type of material. Some metal brakes can be found at budget-friendly prices, with some products priced lower than $400. Most metal brakes will be priced anywhere between $400 up to $1,000, while some premium priced products will cost more than $1,000.

Make sure to do your proper research and read all of the reviews before purchasing in order to find a high-quality metal brake of the proper size that be used with the type of material needed for your bending work.

Q: What are the box fingers used for when using a metal brake?

A: A box and pan sheet metal brake is also commonly known as a finger brake because it includes steel fingers of different widths. This type of metal brake is used to create pans, boxes and other objects of similar shapes. In order to create these shapes, all you need to do is to use the fingers that are needed to make the bend.

The box fingers are secured by thumbscrews, so you need to make sure that the ones that you’re going to use are fastened securely and tightened firmly before you use the box and pan brake.

What is the minimum fold size?

Asked by: Fash A
The max fold is 135 degrees. This means you can take a flat piece of metal and fold it 135 degrees from flat. This leaves a 45 degree bend.
