Press Braking

Shearform has the largest Press Braking Capacity in Australia and there is little we will not be able to do for our customers from small intricate bends on light materials through to heavy bending on thick materials. Our Press brakes range from your standard 3100mm width up 14,000mm, up to 3,000 Tonne Bending capacity which includes largest Press Brake in the Southern Hemisphere with a large existing Tooling library ensures quality bending on all materials.

Our CNC Press Brake Controllers have varying technologies to enable us to manufacture detailed components controlling bending forces and various backstop configurations allowing us to not only be accurate with clean bends but also be repeatable in large production runs.

Due to our large capacity and many machines we are equipped to handle one off prototypes to high-volume production runs and welcome any enquires if you think we may be able to help.
