CNC Press Brake Operation
CNC Press Brake used to accurately form parts using a wide variety of material types, thickness, and radii. In addition, punch and die are used in combination to bend sheet metal from acute to obtuse angles with the highest of tolerances.
Watson Engineering, Inc. utilizes brake presses from 6 to 250 tons to manufacture metal components to customers’ specifications. Also, Watson’s team is capable of press braking parts with a part size of up to a 10′ in width while holding the tightest of tolerances.
While Watson has over 20 press forming machines for forming and bending. Due to the range in size from 50 tons to 250 tons. Skilled operators also specialize in prototype and low to medium volume production press brake formed parts. Finally, CNC press brake forming is a low-cost alternative to expensively tooled components.
