At B & B Manufacturing, we have more than 50 years of experience as a sheet metal fabricator, and two of our metalworking specialties include bending and forming.
Our facility houses hydraulic press brakes in the 20-ton to 350-ton range as well as plate a roller and rotary draw tube bender. All of this equipment is engineered to provide an exceptional degree of accuracy, and we pair it with True Radius Tooling to consistently attain very close tolerances on the finished parts. As a technology-based shop, we use sophisticated software tools to program our CNC bending and forming machines directly from Solidworks models, which provides a seamless transition from design to manufactured part.
Our capabilities include sheet metal bending and forming, which are processes that involve applying forces to sheet metal to cause it to change its shape. With our technical know-how and equipment capabilities, we can bend and form sheet metal into a wide variety of complex shapes. Hydraulic clamping and quick setup tooling combined with high-speed presses enable us to process orders quickly and accurately.
The primary metals we work with include aluminum, stainless, and many other types and grades of steel. We also work with bronze, copper, titanium, zinc, and other metals, any of which can be pre-coated, plated, polished, or powder coated. If your job requires custom tooling, we have the ability to build it in-house to save time and money. We handle sheet metal measuring up to ½” in thickness and support maximum bend length of 168’.
As an experienced fabrication shop, we also offer additional services, such as freehand welding, punching, and tapping, as well as assembly services. With our flexible production model, we can manage orders of any size, from prototype to high volume. We have experience in many different industries and are capable of complying with challenging specifications and standards requirements.
