Brake Press Project


A client from the off-highway industry came to Chicago Metal Fabricators to brake press form a high tensile strength steel component. The 4,500 lbs component was CNC bevel plasma cut using a Messer MPC high definitional bevel plasma cutter. Then we press brake formed the 110,000 PSI tensile strength, AR400 steel into a .750″ thick, 18′ long and 8′ wide component. Finally, we tested, inspected and delivered 20 of the high tensile strength components each month.
